Passing of an Acupuncture Founder
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Dr. Leon I. Hammer.
Dr. Hammer's light has shone for the last 98 years, and we are all truly better off for having known him. His legacy is one that truly inspires, and he will be remembered eternally.
Please keep his loving wife, Ewa, and his whole family in your thoughts and prayers.
Dr Hammer helped found Dragon Rises  College of Oriental Medicine in 2001.  His vision distinguishes the school by its strong focus on diagnosis, especially Contemporary Chinese pulse and its curriculum, that steresses psychology and integrates parts of various models of Oriental Medicine.
