For Five Element Practitioners

Five Element Clinical Consultation Days

February 11, 2024, 9 am-5 pm, 7 PDAs (PE-AT); $225 Full day/$140 half day.                       June 9, 2024, 9 am-5 pm, 7 PDAs (PE-AT); $225 Full day/$140 half day

The Consultation Clinics support each practitioner's development in the clinical application of Five Element Acupuncture. The emphasis is on CSOE, clinical assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning. Practitioners bring patients who are not progressing as they would expect. We interview the patient in a treatment room with 8 observers, discuss, and provide feedback. The patient is treated, and we observe the change. Follow-up treatment plans are provided to practitioners. Observers get hands-on experience with pulses, color, sound, odor, and emotion. We see 4 patients/day. Be affirmed in one's skill set and met at a new growing edge. We provide a learning environment that supports being a beginner regardless of your experience level.
