Wang Le-ting was a mid-20th-century acupuncture phenomenon in China. Widely considered the greatest practitioner of his time, he was fondly named Golden Needle Wang and was often sent the most difficult-to-treat cases. A great innovator and experimenter, Wang created several famous formulas that he used in cycles on his seriously ill patients. This class focuses on several of Wang's formulas and the theory supporting them, and includes examples of how Wang used them in clinical practice.
About Your Instructor:
Honora Wolfe began her studies in alternative health in 1975, becoming a founder and the first director of the Boulder College of Massage Therapy, where she worked full time until the end of 1980. Her son was born in 1981 and she took a break of several years to be a full time "Mom." It was during these stay-at-home years that Honora worked with Bob Flaws to found Blue Poppy Press, the first publication of which came out in 1982.
In 1988, after three trips to China to study tuina medical massage at the Shanghai College of TCM and the completion of her acupuncture training and clinical apprenticeships, Honora passed the NCCAOM exam and began her private clinical practice, which continued until 2001. By then however, Blue Poppy had grown considerably, adding new divisions and product lines as well as several employees. At that point, Bob and Honora decided to focus their energies on translating and publishing medical texts and research from Chinese source materials as well as teaching at seminars and conferences all over the US and Europe. Additionally, Honora continued her clinical practice through the Southwest Acupuncture College Clinic (and still does up to the present).
In addition to her focus of teaching courses on adjunctive therapies such as tuina protocols, bleeding techniques, and moxibustion, in 2003 Honora began a side specialty in practice management and success courses. She continues to write, lecture, and consult on subjects related to “the business-of-acupuncture” and is considered one the foremost inspirational speakers on this subject in our profession.
