From experience, when a Chinese medicine practitioner searches for content on how to treat emotions and mental health conditions (for our medicine), two key things occur. The first, is that there is a significant lack of content; the second, is that the content available is too foundational.
In this fascinating workshop participants will be taken through a range of different emotional disorders, both foundational and more complex. I have been treating patients for 29 years and treating mental health is my special interest (can’t say speciality). During this time, I have had patients with anger issues, grief, sadness and manic joy. Depression, anxiety and stress are very prevalent in my clinic in Brisbane, Australia. But what I also see are more complex emotional disorders including self-esteem issues, phobias, panic attacks, addictions, obsessive-compulsive disorder, PTSD, and countless others.
This workshop will take participants through two key sections:
• The Seven Emotions (Qī Qíng/七情) – analysis and acupuncture point combinations
• Complex Emotional Disorders – analysis and acupuncture point combinations.
Not every emotional disorder will be discussed. Obviously, there are limitations in a workshop of this size. Therefore, I have tried to select the most likely emotions your patients will present with in clinic, both foundational and complex.
Our patient’s mental health is usually quite complicated, therefore you need to think ‘outside the box’ when constructing acupuncture point combinations. So, if you want a course that gives you content that is almost impossible to find, especially in this condensed format, look no further.
