Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
Aaron Cook, L.Ac
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a 3,000-year-old system of medicine with many applications in the modern world. Based on an assessment of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual condition, the TCM practitioner uses therapies such as acupuncture/acupressure, nutrition, herbs, and exercises such as Tai Chi or Qigong. In 1997, the U.S. National Institutes of Health documented and publicized acupuncture’s safety and efficacy for treating a wide range of conditions. Acupuncture is now covered by many insurers and is used most broadly to relieve pain. In this experiential lecture, you will learn about the art and science of Chinese medicine and acupuncture.
