In this course we will take an in-depth journey into the endocrine system, the biochemistry, the hormonal feedback interplay, and the biochemical imposition of the stress response. All the while looking at the way in which acupuncture can be utilised to improve endocrine function.

‘The Fizz’ is shorthand for describing the intricate and infinitely dimensional neurobiological and hormonally driven communication systems of the body, of which the Endocrine system is the conductor of the Orchestra.

Goals and Objectives

  • review of the endocrine glands, plus the organs containing aggregate endocrine cells
  • review of the Autonomic Nervous System: sympathetic, parasympathetic and enteric

  • review of the HPA, the HPO/HPG, plus the insulin feedback loops
  • discussion of the endocrine associations of heart-mind
  • discussion of the key acupoints points and their surrounding channel points, both anterior and posterior + related arm and leg channel points at these endocrine levels: Du 20 / Yin Tang / Ren 22 / Ren 17 / Ren 12 / Ren 7 / Ren 3
