Such an amazing course! Dr Kalish knows his subject so well, and is so great at communicating it - which is super important. It was all clinically relevant, and I left with things that I can start applying tomorrow. He was also great about answering questions and doing review. I would definitely recommend this course, and I look forward to more with him. ~Elizabeth

Course Reviews

This was a really great course. I think Dan got a barrage of questions and I hope he knows how thankful we are as a group of acupuncturists that he was willing to share a huge amount of info with us over a weekend that was affordable (most of us will not be able to attend his $9000 course). That was very gracious of him ~ JILL

When will this course be available again?
