An ICAOM Experience

The very first semester at ICAOM, Randy Otaka, the instructor for the beginning Acu-Point class, assigned the students a paper.  This paper was to detail the reasons that the students had decided to study acupuncture.

From time to time, throughout the semester, students would read their papers to the entire class.  A woman from Vietnam reported that she had worked in a facility in her country where acupuncture was a primary treatment technique.  After seeing what Chinese medicine did for so many, she wanted to develop the knowledge and skills that would enable her to have such an effect on others. full article
