When our diagnosis is clear and well-articulated, determining the correct treatment follows rather seamlessly. Proper diagnosis is also our best way to ensure safety in our work. When we are confident that our diagnosis is correct, we can easily stand behind stronger and more focused methods, herbs, and formulas. To diagnose with confidence, we must begin with a proper understanding of physiology.

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).
