We, Dr. Sunita Kapur & Dr. Raman kapur are both medical graduates from Delhi University. Dr. Raman Kapur started practicing Acupuncture about 30 years ago in (1981) and Dr.Sunita kapur joined him in the same practice about 23 years ago. It was always our cherished dream to impart good training to our colleagues who were keen on learning Acupuncture, but found it difficult to visit China to learn Acupuncture due to language problem and huge amount of cost involved.

So took place the birth of Institute of Acupuncture and natural medicines ( IANM) in 1992. It was formerly called ( ICANM). Since last 19 years, we have been giving lecture courses and practical training to doctors at the Institute. The basic class-room course in Acupuncture for a medical doctor is for 4 weeks ( short term courses-140 hours)) or Post Graduate Diploma in Acupuncture (1 year course, in affiliation with IGNOU).

However, we always felt, that it is better to conduct a one to one class room course, with only a small group of 5-10 doctors. But, then came the Internet Revolution, and with that we started getting requests from colleagues, both from India and abroad to develop an online course. Our medico colleagues thought , due to their busy work schedule, it would be very convenient for them to study the theory content online and then to visit  us for a short time for hands-on training in Acupuncture.

Due to untiring  efforts of both of us, this dream of an online acupuncture course was fulfilled. So all the class room training was now available to you at your own personal computer, where you can learn at your leisure, whenever you are free, without bothering to miss your busy practice to attend regular classes. All the doubts are solved by your tutor- Dr. Sunita Kapur, through the instant feedback mechanism .

This gave birth to the most comprehensive certificate course on Acupuncture on the web in the year 2003. We have developed the course to help you learn acupuncture with the utmost ease unparalleled by material in acupuncture texts and title. This has been done by our amazingly clear conceptualizations & animations that appear in all difficult topics through the course to give you a clear understanding of the subject matter. We have used the latest technological tools to develop these learning aids specially for you. Excellent illustrations form a part of the course. This helps to understand and clarify your concepts in acupuncture.
