Today is the first day of the Novosibirsk acupuncture class. Fifteen students signed up and 14 actually arrived. One of them is quarantined at home.

After listening to the lectures on “Etiology of Diseases”, “Pathogenesis”, “The Philosophical Foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine”, “Theory System of Traditional Chinese Medicine”, and “Meridians and Acupoints”, they further began to practice acupuncture. According to the guidance of Professor Wang Qicai of Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, this time, the “Quchi” acupoint is used as the acupoint for practicing the feeling of “Deqi”.

The trainees then performed their first practice on each other’s backs. Since many people are picking up acupuncture for the first time, it is a great improvement to be able to successfully complete the practice task today. It is also the first step in acupuncture life. Very commendable.

The BRICS International Medical and Health Cooperation Committee, the organizer of this interaction, has been advocating acupuncture and moxibustion treatment within the BRICS countries without injections and medicines. This project has been supported and loved by the majority of students. It has also attracted more and more organizations and institutions to participate in the popularization of traditional Chinese medicine technology.
