CMACC 2015 Save the Date! May 15-17, 2015. Join us at our annual Charles Mraz Apitherapy Course and Conference

Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel 135-20 39th Avenue Flushing, NY 11354 718-460-6666 The American Apitherapy Society proudly announces its 19th annual Charles Mraz Apitherapy Course & Conference to be held in the heart of Flushing, New York conveniently located only three miles from New York’s LaGuardia airport, ten miles from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, and approximately 12 miles from Manhattan, New York City.  This location is also easily accessed by the Long Island Railroad and the NY Subway system making a trip into Manhattan a breeze. Medical doctors, a spectrum of Holistic Health Practitioners, Veterinarians, Researchers, Backyard Beekeepers, and members of the general public interested in self-reliant health care will convene from all over the United states and the world to learn about Apitherapy.  Apitherapy, an ancient healing modality, refers to the therapeutic use of products from the beehive including honey, pollen, royal jelly, propolis, and bee venom therapy. Attendees will be educated in the therapeutic properties of each of the hive products including a hands on bee venom therapy session where participants will obtain practical experience and learn to be self reliant with this amazing healing practice.  Presentations are given by the CMACC faculty and guest speakers who are some of the most prominent and experienced Apitherapists in the world.  Examples of material covered in these presentations are allergic reactions, techniques of BVT, informed consent and legal issues, propolis and its many uses, veterinary apitherapy, wound healing, and much more. The preliminary program detailing material to be presented will be posted on the website shortly.  Back by popular demand, we will be offering two levels of the course offering basic information to those new to Apitherapy and more advanced information to those already experienced with Apitherapy. This year we will also be offering for the very first time a special 3 hour practical workshop on Sunday afternoon for those wanting to leave with more practical experience than ever before! Certificates of completion will be available to all participants. The AAS is a nonprofit membership organization established primarily for the purpose of education in the advancement of Apitherapy. CMACC has been named in memory of Charles Mraz, an American pioneer in the use of bee venom to treat many health issues and conditions.
