☞ Due to COVID, we began offering online classes as part of the SMAC Program. By offering these live online, and now recorded, webinars, our goal is to provide you with the tools to help support your practice from the comfort of your own home, on your own time, and with the ability to use these recordings as a study tool! These classes also prepare you for our live, in person only practical classes, which we are starting back up Fall 2021! All Module III: The Lower Extremity and Module IV: The Neck, Shoulder & Upper Extremity classes, including those offered as live webinars, will be offered as live, in person seminars starting this November 2021 at the Eastern School of Acupuncture in NJ. For students who have or plan on taking all offered online webinars, the only live, in-person classes you will still need to earn you C.SMA are the Assessment & Treatment of Injuries classes offered through Modules II, III and IV and the Huatuojiaji class offered in Module I. Please visit the SMAC registration page for details. Recordings of the live online webinars for Modules III and IV, which also count toward your certification, will be available soon through Lhasa OMS!!!.
