Instructor: Micky Lollar - The combination of philosophy and science known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a practice that has evolved over 3000 years. Predating the third century B.C. Chinese introductory work The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, the exotic health practices continue today as a complimentary alternative medicine, treating both chronic and acute illnesses around the world. Utilizing herbs, acupuncture, massage (Tui Na), exercise (Qigong and Tai Chi), and nutrition, TCM has never been so popular or pertinent. In this extensive course, participants will study the history, mysterious tenets, methods of diagnosis, and approaches to treatment of TCM, utilizing PowerPoint, numerous hand-outs, botanical examples, and ethnological artifacts. In-depth supplemental studies will include the meridians, herbs, exercise, aromatherapy, and Feng Shui.

NOTE: The information within this course is NOT intended to be taken as a replacement for medical advice from a medical professional.
