Workshops in Maui

Welcome to Maui! 

​Maui Kids Acupuncture hosts workshops in various topics for acupuncturists, licensed massage therapists, physical therapists, and other heath care providers. We are committed to bringing seasoned and competent teachers from Japan and the US. 

The workshops will be NCCAOM approved for CEUs. Workshops with Japanese teachers will be translated. 

​The workshops usually will be held in Paia or Makawao (upcountry). We highly recommend you to book flight, lodging, and rental car far in advance to avoid any streess or troubles and to save $ as much as possible. We will be happy to offer suggestions.
