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.

Why Amino Acids Are An Acupuncturist’s Best Friend

with Carolyn Reuben

Recording

from November 12, 2020

Event Host


Overview

Nutrition is within the scope of practice of California acupuncturists but in our schools we are not trained to use individual amino acids and a pro-recovery diet to quickly stop cravings for drugs, behaviors, and food. Yet, decades of research and empirical evidence support these quick and efficient treatment modalities. Meanwhile, during COVID-19, citizens isolated and quarantined are eating and drinking like never before. Sales of alcohol have increased 55% this year compared to last year at this time and the Mayo Clinic calls the result of our new compulsive eating habits "the quarantine 15". This presentation reminds participants that their patients may not list overeating or over drinking or over drugging on the intake form but a great number of them ARE in the throes of addiction. Food addiction, alone, is the most dangerous and most common addiction in the United States, causing obesity and diabetes at epic levels in younger and younger individuals. On top of that anxiety and depression are epidemic and most commonly treated with pharmaceuticals such as SSRIs, SNRIs, and highly addictive benzodiazepines. Yet we as acupuncturists have at our fingertips not only excellent acupuncture points as a response, but also useful nutritional tools in amino acids and menu choices. I will detail each of the five amino acids that are useful to respond to patient needs, with results apparent within fifteen minutes, and offer the simple questionnaire that helps the practitioner figure out what the patient's most pressing needs are at that time. The same questionnaire helps both patient and practitioner figure out what dose is needed and when the supplements can be stopped.

Consider the practical applications of these seemingly esoteric concepts in real (messy) life. Here is some positive feedback from our last session: "It is not everyday that you get concrete exercises to aid in mind healing in this way. For me, it has been really transformative. " "I was surprised by the simplicity of your exercise, and have practiced it several times since watching the recording and found it remarkably powerful in helping me get off the rollercoaster of attachment. " "It is so powerful and something that everyone would benefit from doing. The world would be a better place if we all practiced this." "Your teaching is a gem. Thank you."

Self-Compassion: Softening Into Our True Nature

with Thomas Richardson

Recording

from May 15, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

In response to the suffering and trauma that is inherent in life, many of us create defense mechanisms that can harden into deeply conditioned patterns of how we relate to ourselves, others, and the world around us. To return to our true nature of compassion, wisdom, and love, we must cultivate self-compassion through consciously deciding to soften – softening our physical body, emotions, and minds. As we do so, our innate nature effortlessly arises. This is a talk followed by a guided meditation.

Overview

This discussion will include theories of etiology, progression & risks of epidemics framed in Wen Bing theories. According to Wu You-Ko, the patriarch of the Wen Bing School, pestilent diseases are a result of airborne or oral pathogens. Each pathogen follows a specific course of progression, warranting different treatment strategies.

Overview

Elements of old trauma can be relived with sensory and emotional intensity. Even so, the patients often do not have a clear recollection or precise memory about what happened. But their body does. Energetic patterns set up in the body can “run” the system. Once you discover the patterns, they can be unraveled with acupuncture.

with TruthSayer

Recording

from May 7, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

Auricular Medicine is a specialty within Traditional Chinese Medicine that has its roots in the Huang Di Nei Jing and some of its branches in Western Medicine. Using the micro-system of the Auricle, Auricular Medicine has developed into an incredibly sophisticated system of both diagnosis and treatment of all bio-systems of the body. The diagnosis is remarkably comprehensive and accurate. Without a patient interview, or history, the examination alone provides the doctor with more information than the patient’s intake paperwork. Treatment can relieve acute pain within seconds. Dr. TruthSayer’s introduction includes many interesting cases from her clinical practice.

Overview

As practitioners of Chinese medicine, we are quick to celebrate the “ancient” or “traditional” or “classical” roots of our beloved medicine, but all too often ignore or fail to comprehend the full implications of the ancient wisdom. What does the Yellow Emperor mean by that famous exhortation from the Great Treatise on the Resonant Manifestations of Yin and Yang that is usually translated as “to treat disease, seek the root!”? Sabine looks forward to exploring with you the full potential of Chinese medicine in the midst of a pandemic that so clearly reveals the limitations of biomedicine and the extractive mindset of our modern world, at a time when needling patients is not an option in most parts of the world. Let us take a closer look at this saying in its context, and explore what this really means for the contemporary practice of Chinese medicine. Ultimately, we shall contemplate with Laozi that “The way that can be used as a way (or in other words, the Dao that can be taught) is not the constant way.”

