Overview

Register

Event Host


Overview

Classical Five-Element Acupuncture is one of the most profound and complete systems of medicine in the world. Practiced in accord with timeless natural laws, this system addresses the needs of the patient as a whole: at the levels of body, mind, and spirit.

The Classical Five-Element Acupuncture Program offers Acupuncturists and other licensed medical professionals the opportunity to become certified as Classical Five-Element practitioners. The program is taught by Neil R. Gumenick, M.Ac. (UK), C.T. (Adv.), L.Ac., Dipl.Ac. (NCCAOM), and a team of faculty and guest faculty approved by the Director.

Now, this part-time 10 session program is available for you online through Net of Knowledge across 2021-2022, including two practical sessions in California (if situations permit).

The Causative Factor:

Rather than palliating symptoms, which like warning lights on the dashboard of a car, are only signals of deeper imbalance, Classical Five-Element Acupuncture diagnoses and treats at the level of cause.

Every human being is born with, or develops early in life, a primary imbalance in one of the Five Elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, or Water) and its associated organs and functions. This is known as the Causative Factor and is the source of the myriad symptoms a person develops over a lifetime. Once identified and properly treated, unless the condition is truly beyond the reach of Nature to reverse, Nature will throw the disease out, regardless of its label.

Diagnosis, Treatment, Patient Management:

Each of the Elements has a corresponding odor, color, vocal sound, and emotion. In imbalance, these correspondences will manifest inappropriately in the patient and reveal the Causative Factor. In this Program, you will learn to reawaken your innate senses: to smell, see, hear, and feel.

Event Host


Overview

This 2-day cutting-edge course will teach the practitioner how to assess postural dysfunction and prescribe therapeutic exercises for postural, muscle and channel imbalances that have directly contributed to the patient's musculoskeletal injury. This course will teach the acupuncturist important skills to prescribe specific exercises in the management of their patient’s health care. Exercising different body parts simultaneously in specific and coordinated motions activates the myofascial sinew channels so that form and function can align. The practitioner will learn to integrate acupuncture protocols with exercise prescription, including how to use intra-dermal needle point prescriptions on the Extraordinary Vessel master points to alleviate discomfort, increase proprioception and enhance clinical outcomes.
