About the Instructor:

"I highly recommend Richard Kwanís iAcupuncture workshop to any practitioner wishing to improve their  clinical efficiency. There is a tremendous amount of information distilled from Richardís studies under Young Wei Chieh, Richard Tan, Tak Tsurusaki and others. I left feeling like I had studied under many masters in two days. You are taught how to apply channel theory in a way that is sadly lacking in typical schooling, how to zero in on the most effective points in those channels through palpitation and then see immediate results verified by the patient and your own follow up palpitation of pulse and channels. Richardís teaching style is relaxed, entertaining and very informative. I look forward to having the opportunity to take future seminars with him to explore his theories on the emotions / spirit and his painless advanced needle techniques."
- Brendan Dolan, SSC 2nd year acupuncture student

"It is rare to find an acupuncture mentor who not only achieves remarkable clinical results before your eyes, but who shares his immense knowledge with clarity, passion and kindness. I have had the privilege of studying under Richard Kwan both in the classroom, and in his actual clinical practice. He absorbs, integrates, and applies the wisdom of various acupuncture masters, blending the best of their approaches into his own unique style. The astounding effectiveness of his diagnosis, palpation, and needling must be seen to be believed. Richard is an incredible healer and teacher." - -- - Pauline Hwang, GEN-R.Ac
