Dr. Hamid Montakab has created a series of six courses on the topic of Acupuncture for the Treatment of Hidden Roots of Diseases. They can be taken as stand-alone, à la carte, or you can choose to do the full series.

 

The "Temperament" or the habitual psycho-emotional expression of a person depends partly on the transmitted family inheritance and partly on post-natal conditioning.

The six basic “Temperaments” are represented by the “Six energy axis” or the channel systems which constitute a bridge between the inner world “Microcosm” and the outer changes the “Macrocosm”, and define the basic responses and adaptations to outer events. Constitutions and Temperaments have a major influence on “Belief” mechanisms and further influence the physiology as well as the pathology of a person. This understanding provides a key for freeing oneself from the habitual mind-sets and behaviours.

Choosing acupuncture strategies and points adapted to the temperament, constitutes the art of treating a person rather than a disease.
