Written by teachers for teachers, Sand to Sky provides practical and experiential
insights to challenge tradition and to focus on creative and diverse approaches
to education. For anyone interested in Complementary Medicine, these texts
offer a lively question-and-answer format to highlight the personalities and
methodologies of international teachers of Acupuncture, Asian Bodywork
Therapy, Chinese Herbs, Biomedicine, therapist/patient interaction skills, and
the psychosocial aspects of clinical training.
Journey with teachers who use theatrical methods such as blue wigs, music,
rhymes, dance steps, and tongue dyes to bring abstract Chinese Medical theory
to life, or who take students into the Alaskan wilderness for a crash course in the
Five Elements. Listen to a range of creative voices, from those who documented
the medical discoveries of early Chinese physicians to those who pioneered
emergency treatments for rescue workers in New York City post-9/11.
Their stories form a colorfully inventive mosaic spanning the United States,
Europe, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Canada, China, and Japan. Sand to
Sky offers a prompt for future discussions to train the next generation of
practitioners and teachers.
