Annual Three Day In Person Holiday Training Course

(scroll to the bottom of the page for location, lodging and venue details!)

The annual, family friendly holiday training trip in Italy!

July 24-26, Finale Ligure, Italy (Teacher Training July 22-23)

Whether you have been with us for years and are looking to get corrections and feedback; have taken training courses with us and want to solidify the skills you have already learned; or have been learning online and now ready to begin training in person, summits are the place to be. Morning sessions focus on acupuncture training to safely yet effectively needle challenging parts of the body; afternoon sessions involve a deep dive into treating specific conditions, covering theory, strategy, acupuncture and herbal protocols, and, of course, partnered practice.

Why are Summits the most important course to take? At Summits, you will meet senior practitioners who have successfully integrated Tangible Acupuncture into their practices and network with colleagues as eager as you to return this medicine to a clinically focused, results based practice like it used to be.

Why are holiday summits the most fun? We bring children and create activities for them while we train; we all swim in the sea after class ends; we share dinners together en famille; and we eat ridiculous amounts of gelati!

Come train, practice, learn and spend time with the growing community of practitioners seeking a more tangible level of practice for their patients. Come have a holiday. Come build a personal relationship with the teachers.
