Making Acu-babies: Treatment of Infertility through Application of Classical Principles
Infertility is an increasing problem worldwide. Integration of classical Chinese medical practices with current biomedical procedures can improve outcomes in many of these cases. Oftentimes the application of these Chinese medical classical principles can even prevent the necessity for more invasive and expensive procedures. Bonnie Walker, DC, LAc, and co-founder of JTS will offer this 1-day course on Jung Tao legacy teachings and their intersection with this important topic.
