Report on the ISSCA 1st Annual Conference in Portland, OR

It was with great pleasure and honour that i was able to attend the International Society for the Study of Classical Acupuncture (ISSCA) first annual conference in Portland, Oregan as a founding member. Set within the very scenic and very green Pittock Bird Sanctuary in Forest Park we listened to some great talks on classical acupuncture and set the foundation for a very specialised acupuncture society.

ISSCA will focus on building the base knowledge of classical acupuncture around the globe through the development of a peer reviewed journal, online forum, annual conference, seminars and a set curriculum to be designed by Dr. Edward Neal and myself. ISSCA's primary goal is the archeological research of classical acupuncture through the landscape of the Huangdi Neijing. We will focus on quality of material rather than on quantity of members.

Our conferences and courses will be held around the globe and i look forward to hosting one of conferences here in Sydney in the near future.

If you are interested in learning more about the society please visit the developing website www.isscaonline.org.
