4, 1 Hour Classes and Handouts
In this four part introduction we will cover how to take your herbal knowledge and begin to transfer it to your acupuncture and moxibustion treatment. We will do this covering some very key formulas in the Shang Han Lun: Gui Zhi Tang, Ge Geng Tang, Ma Huang Tang, and Da Qing Long Tang. We will cover these basic formulas in a visible method and discuss how to take your acupuncture and moxibustion and apply it according to the ancient knowledge contained within this volume.
I am also excited to present the differences between Kampo herbal medicine and TCM, about my lineage of acupuncture, Iyashi No Michi, and how thats styles understanding of the Mechanism of Disease can vastly improve your understanding of herbs. Finally, we will learn the key aspect to transferring your herbal knowledge, mentorship, can be the final piece in truly elevating your practice in the clinic, getting better results with your clientele, and have a deeper and more palpable understanding of the application of herbal medicine into your acupuncture and moxibustion practice.

I have helped countless acupuncturists through mentorship and tried and true methods to get better results with every needle and cone of moxa and have confidence in their treatment approach and application.
After years of coordinating and translating for international acupuncturists learning Japanese acupuncture, I noticed a strong trend: Acupuncturists, trained outside of Japan, spend over $10,000 and decades just trying to learn Japanese style treatment.
The problem is that most never really create a strong foundation for that knowledge, and they very rarely, if ever, have a mentor to shape their learning. I started ShinKyu University to change all that.
I was very fortunate in my education. I have had excellent teachers and a community who has guided me, even before I entered acupuncture school. I still am involved with my study group in Japan, Iyashi No Michi, and have a mentor to ask questions. To repay my teachers' teachings, I have decided to fill in the gaps of the TCM education and create a lifetime mentorship and membership program called: ShinKyu University.
Outside of my professional life of running a pediatric and perinatal focused clinic, BumbleBee AcuTherapy and teaching via ShinKyu University, I am also I mom of four amazing kids and love riding my mustang, Apollo, whitewater kayaking, and traveling the world.
