Deep understanding and treating psychological cases with acupuncture
A man's faults are essentially rooted in his type of mind. Observe his faults and you may know his virtue" Confucius
Most patients are in need of internal healing and transformation; therefore, in order to promote change at the source of their disharmony, we as practitioners need to understand the internal causes of disease - the emotions. Chinese medicine offers a deep understanding of life, well-being, disease and suffering. This understanding is rooted in the movement of Qi between heaven and earth. Although these concepts are ancient, they present a very detailed system, which explains the functions of the Shen and the mind as well as the interaction between the two.
It seems that in the current usage of TCM external pathological factors such as Wind, Damp etc. receive greater emphasis, while the root of understanding, diagnosing and treating psychological and autoimmune disorders lies within the Interaction between the Qi Shen and the emotions.
The seven internal causes of disease i.e. the 7 emotions and their pathological effects on the body are described in different ancient texts, such as in Su Wen 39, for example: “when one is angry the Qi rises upwards”. This statement presents an emotion such as anger, while simultaneously explaining the movement of Qi and its effect both on liver function and on the Shen – Hun. The two appear to be inherently interconnected.
In the presentation there will be a discussion of clinical cases. including the most effective acupuncture points for treatment, points which can evoke a deep healing and transformation of the distractive effect of the 7 emotions into the 5 virtues.
"… the superior doctors treat the Shen, the inferior treat the body, the superior doctor prevents disease, the inferior treats the disease".
