Classical Five-Element Acupuncture Graduate Seminar
Perfecting the Art



On October 25-26, The Institute launched a new clinical consultation graduate program: "Perfecting the Art." Professor Neil R. Gumenick and Dr. Eliot Ivanhoe led two days of clinical consultations, point location, Spirits of the Points, and treatment planning. Each day, five patients were examined, diagnosed, and treated. Participants had opportunities to interview and receive feedback on their diagnostic skills, pulse taking, and treatment planning. Future presentations of the course will be open to all graduates of Five-Element schools and Programs.

Excellent. Each patient treatment was discussed in depth and treatment plans explained beautifully. Everyone was given opportunity to be thoroughly involved every step of the way. This weekend was such an important part of maintaining and honing our skills
