The Fundamentals of Chinese Medicine Study Group
This small study group meets several times a month in Northampton, MA with Leta Herman. Each session, we will cover some basic concepts such as meridians and point location, the functions of each meridian system, general indications for points, and much more. We will focus on teaching the basics of Chinese Medicine for yourself, your practice, or in preparation for the Master Alchemy Program or the Master Alchemy Healers Program if you don't have a background in Chinese Medicine. 

This study group was designed by Leta & Jaye for three purposes. 
  • Many of our Cupping and Gua Sha students and alternative healers are interested in adding Chinese Medicine and Acupressure to their already existing massage or energywork practice, this class would be an AWESOME addition to anyone's healing toolkit!
  • Another reason is to teach some basics that a person would need to know about Chinese Medicine in order to study Alchemical Healing. Those who complete this class will be eligible to apply to study in our Alchemical Healing program with the Alchemy Learning Center. 
  • Lifelong learners and many Alchemy Healing Center clients have enjoyed learning points and techniques that can help themselves and their families. This class will provide a solid foundation of knowledge for anyone who enjoys self-healing and on-going care for their families.

Study with Leta ... 

Leta created this study group as a prerequisite for Alchemy studies with her for non-Chinese Medicine practitioners. If you are not currently an acupuncturist and wish to study Alchemy with Leta, this class was created for you!

You may want to join this study group to prepare to study Alchemy. Leta has been practicing for over 20 years and has developed a unique Alchemy practice that includes the Nine Stages of Alchemy, the Thirteen Ghost Points, the Heart Pains treatment, the Starry Sky Points, the Stuck Grieving treatments and the Internal and External Dragons. 

Learn to maintain your own health on a regular basis. Learn to clear your own blocks, balance the left and right sides of your body, and learn to monitor your own pulses and tongue diagnosis. These are techniques Leta uses on herself everyday for optimal health and teaches clients and students all the time. In addition, really delve into understanding the meridians on your own body and on your clients.

Adding Chinese Medicine concepts to make your practice, could make your practice more robust and increase your value to your clients.
