We are pleased to announce that the 8th International Symposium of Auriculotherapy will be held on May 8, 9, and 10, 2014 at the Johns Hopkins University Campus located in Rockville, Maryland outside of Washington, DC. Historically, this Symposium was first organized by the French Lyon Group of Medical Studies (GLEM), Lyon, France. It was created in 1965 by Doctor Paul Nogier (1908-1996), a well-known Lyon physician who concentrated his life’s work on the development of auriculotherapy and auriculomedicine. The current President of GLEM is Dr. Raphael Nogier continuing the ideas and knowledge of the late Dr. Paul Nogier. At the VIIth International Symposium of Auriculotherapy held in Lyon, France in June 2012, members of the Symposium agreed that Dr. Richard C. Niemtzow, MD, PhD, MPH should be the President and Organizer of the next Symposium, which will be held in the United States in 2014.
This is the Symposium you have been waiting for. For those of you with sweaty, shaking hands having never practiced auriclotherapy, we will have a pre-symposium boot camp to hone your clinical skills on May 7, 2014.
No more days of tedious lectures while you strain to understand the speaker. Instead a 3 day package of practical bread-and-butter clinical expositions guaranteed to get your Qi flowing. On Day 1, world experts will dazzle you with awe-inspiring clinical auriculotherapy updates from around the world; learn which techniques are new and effective and which are now outdated. Then spend Day 2 and Day 3 with world experts practicing and learning auriculotherapy in workshops designed for practical performance-oriented action. When you leave the Symposium you will be eager to use your newly learned skills on challenging patients and expand your clinical practice.
