People often suffer as they die, and we as acupuncturists can help in the assistance of their death. We help them relax and let go; this softening offers release from their fears and anxieties. Acupuncture in hospice care allows the person the opportunity to participate consciously in their own dying process.

Gwen is also a senior instructor in Contemporary Chinese pulse diagnosis, also known as the “Shen/Hammer Pulse System”, and both a clinical supervisor and faculty member at the National University of Naturopathic Medicine.

Addressing Social Determinants of health, defined as inequalities in Social, Environmental and Economic conditions, according to WHO, can prevent approximately 85% of all premature deaths. Social Determinants of health are the most important aspect of medicine. The deliberate lack of focus on these underlying causes of health in standard medical education leads to unethical, harmful, and discriminatory care. This course will teach how to incorporate this essential knowledge in your clinical practice to provide dignified and equitable care.

Hun and Po are among the key concepts of Chinese Medicine; they are presented here by Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée through their characters, their uses and meanings in classical Chinese texts and in medical texts, and with their main correlated notions. Key sentences and excerpts are studied directly from the source texts including discussion of their practical applications. Among the Five Aspects of the Spirit (shen), the Hun souls are the spiritual and intelligent aspects, associated with Heaven, the Immaterial and with the Liver; the Po souls are the corporeal and sentient aspects, associated with Earth, the body and with the Lung. This recorded course covers all of these concepts.
TCM academic and historian, Elisabeth Rochat has specialized in both medical and philosophical Classics in her 40+ years career. She co-authored 'A Survey of Chinese Medicine' and continues to teach about the Classics of TCM internationally.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other effectively. In MS, the body presents with a wide range of symptoms; some physical, emotional or psychological. Symptoms can range from sudden paralysis, sudden blindness, muscle twitching or weakness, muscle atrophy, incontinence of stool and urine, mental confusion, aphasia, depression, loss of memory or loss of cognitive functions and so on. This disease mainly affects women three times more than men, between the ages of 20 to 40. It is recorded that there were over 20 million cases of MS in Northern Europe.
Western medicine has reached a certain level of advancements when it comes to diagnosing this disease. However, the causes of MS are still considered unknown and treatments of MS are still experimental and have severe side effects such as mild or severe depression, multi organ failure and death. Chinese medicine can greatly affect the quality and length of the life. With the right treatment approach, we can treat the presenting symptoms and prevent them from returning. Using the wealth of information given to us in the classical Chinese medicine we are able to have effective treatment for MS patients.
In this recorded seminar, Dr. Robidoux clearly explains the classical understanding of the body and mind in Chinese medicine and relates it to severe degenerative neurological diseases. Dr. Robidoux presents important treatment protocols effective for MS using some body and scalp acupuncture, moxibustion and herbal medicine. Dr. Robidoux also covers additional treatment approaches for over 20 of the main symptoms seen in MS.
Dr. Robidoux was involved in a Chinese medicine research treating MS with Chinese medicine and has successfully treated MS patients in Canada and Europe successfully. She introduces some of the clinical cases and treatment protocols.

Don't guess! Don't needle locations that "might" be helpful. Know where the channel Qi is blocked or running amok, and correct it directly! Direct perception of the Channel Qi is one of the most accurate methods of determining the exact location of underlying disharmony, and makes obvious the exact location for needling in order to treat an individual's disease or pain. When you can feel channel Qi directly, you realize the literal meaning of "One channel attacking another," or "The channel diverges," and "Go through, no pain." Learn why in this class. This class will also explain how a cure for an "incurable" illness, Parkinson's disease, was discovered: via detecting a particular pattern of Rebellious channel Qi and realizing that this channel aberration is normal during shock or near-death trauma. Only by knowing where the channel has gone awry can one efficiently, elegantly, be certain of bringing the channel Qi flow back to "harmony," restoring health.
