Foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine

This is a 2-part class introducing the Basic Theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It will be geared for beginners but will also provide useful information to professionals of all healing backgrounds.

I encourage those who are interested, to attend both classes to insure a more in depth understanding of this material. Upon completion of these classes, students will have greater understanding of themselves, each other and the way the internal and external environments influence our mental, emotional and physical health.
