Biography and Curriculum Vitae

Z'ev Rosenberg, L.Ac., Dipl. Ac., F.N.A.A.O.M.

Z'ev Rosenberg began his study of Chinese Herbology in the early 1970s, with studies in macrobiotics and Shiatsu. He was introduced to the theory of Chinese Herbology at that time by Michael Broffman, L.Ac. He received a degree from the Santa Fe School of Natural Medicine in herbology and massage in 1976, the Kushi Institute (macrobiotics and Shiatsu) in 1979, Southwest Acupuncture College in 1983 and the Emperor's College of Oriental Medicine (post-graduate master's degree in Oriental Medicine) in 1989. Z'ev has worked as a macrobiotic counselor and shiatsu practitioner throughout the 1970s, and has been in full-time practice in acupuncture and Chinese Herbology since 1983.

Z'ev has lectured widely both to the public and to students of both Chinese Herbology and macrobiotics over the last 25 years. He is the former president of the Acupuncture Association of Colorado (AAC), where he spearheaded a successful drive to register acupuncture practitioners in that state. He also has written several articles for professional Chinese medical journals, including Oriental Medicine, Protocol Journal of Botanical Medicine, Journal of Oriental Medicine in America, Journal of Chinese Medicine, and most recently The Lantern Journal.
