NYCAVMA Annual Conference
Menla Mountain, Phoenicia, NY
Oct. 7-11, 2020
Advanced Acupuncture with Linda Boggie. Topic: The Channel of Acupuncture – exploring the road maps of development and sustenance for the individual.
When learning TCM we are overwhelmed with the language and concepts of Chinese medical theory and philosophy. It is enough to try and grasp one system of channels – the Primary channels – and understand the effects that acupuncture can have throughout the body through these 12 channels. We may also learn about the Du Mai and the Ren Mai, but the rest….not so much.
However, there are five other “channel” systems that were discussed in classical acupuncture texts. We will explore these channels through lectures given by Linda Boggie, DVM, a student of Jeffrey Yuen. Through intellectual discussion and practical applications, we will explore the channel systems which provide the road maps for the development and sustenance of an individual; physical and mental, human and animal. They provide understanding of how an individual may respond to challenges in life, be they internal or external; in other words, the progression of disease and possible pathways to resolve pathology. Understanding the different channel systems is an invitation to explore one’s self, and as we gain a greater understanding of self we develop a greater awareness in using acupuncture as a therapeutic healing modality.
This seminar offers 20.5 hours NYS CE – IVAS CE pending.

A Course on Quantum Healing
Science has evolved beyond the limited perspective of materialism, making it now possible to condense and integrate many of the different empirical healing rituals of history into one comprehensive, logically congruent, and simple technology of healing. The scientific approach makes the practice of holistic medicine far simpler and easier than you ever imagined.
This is an intensive four day course in a rural Idaho setting for individuals and/or very small groups.
Contact Dr. Ronald Hamm for details and to schedule a class.
