The annual, family friendly holiday training trip in Italy!
2024 dates: 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.
Come train, practice, learn and holiday 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.

WHO CAN ATTEND? Please read carefully before purchasing course! This course is only open to LICENSED practitioners in ACTIVE practice using acupuncture to treat patients every week. This particular course is not open to students or hobby practitioners—please attend our many other courses designed for students and new practitioners not yet in full practice. This restriction is to ensure all participants are confident and experienced at needling so that partner work is not about learning technique but about adopting strategies and protocols.
In addition to being licensed practitioners of Chinese medicine in active practice, participants are expected to have attended in person or taken the online version of one or more of the following courses:
It is also strongly urged they have an active Daoyin practice, such as: 100 Days of Pulling Qi
