Treating Trauma with Chinese Medicine
Friday, Feb.14, 2014
In this class Lonny will discuss how to diagnose and treat trauma with Chinese medicine. He will consider the heart/kidney axis as the physiological foundation of stability and how to restore integrity to this most important relationship. He will emphasize the importance of the practitioner's awareness of the dimension of self that is never wounded or traumatized as a gold standard in diagnosis and treatment. He will discuss how to diagnose shock to the heart and circulatory system on the pulse and how to address it therapeutically. He will also examine how to diagnose and treat qi stagnation in the diaphragm. Finally, he will present several point paradigms for clearing shock as well as discuss the use of various acupuncture points.
