    Orthopedic Sports Acupuncture Series for the Chinese Medicine Practitioner

    Exploring assessment and treatment of common injuries and pain

    Presented by Chad Bong

    The three weekends will be split in to upper extremity, hip and low back, and lower extremity. The classes will focus on orthopedic assessment of injuries, designed to increase the precision of your acupuncture treatments. The treatment aspect of the class will focus mostly on anatomically significant points with practice of how to needle each point. These are interactive classes where you will spend extensive time practicing physical evaluation, needling and other treatment techniques.  

    The classes will be limited to 21 participants!

    Chad Bong holds Masters Degrees in both Oriental Medicine and Exercise Science as well as an 800-hour certification in massage therapy. Combining the knowledge of both Eastern and Western views gives him a unique perspective on how injuries happen and how they can be treated.

    Chad assists Whitfield Reaves in teaching sports medicine acupuncture around the world and is a contributing author in The Acupuncture Handbook for Sports Injuries and Pain

    Maryland Acupuncture Society invites you for a One Day Seminar

     A Day with JACK DANIEL:

     Safety, Ethics, and Extraordinary Fu

    NCCAOM now requires its Diplomates to complete a 2 hour/PDA course in safety (SA) and a 2 hour/PDA course in ethics (ET) every four (4) years for recertification. Taking this course fulfills that requirement.


    1. Morning Presentation: Safety Issues in Oriental Medicine, NCCAOM Course # Pending, Ethics Issues in Oriental Medicine, NCCAOM Course # ACHB 319-109.

    2. Afternoon Presentation: Extraordinary Fu, NCCAOM Course # ACHB 319-057. This course will reveal the comprehensive, rarely detailed particulars of the energetic physiology of The Extraordinary Fu. When Yin/Yang, Wu Hsing, The Five Shen, Zang/Fu, and the Substances are seen to grow out of each other, inseparably, the whole person shows a fullness and texture that is unsurpassed by any other system of medicine. The power that this affords the practitioner of Oriental Medicine is enriching, challenging, and inspiring; rapidly advancing levels of demonstrated ability and confidence.
