Meet Our Sponsors
Our sponsors will have vendor booths, samples, and special offers at the Orthopedic Acupuncture Symposium.
All of our sponsors are licensed practitioners who had a vision and passion to create a high quality product for use in the clinic. When you use their products, you can be sure that you are not only getting the best, but that you are also supporting a small business that makes products here in the U.S.
Make sure to stop by their booths at Symposium and learn more about their amazing products!
Eliz Britton, DAOM
Dr. Eliz Erman-Britton has been a dedicated practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for over 13 years. Her studies at ChengDu University of TCM in Si Chuan, China, and clinical experience working in a Western medicine family practice have helped her build a unique understanding of how Chinese and Western medicine can coexist and mutually benefit from each other. Inspired by her academic experience and personal journey with pain management, Eliz began Botanical EZ, LLC and formal production of her relief products in 2018.
Aaron Lee, DAOM
First and foremost, our business is an LGBTQIA minority-owned and operated small business in San Jose, CA. We saw a need for color when it came to glass cupping therapy cups, and our passion was always to bring a touch of color into the world of cupping therapy. Our cups are made locally in San Jose, CA, by Dr. Aaron Lee, DAOM, L. Ac. Dr. Aaron is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Though we could outsource the creation of our cups to other countries, we feel that when you support a local artist, you’re supporting the local economy and someone’s artistic passion, creativity, and vision.
Each cup is handmade, individualistic, and has its own artistic integrity and nuance, and no cup is ever 100% the same, just like each practitioner of cupping therapy. When you purchase from us, you’re choosing to support human rights and equality in addition to artistic creativity and expression.
Welcome to the world of Flaming Cups; we hope you enjoy our artistic creations.
Hugh Turcotte, L.Ac.
Red Emperor’s Immortal Flame
For Hugh, Red Emperor’s Immortal Flame (REIF) is a labor of love. To produce a medicinal-grade artisinal-quality topical that virtually sells itself with an instantaneous proof of concept requires uncompromising consistency in all aspects of production. As Hugh puts it, “I’m unreasonably patient so you dont have to be.” Since being handed down this “indoor” martial arts family formula in 2012 by his uncle and long-time mentor Sifu Dr. Tom Turcotte D.O.M., Hugh has made the REIF Mission equally about healing patients, supporting the bottom lines of practitioners and their clinics, and representing the highest ideals of both modern and ancient medical traditions.
