Event Host


Overview

Tongue diagnosis is one of the pillars of Chinese medicine. It is a crucial skill in these times that require flexibility in clinical practice. Tongue diagnosis becomes an essential tool when other sensory input is reduced, for example in telemedicine or in some in-person treatment environments. Take this opportunity to refine and expand your diagnostic insights!

Tongue diagnosis is an easy skill to learn because it is visible, concrete, and easy to explain. It provides us clear, tangible, and objective information about patients’ health. Most of us are only introduced to a basic tongue map with organ correspondences, but there are many subtle and specialty correlations to integrate as part of your regular diagnosis.

Evan has spent the last several years documenting and studying, using high quality photos of patients’ tongue. These pictures have helped him track changes, predict disease and to explore alternative diagnostic models. The tongue is a remarkable example of a microsystem where the whole of the body can be observed. This class will move beyond the basic organ model, expanding tongue diagnostics to reveal common gynecological conditions.

New and Creative Treatments for the Plantar Fascia

with Whitfield Reaves

Recording

from December 1, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

Join Whitfield Reaves to learn how to diagnose this common source of foot pain, and treat both plantar fasciitis as well as the more current condition often called plantar fasciosis. They are different conditions, need differentiation, and there are several creative and precise treatments that can assist clinically. The practitioner needs to understand how to target the tissues of the fascia as well as including the all important abductor hallucis muscle. Often left out of heel pain treatments, this muscle to the big toe plays a significant role in both pain and the healing process. The practitioner, with this information, can find some more gentle and relatively pain free point combinations to use in treating plantar pain.

After the lecture, we will have an audience Q&A session with Whitfield. This session is designed to make sure each practitioner is clear on the precise treatment needed in plantar fasciitis and plantar fasciosis. But we intend to open up the rest of this free webinar to all questions. "Ask us anything", on any topic of sports acupuncture. This should be fun!

For our friends in timezones that can not join us live, feel free to register to watch the recording.

Michael Max

The most important thing I’ve learned in my 20+ of practicing Chinese medicine is that acupuncture works from the inside out. Learning to invite the body’s vitality to bring people into a deeper sense of coherence and wellbeing is something that becomes more intriguing to me as the years pass. These days I split my time between clinical work, writing and hosting the Qiological podcast.

The Relationship of the Bladder Channel and Intrinsic (Exercise-Induced) Asthma; and How to Treat It.

with Janice Walton-Hadlock

Recording

from April 1, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

Recent research with people with intrinsic asthma shows that they all have a blockage or pathological re-routing somewhere along the Urinary Bladder, the shunt into the Kidney channel at UB-40, or the portion of the Kidney channel that runs from the knee to the adrenal gland: the route of the UB channel divergence. Restoring the correct channel qi flow throughout this route terminates not just a person’s asthma attack, but ends the person’s tendency for asthma. Period.
