    Acupuncture Point Combinations Webinar Series, Part 1

    Acupuncture Point Combinations for Regulating Emotions, Stress and Mental Health

    This is part 1 of the Acupuncture Point Combination Series, which takes you on a journey through your spirits or soul. It is designed to give you a greater insight into how you operate in the world around you – some people call this your archetype. By having a better understanding of yourself you can get a better understanding of those around you, including your patients.

    Part 1 Module Structure: 

    Module 1

    • Introducing the Five Element (Wǔ Xíng) Archetypes and the Five Spirits (Wǔ Shén).
    • Introduce the value of Acupuncture Point Combinations in clinical practice.

    The viewer is given a well-rounded introduction to the Five Element archetype system, laying the platform for each of the archetypes to be discussed in subsequent modules. The ‘Guardian’ and ‘Support-Act’ Elements will also be discussed, along with the idea that we are a little piece of all five archetypes.

    The Five Spirits are also introduced, giving a basic overview of how each of them works together within our bodies for spiritual, physical and emotional health and wellbeing.

    Lastly, the viewer is given a base-level look at acupuncture point combinations, including how they work, why it matters and what processes are used; thereby ensuring that you are always treating the person and not the disease.

    As Hippocrates said: “It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has” (Hippocrates – 460-375 BCE).

    Presenter: 

    Each time we experience something in life, we process that experience. In order to learn and grow we must have the ability to process life from a sensory, emotional & mental perspective. There are times when the ying and wei qi are overwhelmed by challenges and they are not equipped to deal with the onslaught of experience. The luo-collateral system is uniquely designed to hold on to those experiences which cannot be processed, in the moment, until we are better able to deal with them. The system gives us a chance to gather our resources and then address the challenging experiences.

    Learning objectives:

    1. Participants will learn to recognize and treat luo pathology.
    2. Participants will deepen their understanding latency and its association with emotional trauma.
    3. Participants will explore the nature of the differences between pre-natal resources and post-natal processing.
    4. Participants will review and expand their knowledge of the luo-collateral points, pathways and functions.

     

    Course Outline:

    • Overview of the channel system and the luo-collaterals place in it.
    • Ying qi & blood for emotional processing.
    • 16 Luo points.  Transverse vs. Longitudinal Luos, Greater Luos and Constitutitonal Luos
    • Resistance to Change
    • Markers for Luo pathology
    • Mental-emotional aspects of each of the 16 Luos
    • Functions, symptoms associated with fullness and emptiness
    • Treatment strategies: 4 approaches to treating the luos.
    • Conclusions, questions and answers

    Presenter: 

    In this course recorded at YoSan University, students will deep dive into each of the 4 phases of the menstrual cycle. Specific foods and recipes for each cycle will be presented, along with a recommended mindset or emotional emphasis that corresponds to each phase. Rooted in TCM gynecology, this course reveals the myriad of ways patients can be educated and supported when trying to conceive. 

     

    Detailed Content

    Part 1:  Introduction, Phase 1, Phase 2

    Goals and Objectives

    1. Deeper understanding of the cyclical changes of female infertility patients
    2. Appreciation for the predictability of female patients in general, based on what’s happening with their hormones during a menstrual cycle
    3. Knowledge of which foods and emotions to emphasize at which points in the cycle to improve fertility outcomes
    4. Awareness of what is possible for women who apply the logic of the 4 phases to their fertility treatment
    5. Tools and information they can offer patients to increase fertility success

     

    Detailed Content

    Part 1: Introduction, Phase 1, Phase 2

    Lecture begins with the suggestion that women's treatments can be more effective once a patient understands what's happening with hormones and nutritional requirements during the phases of menstruation. Phase 1 pertains to the bleeding phase of the cycle and at this time serotonin levels are their lowest. Phase 2 is the pre-ovulatory phase where a woman will feel the most potential due to rising estrogen levels. Certain acupuncture points and psycho-spiritual therapy suggestions can be used to assist the patient in gaining higher understanding and perhaps a better outcome.

    Part 2: Balance, Emotion, Supplements

    Part 2 addresses more fully the concept of "restoring balance". What does balance look like for these patients who are solely focused on the goal of having a child? How can we assist them in "achieving balance"? What role do the emotions play in the proper treatment of infertility? And which supplements should be considered at a minimum to positively effect fertility outcome?

    Part 3: Phase 3, Phase 4

    This part of the class is focused on the luteal phase of a woman's fertility cycle. The foods that she can eat to support her body's progesterone levels are mentioned, as well as herbs, acupuncture and emotional suggestions are recommended for this time that also includes PMS days.   

    Part 4: Wisdom of the Menstrual Cycle

    In this conclusion section, the attendees begin to see how predictable female patients are. An outline and review of the 4 Phases of the menstrual cycle demonstrates how knowing the patient's cycle day allows the practitioner to more easily guide the treatment toward success.
