TEANECK, NJ, October 30, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ — TCMDirectory.com has been offering acupuncture related information for those who want to learn more about this ancient medical system. The website has many high quality articles that are relevant to Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and also practice building.
Two groups of visitors will benefit greatly from the content. Consumers can learn more about the benefits of acupuncture. Acupuncture is about channeling of "chi", or energy. The human body has nearly 400 acupuncture points that are recognized by the WHO. By applying acupuncture on these points, symptoms may be relieved quickly.
However, acupuncture need not be applied to the area where the symptoms are occurring. Acupuncture can be applied to points that are on another part of the body. Many symptoms that are experienced by the urban dweller can be treated using acupuncture. Some symptoms include back pain, neck pain, sore muscles, and hypertension. Such symptoms are usually caused by prolonged hours at work and by stress.
The art of acupuncture is not something that can be learned overnight. Practitioners have to spend years studying this art, which is based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) framework. Anyone who wants to practice acupuncture will need to educate themselves intensely. TCM Directory offers different types of educational tools and resources to help this group of visitors. There is a list of associations, information about Continuing Education (CEU), forums, news, and other educational tools.
To add to the wide array of information and tools that are already on the website, TCM Directory has gone out of its way to launch 3 free newsletters.
Newsletter 1: Acupuncture news.
Acupuncture is constantly being researched and tested by trusted organizations. Those who are interested in acupuncture and Chinese medicine will receive the latest news from this newsletter. It is important, especially for practitioners, to keep themselves abreast of the latest news in the Chinese medicine industry.
Newsletter 2: Acupuncture Jobs Alert.
Need a job? Then join the Jobs Alert Newsletter. The primary function of this newsletter is to send out the latest job alerts for acupuncturists. After an intense period of education, qualified acupuncturists can apply for jobs and start practicing as soon as possible.
Newsletter 3: Acupuncture Practice Building.
For those with several years of experience using acupuncture to heal others, starting a private practice may be the next career move. To own and run a successful practice is not easy. When in a job, the primary task is to heal others. With one’s own practice, the number of challenges start to mount. In a way, a private practice is like running a business. Besides practicing acupuncture, there are business decisions to be made. A wrong business decision may affect the business adversely.
The goal of the third newsletter is to equip practitioners with the right knowledge to start and run their own practice. This will increase their chances of success in the marketplace.
"The three newsletters provide industry news and insights. We firmly believe both practitioners and consumers will benefit greatly from the information that we release," commented Elie Goldschmidt, founder and CEO of TCM Directory.
Elie further commented that the reason why TCM Directory released three newsletters instead of one is that they wish to provide highly targeted information to their subscribers. Therefore, there is a need to segment the newsletters.
