2022 – 2023 Calendar


We taught our first sports acupuncture seminar in North America in 1986, and for almost 40 years since my staff and I have instructed and mentored practitioners in this specialty profession. Our mission has been simple: we offer small group mentorship-style courses and systematically instruct how to diagnose, assess, and treat sports injury and pain. We offer one-on-one direct supervision of all the treatments and techniques that we teach. And we prepare practitioners to integrate anatomical-based acupuncture with one's prior TCM training. All the while trying to present common pain syndromes with relatively simple and definitive treatment plans. Our goal is to guide you to feel more confident and comfortable in the clinic. We invite you to join our Acupuncture Sports Medicine community.