Overview

Skin disorders in their various forms are amongst the most common diseases suffered by mankind, accounting for no less than 1 in 5 of all visits to out-patients departments in the Western world. Despite this prevalence and the resources put into this field, many patients are dissatisfied with the conventional treatments available to them, and look elsewhere for solutions. In fact, Chinese herbal medicine has a very real and enduring answer for a significant number of sufferers of many chronic diseases of the skin such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, rosacea etc. Since dermatology is essentially a visual art, a great deal of information can be gleaned from detailed inspection of the way skin diseases manifest. In this short webinar, Mazin will outline some of the axiomatic concepts of Chinese medicine dermatology, using many photographic images and some case examples to illustrate the fundamentals that are required in understanding and treating skin disease.

From a Chinese Medicine perspective, viruses can be considered an external pathogenic Wind that invades the body. But not everyone gets sick; why is that?

Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that everyone can enhance their immunity to better prepare against viral invasions and other pathogens. In this lecture, Peilin Li will give you an introduction to how viruses work from both Western and Chinese Medicine perspectives.

Five Sports Injuries, Five Points to Treat

with Whitfield Reaves

Recording

from April 14, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

We often come to expect that many a case is complicated and requires analysis and the assessment is layered and complex. Yet, Occam's Razor, a somewhat obscure tenant of philosophy, states that, simply expressed, "the simplest solution is most likely the right one”. Whitfield Reaves will present five common sports injury and pain syndromes, and explain how it is common and likely that each of these cases could be treated by one specific point. No longer the long list of point combinations to cover all aspect of the presentation of the patient – one point. Of course, we would need know how to correctly locate and needle the point, but, what a relief. One point, and great results. While of course this is not always possible, listen to Whitfield's adaptation of Occam's theory of "keeping it simple", and its application in medicine. And, maybe even come away with one-point treatment plans for a few common injuries! Whitfield Reaves is the author of The Acupuncture Sports Medicine Apprenticeship Program, and his webinars are quite popular on the Net of Knowledge platform.

How the Classical Chinese View on Emotions Can Help Us Today

Overview

As human beings, we cannot be without emotions. At the same time, emotions disturb us to the point that we act no more with reason or intelligence. When a situation triggers an emotion, it is usually an important matter needing an accurate reaction, true to life; and it is precisely that what the emotions prevent us to do. The classical Chinese medicine’s approach of emotions, specially agitation and anxiety, exposes what happens inside ourselves, in our heart-mind, as well as in our blood and qi, our organs, and gives leads to regulate ourselves and to come back to a more balanced assessment of the situation and efficient action.

Dietary Support for Wei Qi for Covid-19 Prevention or Maintenance

with Andrew Sterman

Recording

from April 6, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

Boost The Host, Terrain Medicine, that is my motto. Much dietary advice in the time of corona offers foods to “supercharge immunity” or “help kill viruses” (or denies what diet can contribute altogether), but let’s spend an hour or so discussing the foundations of Wei Qi integrity and specific foods that implement those strategies. We need a clear and comprehensive strategy that the body knows how to respond to, based on classical teachings of Chinese medicine (using easy to find foods in today’s constrained market options). Andrew will present an overview, then we can discuss specifics for differing phases of covid illness and recovery.

Why (Not How) Herbs Work

with Greg Sperber

Recording

from April 5, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

We generally know how herbs work either from Chinese or scientific theory or a combination of both. But why do they work? What in the history of plants, animals, and evolution created the benefits of these healthy little bundles? This lecture will examine these questions, in a mind-opening and scientific (but not overwhelming) approach, by exploring Gaia theory, planetary autopoiesis, DNA, and Plant–Human Coalitions.

The Gate of All Wonders

Applying Taoist Philosophy in Good Times and Bad

with Matthew Bauer

Recording

from April 4, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

Taoist philosophy came of age with the teachings of Lao Tzu (Laozi) and Chuang Tzu (Zhuangzi) during the tumultuous “Warring States” period. In this talk, we will consider the teachings of Lao Tzu, Chuang Tzu and the symbolism of the I-Ching (Yi-Book of Changes) and how those relate to the “natural mind”. Understanding the natural vs. unnatural mind is the Taoist key to navigating life. After years of devoting himself to helping educate people about acupuncture, this is Matthew first class that delves deeply into his decades-long study and practice of Taoism.
