I have been practicing acupuncture for 26 years and have probably had 2 major epiphanies in that time, where the discoveries had profound effects on my treatment outcomes. The last 19 years I have worked in a hospital setting, researching and utilizing electroacupuncture for treating painful conditions. I like to think I have attained a high level of understanding and proficiency at optimizing its use for pain relief. But this past weekend, I attended the EAM Foundation and Advanced Seminar courses, and a door was opened into the future of what acupuncture should/will one day look like. Each of the 4 days I attended provided what I would consider an epiphany of its own. I was blown away. If you want to advance your skills, and use this medicine in new, cutting- edge ways that will greatly elevate your level of care, I highly recommend taking this course. Jeremy is a master at integrating TCM with Western physiology and research, and present methodologies that can work with whatever practice style you currently use. The best money I have ever spent on post graduate education!
