Chinese Periocular Acupuncture (CPA) was created by Dr. Peng Jing Shan in 1970. It has been developed and promoted by Dr. Hoy Ping Hee Chan, OMD, L.Ac. in Seattle, WA. Years of clinical experiences have proved that CPA is considered one of excellent TCM diagnostic and treatment methods.  With intensive and rich clinic records of patient care, YM Chen, L.Ac. will share his knowledge and clinical experiences with acupuncturists throughout the US. and  the state. This course will review intensively about eye ocuzones and its diagnostic and treatment specification and indication. Morning session will focus on CPA for neuromuscular medicine and afternoon session will focus on CPA for internal medicine, including common ocular dysfunctions and ocular melanoma.

CPR re-certification ( 4PDA points) will be conducted after the CCPA course.
