Susie Hayes LAc is a deeply knowledgeable and gifted instructor, with a passion for connecting her scholarly knowledge with clinical wisdom and expertise. Many of the special points and needling techniques offered are not available in common acupuncture texts. I will take any course she teaches, because I know that I will come away with a deeper understanding than I have been able to achieve, even through my 28+ years of experience in practicing and studying acupuncture. ~Rachel
As a conscientious Acupuncturist, it is imperative to consider the mental and emotional well-being of a patient to arrive at an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment plan. Ancient medical texts from thousands of years ago insist upon an inextricable link between mental and physical health, giving tremendous importance to the Mental (Jing Shen) in physiology and all considerations of pathological prognoses.
This 6-hour lecture translates the deep wealth of ancient medical wisdom fused with perspectives from advances in conventional medicine into practical approaches for the psychological conditions seen too commonly in the clinic today of anxiety, insomnia, and depression. You will receive a unique synthesis from the ancient medical texts, as clinically practiced, researched, and taught by Tran Viet Dzung, MD over the past several decades, a clinical approach that continues to be practiced by thousands of acupuncturists and doctors throughout the world. Reflecting his view of the integral nature of Jing Shen in health and illness, Dr. Tran is often heard noting that "the Mental is everything!"
This course invites you to revisit the information you learned in your original training from a deeper theoretical and clinical perspective. It will generously provide comprehensive, synthesized, practical information from the ancient texts to lead to significantly improved clinical results for all patient conditions, particularly in the common cases of anxiety, insomnia and depression.
