Welcome to the Won Institute
The Won Institute of Graduate Studies is an accredited graduate school offering professional Master's Degree programs in Acupuncture Studies and Won Buddhist Studies. We also offer Certificate programs in Chinese Herbal Medicine and Buddhist Pastoral Care. Our five on-site acupuncture clinics operate six days per week.
At the Won Institute, we believe that personal development is an important part of the learning process. To foster this development, all of our programs include non-denominational sitting and moving meditation. This intensive focus on meditation helps create compassionate, competent meditation teachers and gives acupuncturists a profound tool for treating patients.
We pride ourselves on our diverse faculty, many of whom are also professional practitioners, business owners, and meditation practitioners. Combined with small class sizes, this truly makes the Won Institute a one-of-a-kind learning environment and a great place to go to school.
Olympic Athletes Do It!! How about you?
A type of treatment for muscle soreness and healing is cupping. If you've been watching the Olympics, you saw it on many of the USA swim team. It works for them, but it also works for us average folks with sore muscles, a stubborn shoulder ache, or a kink that won't go away as well. Cupping is one of many tools that acupuncturists use to promote healing. Visit the clinics to learn more. Times are listed on the side. Call 215-884-9340 for an appointment.
