The East West College of Natural Medicine (EWCNM) was established in 1994 as the Academy of Chinese Healing Artsto provide training in the art of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Located on the southwestern coast of Florida in Sarasota, the program now attracts students from around the country and the world for their Master of Science in Oriental Medicine program and their recently added massage therapy program.

The Massage Therapy program, added in 2016, offers students career preparation for the massage field in less than a year. Both programs are taught by exceptional and experienced faculty in an intimate and nurturing environment. Students enjoy hands-on learning and an externship in a professional environment is part of the curriculum.
