IMMA Conference 2011

Conference in Estonia

The annual IMMA Conference 2011 in Estonia ran from 12-15 May and was broken down into 2 components.

The first part was the META-Medicine Advanced Training leg of the conference and this took place on the 12-13 May.

The emphasis given was as the first International Integrative Medicine Conference in Estonia, and to quote the brochure:

The mantra ‘Integrative Medicine for the Future’ is heard all over the world and it seems finally the transformation of health care towards a ‘patient-focused’ and ‘integrative model of medicine’ which is a healing-orientated medicine that takes account of the whole-person (body, mind and spirit) including all aspects of lifestyle is happening.

Tallinn Estonia

Medieval McDonaldsI went along as Richard’s assistant and recorded the event for Richard’s online student participants.   It was very enjoyable, Estonia has an interesting history with an architectural mixture of ‘old and new’ and I met up with fellow students (in person) for the first time, and needless to say we had great fun as well.

Tallinn where the conference was held has an old quarter and its full of welcoming taverns, restaurants and bars.

We visited a couple of restaurants where my favourite was The Olde Hansa where they had staff dressed as serving wenches with medieval music played into an eatery full of wooden eating tables and benches in a rural candlelight setting.

The food was outstanding.
