Apitherapy Symposium

Apitherapy Symposium

Thursday, August 8, 2013
8:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

You likely know something about acupuncture, but have you heard about apitherapy, which therapeutically combines acupuncture and bee venom?  Do you know that honey bees make a “glue” called propolis that has antibiotic properties?  Have you heard that honey and honey bee collected pollen may reduce allergic responses to pollen?  The President of the American Apitherapy Society (AAS), Frederique Keller, DOM, L.Ac, will speak about therapeutic uses of honey bee products and conduct two workshops at West Chester University on August 8, 2013, as one component of the meeting of the Eastern Apicultural Society’s (EAS) annual meeting.  Holding a Masters of Science degree in Oriental Medicine and a license in Acupuncture, Frederique Keller will share her knowledge and experience in honey bee related therapies.  Come and see a demonstration of bee venom therapy and make a jar of propolis-containing salve to take home!

The cost for the Thursday event is $65 plus membership in either EAS ($25) or AAS. Registrants may attend the apitherapy classes and any other beekeeping session taking place that day. Registration options can be found at www.easternapiculture.org. The onsite registration desk opens at 7:00 a.m. For more information contact Greg Fariss at This email address is being protected from spambots.
