Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Tour to Hangzhou, China
The Integrative Healing Society www.ihsociety.com will be organizing an educational tour to Hangzhou, China in April of 2012. The two-week event is also approved by the NCCAOM for 30 continuing education credits, and will offer a unique lecture series based on the recently published book Meridian Circuit Systems: A Channel Based Approach to Pattern Identification.
Included in the program are 30 hours of clinical observation and 20 hours of lectures. The clinical rounds offer students and professionals of Chinese medicine a chance to study acupuncture, herbs, or tuina. In the acupuncture department participants will witness how neurological conditions are treated in university hospitals in China. While a variety of conditions are treated with acupuncture, the hospitals in China tend to use acupuncture for treating strokes, spinal pain, Bell’s palsy, and muscular-skeletal pain.
Participants in the tour may also choose to study herbal medicine, and several specialty departments are open to foreign students. The most popular herbal medicine departments tend to be gastroenterology, gynecology, and internal medicine. In these clinics it is common for students to witness 30 – 40 patients being treated in three hours.
Besides the clinical rounds the tour will offer 20 hours of lectures over the two-week period. During the first week of the event the lectures will focus on channel therapy and how to use a meridian based approach in syndrome differentiation. The material in the lectures will be based on the book and online acupuncture course: Meridian Circuit Systems.
In addition to offering China tours, the Integrative Healing Society also offers online acupuncture courses for professionals of Chinese medicine. For more information about the news contained in this report visit: www.ihsociety.com
