Early Bird Prices End February 25th

This year ASVA presents Elementary Aspects of Canonical Chinese Medicine, a course designed for non-herbalists and herbalists alike who wish to develop a more accurate and deeper understanding of the application of clinical herbal medicine. Participants will achieve this objective by exploring the medicine’s original identity and history via in-depth study of classical Chinese texts.

This is a great seminar of non-herbalists or beginning herbalists as it provide the perfect foundational tools that will acquaint you with the history of Chinese herbal medicine and provide you with a greater understanding of the theoretical staples of diagnosis and treatment. 

For advanced herbalist, this is an opportunity to explore the herbs and herbal formulas you have studied with greater application and historical perspective.
