As modern TCM in China moves towards integration with western medical thought, some practitioners yearn for a deeper connection with this beautiful and ancient medicine that we practice. Classical 5 Element Acupuncture with its emphasis on spirit and emotional healing leads the practitioner to a deeper understanding of the concepts contained in Taoist and Classical Acupuncture styles. This weekend is about development of the self and the beginning of that journey within.
This workshop will be an exciting mix of theory and practical exercises where you will be introduced to the 5 Elements at a personal level and learn to touch your clients at the level of emotion and spirit as well as the physical.
In the workshop we will be introduced to each of the elemental personality types and gain the skills to have a better connection with each of our patients in the treatment room.
Learn to treat our patients at the level of the Shen, Po, Yi, Hun and Zhi healing more than their physical symptoms.
Examine the blocks to treatment not currently taught in modern TCM, from the superficial to some of the oldest shamanistic ideas in Chinese Medicine.
Learn how we can use acupuncture to emotionally support our clients through the many stress related diseases we see in our daily practice.
Revisit the ancient skills of Listening, Looking and Asking, letting nature and the 5 seasons teach us about our patients.
Be introduced to the “Spirit of the Points”, where the ancient acupuncture point names will come alive in our own clinical practice.
