    Boston Shanghan Lun Series


    Dr. Arnaud Versluys and the Institute of Classics in East Asian Medicine will be launching their flagship East Coast branch in Boston, beginning June 3-4 2017. The complete Diplomate in Canonical Chinese Medicine training spans 17 weekends over the course of 2 years. It is a unique combination of in-depth instruction on the theoretical aspects of Han Dynasty herbal medicine and hands-on transmission of a classical pulse system in a clinical setting. Participants will:

    • Examine the roots of the Shanghan Lun/Jingui Yaolue in earlier Han      Dynasty classics, including the Huangdi Neijing, the Shennong Bencao Jing, and the Yiyin Tangye Jing
    • Receive live clinical training in Tian family pulse diagnosis and formula modification, a system of profound clarity and practicality
    • Learn Fukushin abdominal diagnosis, which evolved in Japan around the use of the same Han Dynasty formulas
    • Explore perspectives on creating acupuncture treatments that dovetail elegantly with classical herbal formulas
    • Develop a high level of diagnostic skill and insight into the treatment of complex diseases

    The training is open both to licensed practitioners and to current Master's students. Each weekend is approved for 16 NCCAOM CEU's. Package deals for the first 8 weekends are currently on sale at, with early bird and ASM member discounts available.

    Dr. Versluys is one of the few Westerners to have received his full medical training in China. He spent a total of twelve years at the Chinese medical universities of Wuhan, Beijing and Chengdu, where he pursued his Bachelor, Master and Doctorate degrees in Chinese medicine. In 1999, Dr. Versluys met Dr. Zeng Rongxiu, under whom he trained in traditional Shanghan Lun discipleship for 13 years.

    Dr. Zeng was the last living disciple of the great Shanghan pulse master Tian Heming. During his long career as an internal medicine doctor in Chengdu, he synthesized a highly effective system of constitutional approaches to chronic illness. He was known for his unrelenting enthusiasm for clinical precision and the healing power of classical herbal formulas. Dr. Zeng passed the leadership of his lineage, his personal writings, and all Tian lineage materials to his main disciple, Dr. Versluys, and the Institute of Classics in East Asian Medicine, where his legacy is now secured for posterity.

    Dr. Versluys and his team of instructors have led trainings in a number of cities across the United States, Europe, and Australia. The Boston branch of ICEAM is the only training slated for the East Coast in the near future, don't miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding of the classics and enhance your clinical efficacy!

    In today’s digital and social media marketing age, using a blurry, poorly lit selfie from your phone as your website or LinkedIn head shot just doesn’t cut it, but how many of us have the time or the resources to book ourselves a professional photoshoot to update our images?

    The ASM has you covered!

    On Sunday June 11th we will be offering mini photoshoots with fabulous Boston photographer Sonya Highfield, and we’ll have professional makeup artist Keyla Guzman of Skin Deep Beauty and Esthetics on site for touch ups and makeup application advice if so desired.

    COST: $125.00 includes 15 minute professional photoshoot, with lighting and against a backdrop, make-up touch ups by professional makeup artist if desired (please note this is NOT a full makeup application, touch ups and fine tuning ONLY) and 2 digital images. Additional images will be available for an extra $25.00 if desired.

    Payment must be made in advance and sessions will be scheduled in advance.

    Cancellations, changes to the schedule and refunds will NOT be available after May 31st. Refunds before May 31 will be accessed a $10 reprocessing fee.
