AIM Academy


AIM Academy is one of Canada's leading schools and continues to offer career-training programs leading to diplomas in acupuncture and Chinese herbs. We have been offering continuous quality education since 1986, and we can truly offer an experienced faculty and a proven curriculum. Our faculty is comprised of Registered Acupuncturists, Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners, nutritionists, professionals in anatomy, physiology, pathology, psychology, kinesiology, shiatsu therapists, and other fields of health care, as well as specialists in business, communications and ethics. 

Careers in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine demand the heart, knowledge, skill, and clinical experience that a 2200-hour program can deliver. Our programs are one of the oldest continuously operating programs in Canada. We offer students a solid grounding in both Eastern and Western medicine, including Traditional Chinese Medicine Theory as well as anatomy, physiology and pathology. Working in the West, students must be able to communicate with Western medical professionals who refer clients to them. They must also be able to communicate with clients who think in terms of Western medicine. An understanding of Western medicine, coupled with a strong background in Traditional Chinese medicine, strengthens the therapist's practice on every level. 

AIM Academy operates ethically and dependably, balancing our respect for the traditions of Eastern Medicine with a responsibility to grow and innovate. The school welcomes people from all backgrounds and walks of life. By its commitment to high ethical standards, quality in faculty and curriculum, and service to students and the community, AIM Academy has played a significant role in promoting Eastern Medicines nationally and internationally. The programs offered at AIM Academy are one of the highest standards in the world. Graduates of AIM Academy are able to apply for licenses, registration and/or certification all around the world. Currently, we have graduates working across Canada and in the United States, Denmark, Mexico, England, Austria, Israel, Zimbabwe, New Zealand, etc. 

At AIM Academy we believe that the power to change your life is in your hands. And we have the track record, the knowledge, and the commitment to help make your study of Chinese Medicines as rewarding as you want it to be.
