2018 SEMINARS AND WORKSHOPS


The Acupuncture Sports Medicine Apprenticeship Program
We offer this program on orthopedic and sports acupuncture several times a year. In 2018, The Apprenticeship Program sites will be Paso Robles as well as Oakland, California. This summer's Paso Robles program will feature the small-group format, limited to from six to eight practitioners. The Oakland courses are limited to sixteen practitioners, and its mentorship-style group includes three experienced practitioners to assist Whitfield Reaves with instruction and supervision. All practitioners receive a Certificate of Completion upon conclusion of the 60-hour courses.

The instructional material and treatment techniques are the culmination of over 35 years of experience in sports acupuncture by Whitfield Reaves. We make all efforts to present the material in a manner that makes them clinically relevant and immediately applicable in one's acupuncture practice.
