Fine tune your skills diagnosing and treating trauma with Chinese medicine. We will discuss the heart/kidney axis as the physiological foundation of stability and how to restore integrity to this most important relationship. April 26-27, Sat-Sun, 9a.m.-5p.m. Instructor: Lonny Jarrett, MAc, MS, FNAAOM. (13 CEUs, PDAs, CPEUs)

The seminar will be rooted in an appreciation of the core dimensions and capacities of the self, including the individual consciousness, spirit, ego, emptiness, soul, conscience, and the will. The gold standard in diagnosis and treatment is to emphasize the importance in the practitioner's awareness of the dimension of self that is never wounded or traumatized. In this regard, the practitioner's own integrity will be considered as the root of efficacy in treatment. 

We will explore herb formulas, point function, and point combinations as a way of restoring the true self. This is the heart of the medicine. 

Upon completion of the seminar you will be able to:

  • Identify shock to the heart and circulatory system from the pulse 
  • Treat shock to the heart and circulatory system using herbs and acupuncture
  • Diagnose and treat qi stagnation in the diaphragm
  • Test for and drain "Aggressive Energy" Xieqi
  • Treat "possession" in a contemporary context
  • Diagnose and treating the separation of yin and yang
  • Explain the deeper functions of acupuncture points: source, lou, xi-cleft, and "spirit" points
  • Reference herbal formulas and point combinations for taking a person out of shock
  • Discuss the importance of the patient/practitioner relationship: Tong Shen Ming 通神命
  • Discern the different aspects of self and how they contribute to the relative balance of health and illness, as well as how they are responding in treatment
