"Classical Herbal Supplements for the Modern World"




Course Overview

Su Wen Press is delighted to offer qualified UK acupuncturists and herbalists a comprehensive CPD training course on the Su Wen Herbs supplements, created by Giovanni Maciocia®, C.Ac (Nanjing), World Renowned Author, Acupuncturist and Herbalist, based on his 39 years of clinical experience and research. The course will cover how the formulas can be integrated into clinical practice offering a new skill set to your patients. This hands-on material can broaden your scope of the therapeutic range, as acupuncture and herbal supplements work complementary, improving results in chronic and acute cases.

Petra Tjeertes, LAc, and Phytotherapist will discuss how practitioners can address the manifestations and/or the root with both herbal supplements and acupuncture and will cover other clinical situations that practitioners encounter, to discover practical solutions where herbal supplements may help.

Our practical course will cover formula strategies, compositions, and pairing. It will provide a holistic overview of the Su Wen Herbs supplements, covering in-depth the families of formulae and each of the 95 formulas that make up The Three Treasures®, Women’s Treasure®, and The Little Treasures® lines. Upon completion of the course, practitioners will be equipped with the necessary tools and knowledge to safely use the Su Wen Herbs supplements in practice.
