What Students Say About Dr. Montakab

His system is elaborated and differentiates patterns so that you can really treat individual complaints. Very entertaining and instructive
– Hardya, on Acupuncture for Insomnia: Sleep and Dreams in Chinese Medicine

Wonderfully presented and very very informative. Dr. Montakab addresses and answers issues and questions that have come up in my 20 years of working in the Chinese Medicine world that weren’t touched upon in my initial TCM training. As you grow as a practitioner in TCM/CCM you continually become informed about what you don’t know and hence you are always growing as you seek the answers. Dr. Montakab’s very comprehensive lectures make this process enjoyable and rewarding.

– Pamela Moore, on Traumatic Stress: Management of Physical & Psychological Trauma with Acupuncture
