Yin yang, wu xing, zang xiang, and meridians are “concepts” we are familiar with, but do these truly guide our diagnosis and treatment in practice? Often times we are more focused on how to make magic with the individual functions of acupuncture points or herbal formulas rather than realizing how they apply on a larger scale. These terms are not merely principles in text books, they exist as living elements in the world outside of the person. Case studies and visual diagrams will assist your complete comprehension, leaving you with clear ideas on how to distinguish good health in your clients and which direction to take in your diagnosis for the desired results.
Upon completion of this seminar you will be able to:
- Describe the structure and function of yin yang
- Describe how to study the Neijing and Shang Han Lun classics
- Apply differentiation diagnosis with an in-depth understanding using yin yang thinking
- List the differences between eight principles diagnosis, zang fu diagnosis and six channel diagnoses
- Describe how to choose and analyze herbal formulas and acupuncture points based on the expanded understanding of these ancient texts
