Dr. Zev Myerowitz and the IACA would like to personally thank Dr. Richard Yennie for his significant influence in lighting his fire in pursuing his constant search for knowledge.
Dr. Zev started attending classes with Dr. Yennie in 1978, first at Parker Seminars and then in Kansas City.Dr. Yennie stated even back then to all of us "That we should learn all we can, from every teacher we can and share all we can".
Over the last 35 years Dr. Zev Did just that. Having studied under Dr. Yennie first and foremost, then Miki Shima, Ted Kaptchuk, Giovanni Macioca, Kiiko Matsumoto, Bob Flaws, Jake Fratkin, Dana Price, Jeff Nagel, Grand Master Share K. Lew, Dr. Wei-Chieh Young (Master Tong's Acupuncture), Terry Oleson, Ralph Dale, Kinyon Kim, Robert Chu, Chiao Lee, Misha Cohen, Will Morris, Elizabeth Wakefield,  Marilyn Allen, Michael Tierra, Dan Bensky,Gene Bruno, Z'ev Rosenberg, Amy Sear, Hwang Deok-Sang, Kim Yong-Suk,Jeffrey Yuen,Susan Johnson, Matt Callison, Misha Cohen and many more, each teaching a different perspective of Oriental Medicine. In reaching the goal of teaching as many forms of OM as possible under one roof, IACA was then formed!
It was due to Dr. Yennie and creating the path that all of this took form. Thank you Richard!
With The Tao!

The International Academy of Chiropractic Acupuncture was formed to perpetuate and protect the Chiropractic profession and Chiropractic Acupuncture along with states rights as a seperate and distinct branch of the healing arts. The IACA will promote Chiropractic Acupuncture with all of its natural resources. Central to the IACA purpose is the continued analysis, investigation, research, teaching and unification af "ALL" Chiropractic Acupuncturist's.
We want to insure that all Chiropractic Acupuncturists understand the relationships in all clinical aspects of the honorable art of meridian healing and its relationship to the vertebral subluxation complex (VCS) and the effects on the human body, its nervous system, and all channels and body parts. The intent of the IACA is the complete unification of all Chiropractors who practice Chiropractic Acupuncture under the IACA to recognize and welcome all teaching methods of Chiropractic Acupuncture from all colleges, schools, master instructors, national organizations and accrediting agencies.

We offer Basic 100 Hour, Advanced 200 Hour and Graduate 300 hour programs. All of our classes require total in class, hands on training as required in acupuncture colleges. We do not offer any type of ONLINE TRAINING.

It is our school's philosophy that in order to be fully qualified as a Doctor of Chiropractic who also renders care in the field of Oriental Medicine, he or she must complete 300 hours of in class education including personal and individual hands on training and supervised clinical training and experience. The State of Maine Board of Chiropractic Examiners agrees with this philosophy and requires 200 hours of hands on in classroom training for certification. The second hundred hours of training must also be advanced level training and not a repeat of the basic 100 hour course.

Our classes are taught in monthly 25 Hour Modules which enables the doctor/student to achieve Diplomate status in one year! Our program is NBCE preparatory and recognized for qualifying and sitting the ACA Council of Chiropractic Acupuncture Examination.
