“I have to tell you that there isn’t a week goes by that I am not appreciative for the exceptional teachings. I am based in a Physio Clinic, so I get my fair share of back injuries, but each week someone with an unusual affliction will roll into my office and it is then that I am most grateful for you. When simple diet changes can help an insomniac sleep, being able to help a woman get pregnant and then deal with that pregnancy, head treatments for my M.S. patient or grape seeds for stomach issues. The cupping, the moxa, the Microsystems, the shiatsu, Chinese nutrition, all coming together to support my acupuncture treatments, that is what I think separates you, and your school. I just want you to know that on a regular basis I thank you, and your teachers for setting the bar high.”

“I am a graduate of the Clinical Herbalist program and had such a full and enriching learning experience during my studies here at ITM. The program encompasses all the important elements to develop an understanding of health, wellness, and the knowledge of herbal medicine one should expect. However, ITM's delivery of teaching with care, compassion, and experience thoroughly exceeded my expectations. I am forever grateful for my time here where I was supported in developing my understanding and love of herbal medicine. I highly recommend ITM to those inspired to learn from a collection of amazing and caring individuals with a wealth of knowledge to share.”

— Alan Tam, THM Graduate

“I am a graduate of the contemplative end of life care program at The Institute of Traditonal medicine. This course changed my life. As a palliative nurse for over 20 years - I was never offering the level of care that my patients needed. This course changed everything. Loved the teachers and organizers. Take this training. You will change and your patients will thank you!!!! There is nothing as comprehensive in end of life care out there. Not in hospitals or hospices. So grateful. Thank you itm!!!!”

—Elina Stott, CEOLC Graduate
