This course is approved for Professional Enhancement Coursework with the NCCAOM. This is not an herbal course even though herbs are used in this modality. NCCAOM regulations doesn't allow us to advise on western herbs even though these are commonly used in this modality. 

This is a beginner certification introducing you to the history of this modality and how it's used in our medicine as well as all around the world. The Clinical Applications portion of this course is intended for you to use our clinical methodology, screen for any cautions or contraindications and start working with clients.
