Traditional Chinese Healing Arts: Health Coach Certification Training is a year-long, 2-part professional certification focusing on classical Chinese Herbal Medicine, Oriental Dietetics and the Taoist Healing Arts. After completing the training, students will be certified as a Traditional Chinese Healing Arts Health Coach and a Tai Chi Instructor.

This interactive online training series is designed to teach students how to diagnose and treat patient / client symptoms by nourishing the body with specially prepared plants, herbal extracts, animal extracts, minerals and more. Part I, a 5-month series, focuses on The Art of Healing with Food, while Part II, a 7-month series, focuses on The Art of Healing with Herbal Medicine.

Learn to incorporate herbs, healing foods, Tai Chi, QiGong and healing meditations into your clinical practice and everyday life.
