  1. Hi,

    I need to take a Tai Chi class (equivalent to ~22.5 hours). Do you offer this class? How would I register to take this class if I am not a student there?
    Thank you!

  2. Hi Jason,
    Please see the following list
    List of textbooks —– TCM program

    I. The first year:

    2. A Manual of Acupuncture, by Peter Deadman (for 2nd and 3rd year too)
    3. Advanced Chinese Acupuncture Therapy, by Ganglin Yin (for 2nd and 3rd year too)

    You can get the above textbooks from http://www.amazon.com (in USA), or http://www.amazon.ca (in Canada). Usually, the price in http://www.amazon.com is cheaper than http://www.amazon.ca

  3. I can’t open the possibly relevant window in your website to find out about the tuition fees. I would also like to know whether successful graduation from your acupuncture program would make one eligible to take the American accreditation exam.

  4. Greate pieces. Keep writing such kind of information on your site.
