INTRODUCTION TO CHINESE MEDICINE AND BODY WORK
Join Dr. Stuart S. Shipe, R.Ph, D.O.M., an acupuncture physician, Chinese herbalist and registered pharmacist, for a full day introductory program devoted to exploring the ancient arts of Traditional Chinese Medicine as practiced in China. We recommend taking the Advanced course on Sunday where Dr. Shipe goes into treatment plans and diagnostics, but it's not required. Add a whole new dimension to your massage practice by incorporating the techniques in this program! The presentation will be in lecture and hands on format. You will learn:
- meridian theory
- tuina massage
- gua sha
- rejuvenating qi gong exercises to keep your body healthy and strong.
You will earn 16 hours of credit for the one day program and take valuable techniques home at the end of the day that can be used immediately to boost your success in clinical practice. The information presented is constantly updated to provide the latest in evidence based medicine. We strongly advise you to continue on and take the Advanced Chinese Bodywork course on Sunday.
