- A Three Staged Approach to Treating Emotional Trauma with Chinese Medicine by CT Holman

Advanced Acupuncture for Anxiety, Insomnia & Depression by Susie Hayes
As a conscientious Acupuncturist, it is imperative to consider the mental and emotional well-being of a patient to arrive at an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment plan. Ancient medical texts from thousands of years ago insist upon an inextricable link between mental and physical health, giving tremendous importance to the Mental (Jing Shen) in physiology and all considerations of pathological prognoses.
You will receive a unique synthesis from the ancient medical texts, as clinically practiced, researched, and taught by Tran Viet Dzung, MD over the past several decades, a clinical approach that continues to be practiced by thousands of acupuncturists and doctors throughout the world. Reflecting his view of the integral nature of Jing Shen in health and illness, Dr. Tran is often heard noting that "the Mental is everything!"
"Excellent course, and Susie is a fantastic teacher. I look forward to taking more courses from her. I am excited to be able to put the knowledge I learned today into immediate use!" ~ Laine

- A Five Spirit Approach to Treating Shock and Trauma by Lorie Dechar

- An Introduction to New Scar Therapy Treatments: “Alleviating the Long-Term Effects of Injury/Surgery” - by Mary Elizabeth Wakefield and MichelAngelo
Patients continue to suffer from chronic pain and disability from the residual impact of scar tissue formation long after the initial trauma or surgery. While Western medicine can be effective in addressing the impact of acute trauma, there are few remedies for treating the long-term effects of scars.
Research indicates the acupuncture increases circulation, regenerates the nerves and tissues, lessens pain and breaks up adhesions which pull on the organs, muscles, tissues and meridians. This course explores new techniques for treating different types of scars, the physiological factors that affect healing, side effects of scar adhesions, issues of trauma and cellular memory, topical scar applications, specific palpation skills, and other treatment modalities.

