In these times of change and transition, practitioners are looking for means to treat patients with virtual medicine. Due to the absence of pulse diagnostic and channel palpation in virtual medicine, people are searching for ways to properly diagnose patients. CT is a veteran in telemedicine and will discuss how he utilizes facial diagnosis for conducting an exam.

Facial features, colors, and markings relate to the emotional and physical state of the body. Facial diagnostic signs provide great insight into a person’s constitution and disease patterns which give the practitioner an accurate understanding of the body physiology and pathology.

In this introductory 2-hour course, CT Holman teaches facial diagnosis for telemedicine. He describes how to read the different aspects on the face by using ancient Chinese diagnostics and teaches how to understand the state of each organ system by reading the various colors and features on the face. These signs give the practitioner tools to effectively diagnose patients via telemedicine.
CT Holman teaches internationally and authored the textbooks, Treating Emotional Trauma with Chinese Medicine and Shamanism in Chinese Medicine. With over 20 years practicing Chinese medicine, he operates a busy general family practice in Oregon, USA. He trained with several leading teachers in China and the USA. To emphasize the effectiveness of music in medical treatments, he recorded and produced a CD/MP3 titled Resonating Vitality – Chinese Medicine Drum Treatments. CT has several CEU approved video courses available on his website:

Dear colleagues,

Thank you so much to Mori West for sharing her knowledge and expertise with us around telehealth coding and billing!  Thanks as well to the attendees and the OAA board members for helping make this happen.  We had around 100 attendees for this Zoom webinar and it seemed well received.  Please also check your email for our telemedicine and other COVID-19 guidelines for use during this trying time and beyond!   I'm continually inspired and humbled by the support this community shows for one another. 

Please find below both the video recording and the "cheat sheet" from Mori which encapsulates her slide presentation so that you don't have to watch the whole thing to get the high points.  If you did watch live, please fill out our evaluation form .

Thanks again, and may this email find you in health and safety.

We would like to thank Dr. Fruehauf, NUNM, our OAA volunteers (and employee!), and you, the attendees!  Here's the decent recording of the excellent presentation Dr. Fruehauf gave.  

It's a little rough due to some technical difficulties we experienced, and we're sorry about that!  We think it works in the recording for the most part and we appreciate your patience with our learning curve and some technical hurdles.  

Speaking of technical difficulties, many of you were unable to log into the "meeting" at first because of our former attendee cap of 100.  We paid extra to Zoom to up our limit to 500 several days in advance.  We thought that would be the end of it, but of course that wasn't to be.  Our excellent administrative assistant Erin jumped in to help us change some settings which it turned out needed to be changed to allow our 500 attendee limit to become a reality.  It seems as if Zoom expected we would know that innately.  We signed up well over 200 registrants and at the peak got over 150 in the "room."  We're extra sorry for those that couldn't attend the meeting as it was cast live, but the consolation prize is this video.

Please forgive my brief introduction as well.  I tried several times to do an introduction before I actually hit record, and lost connection several times over a two or three minute period due to our connection issues!  Hopefully our technical difficulties are now forever done.  

Thanks for your patience with us and support of one another and the Oregon Association of Acupuncturists.
