Drew DiVittorio, Richard Anton Diaz and Jessica Mullins
This 2-part yearlong professional training will introduce you to classical Chinese Herbal Medicine, Oriental Dietetics and the Taoist Healing Arts. Additionally, you will be certified as a Traditional Chinese Healing Arts Health Coach. Learn to incorporate herbs, healing foods, Tai Chi, QiQong, and healing meditations into your clinical practice and everyday life.
This program includes academic, online and clinical training on how to diagnose clients/yourself and use healing foods and herbal treatments. The approach used will help to de-mystify Chinese Herbalism, Oriental Dietetics and healing Taoist practices for the western practitioner and give a working knowledge of terminology and protocols that can be successfully applied to your practice as well as improve your own overall health.
Recommended for laypersons, medical professionals, clinicians, nutritionists, trainers, counselors, body workers, therapists and more.
T’ai Chi will be practiced at every class.
