Acupuncture Tour to China offers Chinese Medicine Professionals Continuing Education Credits


For acupuncturists looking to increase their clinical skills, the Integrative Healing Society ( will be offering its fourth annual tour to Hangzhou, China this fall. The two-week tour will be held from October 10 – 21, 2011 and will give Chinese medicine professionals and students a chance to study in university hospitals in China. NCCAOM licensed acupuncturists will be eligible to receive 30 continuing education credits.

In addition to acupuncture training, participants may also choose to study Chinese herbs, or acupressure and bodywork. While the acupuncture departments in China treat a large number of neurological conditions and pain syndromes, the Chinese herbal clinics have specialties including: internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology, gastro-enterolgy, respiratory therapy, and dermatology.

As part of the program those attending will receive 30 hours of clinical observation in some of the busy hospitals that are associated with Zhejiang Chinese Medical University. The clinical observation program in China provides a great opportunity for therapists to see a large number of patients being treated. “In the acupuncture department we usually witness around 30 people being treated during the morning clinical rounds,” said James Spears the director of the Integrative Healing Society. “The herbal medicine department also gives participants the opportunity to witness large patient loads and improve their pulse taking skills,” continued James.

Also included in the course studies are 20 hours of lectures that will be given by numerous professors and doctors from China. The doctors that give the lectures are specialists in their fields, and typically the program has four or five different doctors that reside over the lecture series. The lectures will include topics on: liver disease, diabetes, gastric pain, gynecology, neurology, and cancer.

In addition to offering tours to China, the Integrative Healing Society also offers an online acupuncture course called Meridian Circuit Systems: A Channel Based Approach to Pattern Identification.