- Classical Herbal Formulas: Understanding Physiology and Clinical Applications by Sharon Weizenbaum (Herbal Course)
This online course is made up from a six part webinar series taught by Sharon Weizenbaum. It is designed to bring light to some useful yet obscure herbal formulas from the Shang Han Za Bing Lun (Treatise on Damage From Cold and Miscellaneous Illnesses). Beginning with an orientation and introduction to the series, Sharon will then teach the 6 formulas listed below.
- Module 1 - Introduction to the six part series.
- Module 2 - Chi Xiao Dou Dang Gui San for allergic skin illnesses, eczema, late menstruation, and vaginitis.
- Module 3 - Dang Gui Bei Mu Ku Shen Wan for urinary tract infections, inhibited urination in pregnancy, and constipation in pregnancy.
- Module 4 - Ma Huang Fu Zi Xi Xin Tang for PCOS, thyroid cyst, uterine, anal or eyelid prolapse, and asthma.
- Module 5 - Fu Zi Geng Mi Tang for diarrhea, abdominal pain, post-surgical or post-partum abdominal pain, and nausea in pregnancy.
- Module 6 - Yi Yi Fu Zi Bai Jiang San for intestinal abscess, scaly skin conditions. Impetigo, and middle ear infection.
Each formula is a window into understanding how physiology can go wrong, what happens when it goes wrong, how to recognize this detour from correct physiology and how to treat it with Chinese formulas. Hence each formula discussion is also a lesson in physiology from a classic formula perspective. Classic physiology is an area that Sharon Weizenbaum is uniquely able to teach. She offers a perspective that is extremely practical and clarifying, allowing students to place formulas easily into their repertoire.
Most modules include an ebook for each formula prepared by Sharon Weizenbaum in addition to the slide handouts and lecture.
- Gu Syndrome: Unique Strategies for the Treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Lyme Disease, Parasites and Other Chronic Inflammatory Conditions by Heiner Fruehauf (Herbal Course)
Prof. Fruehauf’s lecture will introduce the ancient Chinese medical concept of "Gu Syndrome," and underscore its outstanding clinical significance for the modern Chinese medicine practitioner.
The presentation consists of an analysis of the mental and physical ramifications of "Gu" or "Rottenness Syndrome" as described in classical Chinese texts, a discussion of Gu cases treated by the presenter, and detailed clinical instructions for the herbal treatment of systemic funguses, parasites, viruses, spirochetes (especially Lyme Disease) and other hidden pathogens. In addition, the speaker will present related content from his research about the Wang Fengyi tradition of Five Element Emotional Healing (xingli liaobing).
"Heiner Freuhaf is an amazing and generous teacher. He has the perfect blend of academic and clinical experience. I really enjoy all of his classes." ~ Yvonne
- Addressing the Root of all Disease: Secrets for Treating Digestive Disorders by Heiner Fruehauf (Herbal Course)
Human health is dependent on the constant replenishment of post-natal qi that we derive from the food we eat and the air we breathe. Due to the central importance of the Earth element in Chinese medicine, many classical traditions thus focus on regulating the spleen/stomach, even when modern medicine does not identify any pathological changes in the digestive tract.
In addition, the modern industrial era has brought unique challenges to the natural process of digestion. Globalism has introduced a diversity of foods from all over the world into our diets at a rate that is unprecedented in the evolution of the human species. Our food has also undergone major changes in the ways of processing, additives, preservatives, genetic engineering, pesticides, hormones, chemical fertilizers and mono-crops. Faced with these rapid transformations in food production, locale, and seasonal availability, it is no surprise that a large percentage of our patients are suffering from digestive issues that range from allergies/sensitivities to chronic inflammatory bowel conditions.
Following in the footsteps of the “Earth School” of classical Chinese medicine, Dr. Heiner Fruehauf shares the clinical experiences of his teachers as well as his personal experiences from two decades of treating chronic patients by regulating the Earth element. In this four hour course, he shares his perspectives on treating chronic digestive disorders using classical Chinese herbal formulas as well as adjunctive therapies including dietary modification and nutritional supplementation.
- A Spirit at Rest: Treating Sleep Disorders with Chinese Medicine by Yvonne Farrell
According to the NIH (National Institute of Health), “Sleep loss and sleep disorders are among the most common yet frequently overlooked and readily treatable health problems. It is estimated that 50 to 70 million Americans chronically suffer from a disorder of sleep and wakefulness, hindering daily functioning and adversely affecting health and longevity. (NHLBI, 2003). Failure to recognize sleep problems not only precludes diagnosis and treatment—it also precludes the possibility of preventing grave public health consequences.”
This course will cover both the TCM and biomedical understanding of the physiology of sleep.
• Phases of sleep
• The yin and yang of restorative sleep
• The 5 spirits and their relationship to sleep
• Sleep hygiene
Students will have a deeper understanding of the nature and importance of healthy sleep. They will be able to recognize pathologies of sleep and the patterns associated with them. They will explore several different approaches to the treatment of these disorders.
- Master Tung’s Essential Points for Gynecological Conditions by Henry McCann
Master Tung's system of unique extra points is famous for its clinical efficacy, its simple needle techniques, and use of minimal points even in complex and chronic conditions. While most acupuncturists associated Tung’s acupuncture with pain management, it is equally effective in internal medicine, especially the management of women’s health.
Detailed descriptions of Master Tung's point locations, functions, and indications are covered in this course, as well as basic theory, needle technique, and clinical strategy.
"Great course! I've been hoping to attend a Tung Acupuncture course. It not only helped me with gynaecological conditions but various other problems that may also arise in my patients. Thanks!" ~ Taryn
- Assisted Reproductive Technology Overview for the Chinese Medicine Professional by Lee Hullender Rubin

Neuropuncture by Michael Corradino
- Neuropuncture: Theory and Mechanisms
- Neuropuncture Points and Electrical Acupuncture: Module 2
- Neuropuncture: Treating Lumbar Spine and Knee Conditions: Module 8
Neuropuncture combines Western neurophysiology and the holistic traditional TCM model. It creates treatment protocols that are evidence based and clinically reproducible and apply western medical sciences to the classical TCM module does not subtract from the efficacy of the “traditional” acupuncture system. It only amplifies and further explains the unique, powerful neuromodulating effects that can be scientifically understood and harnessed by Neuropuncture’s techniques. From depolarizing affected nerves, targeting specific receptors for the release of neuropeptides, to regulating dysfunctional autonomic reflexes.
"Great course, loved the topic and how it was presented with examples and videos and needling techniques. Would highly recommend it to all practitioners" ~ Naghmeh
