The Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences (Academy) in Oakland, California is proud to bring back the ever-popular, Battlefield Acupuncture auricular therapy protocol in a hands-on, live class on March 25-26, 2023. After enduring over two years of pandemic lockdown and online courses, the administrators at the Academy are keen to bring back this popular series.
Battlefield Acupuncture is an Auricular Therapy (Ear acupuncture) protocol that was invented by Dr. Richard Niemtzow MD in 2001. He came up with the name Battlefield Acupuncture for the simple reason that it could be used on the battlefield when it was not advisable or desirable to use Western pain medications such as narcotics. The protocol uses up to 5 specific points on each ear and employs a specific type of auriculotherapy needle. It is used to treat all types of pain. It was so effective in the military that it was taught to civilians to use for non-military patients. Its popularity has taken off exponentially since its inception.
The seminar consists of two days that are taught by John Howard, L.Ac., Dipl. Ac. He did a five-year fellowship with the protocol inventor before he started teaching the seminar with and without Dr. Niemtzow. John Howard has taught this seminar for close to 15 years both in the United States and internationally. The two-day seminar is approved by NCCAOM for 16 PDAs and has always been approved by the California Acupuncture Board for 16 California CEUs, CAB Category 1 CEUs for Provider #1115, Auriculotherapy Seminars, 240-413-9211. For the past 14+ years and to date the seminars have been sponsored by Lhasa OMS. This includes providing students with an abundance of specific auriculotherapy needles used for this protocol.
