Amos ZIV

Amos ZIV

After his first encounter with Traditional Chinese Medicine at the age of 18, during Tai Chi classes as a Biology student, Amos ZIv has been striving to integrate western scientific knowledge with classical Chinese energetical paradigms. As a graduate of the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in California he was privileged to study with great teachers and masters of TCM, among them Prof. Wang Ju Yi who later became his acupuncture mentor. A major focus in his practice was the refining of an instant result channel based acupuncture system and protocol that was recently validated with enormous success in the first ever Emergency Department Randomized Controlled Acupuncture Trial. Amos is Director of the Integrated Medicine Research Center of Asaf Harofeh hospital, founder and chair of the Annual Israeli Herb-Drug Interaction Symposium, Board member of the Jerusalem International Conference on Integrative Medicine, Organizing Committee member of the International Congress of Chinese Medicine in Israel (ICCM), adjunct lecturer in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Bar Ilan University, a Publisher of scientific articles, book chapters and an orthopedic acupuncture manual (in editing) and manager of 'Heaven and Earth' Chinese Medicine Specialty Clinic devoted to patient care.
