Instructor: Dr. Huang Huang, PhD (China)
Didactic lectures and practical application (32 PDA/CEU’s): January 5th to 8th, 2018 (9:00am – 6:00pm)
This 4-day weekend is broken up into two main sections.
16 California CEU’s pending for each 2-day component
Days 1-2, January 5th and 6th (16 CEU’s pending)
In days 1-2, Dr. Huang will focus on key formula presentations within 3 formula families: Huang Qi, Fu Zi and Dang Gui. With knowledge of formula presentations from these 3 Key Formula Families, participants will be able to treat a great variety of conditions and patients, always taking into account both patient ‘type’ or ‘constitution’ (Ti Zhi) and disease (Bing). In particular, formulas from these formula families are often indicated in conditions of pain, neuropathy, circulation, kidney disease, thyroid disease, dermatology and gynecology.
Days 3-4, January 7th and 8th (16 CEU’s pending)
In days 3-4, Dr. Huang will focus on common presentations and relevant formulas in the treatment of specific disease categories: dermatological, respiratory and oral/mucosal diseases. Here Dr. Huang will draw from all categories of formula families, to draw a detailed picture of the formula presentations most relevant to these disease categories.
2. Advanced Pediatrics TCM & Sho-Ni-Shin Seminar, Behavioral Disorders
CEU Hours: Category 1, 15 CEUs are APPROVED by the California Acupuncture Board
15 NCCAOM PDAs approved
Instructor: Soma Glick, D.O.M., (NM), L.Ac., CHom.
Didactic lectures and practical application (15 PDA/CEU’s): February 24 – 25, 2018 (8:30am – 5:00pm)
This course is designed as a follow-up to the basic “Treating Children with Oriental Medicine: Healing with Sho-Ni-Shin” course. However, the instructor will introduce and integrate portions of the basic course within the advanced course. We will take time for in-class practice with the sho-ni-shin tools on Saturday to brush up the basic sho-ni-shin techniques introduced in the first course and introduce other techniques specific for calming shen and the nervous system.
This course will cover a wide range of children’s “so-called” behavioral disorders, from hyperactivity, Attention Deficit Disorder and autism as well as anxiety, insomnia and night terrors and see how they affect different age groups, from infants, toddlers, school-age children and teen-agers. It will give participants an understanding of this modern day epidemic from both the Traditional Chinese and Japanese acupuncture systems.
Soma will present real cases from her private practice and will cover in-depth treatment protocols with acupuncture, sho-ni-shin techniques and herbal medicine, as well as take a look at life style and nutritional issues.

3. The Science of Acupuncture
CEU Hours: Category 1, 16 CEUs are Pending by the California Acupuncture Board
Instructor: Dr. John McDonald, PhD, L.Ac.
Didactic lectures (16 CEU’s Pending): April 8th to 9th, 2018 (9:00am – 6:00pm)
This course will explore the nature of the acupuncture channels, from both the Classical (drawing from the Huang Di Nei Jing Ling Shu) and the modern scientific perspectives. Relevant quotes from the Ling Shu will frame the traditional Chinese medical understanding of the classics, and each of the current dominant anatomical substrate theories will be explained and then analyzed to demonstrate which facets of traditional channel theory they can account for, and which they fail to account for.
Dr. McDonald will also explore a strategy of “evidence-based point selection” – data-mining the historical literature to see what the most reliable record of usage for various points is – and contrast this with various theoretical approaches to point selection.
Lastly, Dr. McDonald will cover the current state of acupuncture research, challenges and future directions, and guide application of research in clinical practice, marketing and communication
