Learn about palmar diagnosis and see how it works.

Please note that this seminar is not designed to teach you palmar diagnosis in just 4 days. It is necessary to have a very high level of mastery of Tung acupuncture to practice this type of diagnosis, which is the culmination of the mastery of Tung acupuncture. Only a handful of practitioners, including Calvin Chien, practice it every day. 

Palmar diagnosis will be the subject of a specific program for practitioners who already have a very high level of mastery and experience of Tung acupuncture.  Calvin Chien has been practicing palmar diagnosis daily for over 30 years. He will be able to give you keys and answer all your questions to help you take your first steps in this field. 

A comprehensive clinical practice seminar for fast, effective results:

Calvin Chien is a simple, approachable person. During private class sessions, he will generously share his treatment principles, including Tung acupuncture, combination with the 14 meridians and other acupuncture styles, signature scalp acupuncture... But also Tuina, pharmacopoeia and QI-Gong. 

Each case is unique and requires its own dedicated treatment principle. That's why Calvin Chien has been practicing Tung acupuncture for over 30 years, combining it with the full range of TCM disciplines for effective results. You'll leave with concrete tools and answers to improve the effectiveness of your day-to-day clinical practice.

Start to learn by practicing with the Chien Research Institute!

"This course is 80% practice. The various themes will be mostly covered in workshops and clinical case studies."
