The Center for Professional Education was developed to bridge the gap between Asian and holistic medicine and western, conventional healthcare by offering a wide variety of affordable training in Asian and other holistic topics. With a special offering of continuing education for acupuncturists, nurses and other healthcare providers, many of these classes are also open to the public for their own interest and education.

New Patient Referral Program

This program encourages our existing patients to refer new patients to our community clinic. For every new patient an existing patient refers, the referring patient will receive one free acupuncture treatment. The new patient will be on their way to optimal health. It's a win-win situation!

Be sure new patient informs the front desk of who referred them.

Herbal Formula Spotlight: Gui Pi Tang
Gui Pi Tang

Starting a new school year can lead to an increased demand on the body's physical and mental functions.  Insomnia, memory loss, or anxiety due to overwork or too much studying is not uncommon among working adults and full time students.  The herbal formula Gui Pi Tang is used for amnesia, tiredness and poor appetite experienced by hard-working professionals and students and can also help improve memory and focus.  With its chief ingredient ginseng, this formula also strengthens the spleen and the heart, nourishes blood and qi, and calms the mind.  It's ideal for any busy lifestyle struggling to maintain balance between work, school and personal life. 


To see if Gui Pi Tang would be beneficial to you, call PIHMA's clinic today at (602) 274-1885 for an herbal consultation. Because everyone is different herbal products are sold only after consultation with an herbal intern.
