About the Seminars


• California Acupuncture Board CEU provider 142
• NCCAOM PDA provider 214 
Since 2002, Snow Lotus Seminars has been a provider of professional continuing education for health-care practitioners, including acupuncturists, medical herbalists, nurses, massage therapists and other practitioners in the area of complementary health care.

Directed by Peter Holmes LAc, MH, the seminars offered combine the fields of herbal medicine, essential oil medicine and acupuncture. They address current issues in contemporary health care using the methodology of integrating energetic medicine with contemporary functional medicine. Their focus is clinical practice based on a combination of treatment experience and research. The discussions of treatment usually center on essential oil and herbal remedies, acupuncture points and secondarily on nutrition. 

Peter brings to his programs over 35 years of research, clinical practice and teaching experience. One of the earliest pioneers in the use of Western herbs and essential oils in Oriental Medicine, he has offered his ground-breaking seminars, Using Essential Oils in Chinese Medicine and The Energetics of Western Herbs since 1994.

Since 2010, Peter Holmes and Tiffany Pollard have together developed specific oil-to-point protocols for energetic rebalancing treatment without the use of needles. Both practitioners now offer Aroma Acupoint TherapyTM seminars for acupuncturists, bodyworkers and other practitioners working hands-on. This is an interactive workshop that offers the fruits of their ongoing clinical experience in this highly effective and exciting new treatment modality. 
Please check back often as new events in different locations are added regularly.
