ICEAM New Orleans

For years, scenic New Orleans has been the location of choice for ICEAM’s Diplomate-only Advanced Seminars. But as of November 2019, New Orleans ICEAM has assumed the role of ICEAM headquarters with the permanent move by Dr. Arnaud Versluys from Portland, OR, to New Orleans, LA.

New Orleans continues to be the venue for Advanced Seminars, as well as it is the designated clinical training spot for Fellows, Supervisors or Instructors. Furthermore, New Orleans ICEAM hosts the ongoing Canonical Salon webinars, with Dr. Versluys.

We’re excited to announce that the New Orleans branch will begin hosting a monthly webinar series starting on 4/10/2021! Click the button for details.

Details & Registration

To contact the New Orleans branch, please email Dr. Versluys directly at aversluys@iceam.org.

Due to continued travel restrictions imposed on Australians traveling to the US, we are yet again forced to postpone the Wuyun Liuqi seminar with Tyler Rowe and Arnaud Versluys. The new dates are moved to April 2-6, 2022, right before the 2022 French Quarter Fest (and coinciding with Arnaud’s birthday). If you wish to stay registered, you do not need to do anything. If you wish to cancel your attendance and process your refund, please email Arnaud at aversluys@iceam.org.
