Bringing Healing Home: Enlisting Feng Shui to Support your Acupuncture Practice
Enrich your acupuncture practice through the principles and practice of Feng Shui. One of the eight limbs of traditional Chinese medicine, Feng Shui brings your Chinese medicine home, literally. Learn the important aspects of how to apply this ancient practice to your own spaces, how to make your self-care more robust, and how to add depth to your healing recommendations for your clients.

The Legacy of Edith Davis
Edith Davis’ passion and persistence helped shape the practice of acupuncture and Chinese medicine in Minnesota as we know it today. She was one of the founders of the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Association of Minnesota.
Davis also started the Minnesota Institute of Acupuncture and Herbal Studies, which merged with Northwestern Health Sciences University in 1999 to become the Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine program in the College of Health and Wellness. The program has earned national accreditation and the ability to award master's degrees.
Her legacy at Northwestern will live on in the dispensary that bears her name – the Edith Davis Herbal Dispensary.
