Event Host


Overview

In California, legislation was passed in 2016 to require all small businesses with 5 or more employees to offer a retirement plan by June 30th 2022. The mandate is rolled out over a 3 year period starting with employers of 100+ employees to offer a plan as of September 30th, 2020. The state provided plan is called "Calsavers". While this state plan costs the employer nothing, the funds within the plan bear a cost and the administration of the state plan comes with significant administrative effort. This seminar will review the Calsavers deadlines and how employee count is calculated, a description of the plan, pro's and con's, then a comparison of the state plan to a traditional 401k plan with associated costs.

Overview

Marijuana, THC, CBD, and all their various manifestations (creams, ointments, gummies, other edibles, etc…) are really popular right now. If you live and practice in any of the numerous (and growing) states that have legalized its use, patients often ask about using these products. Even Reader’s Digest and Consumer’s Reports have done extensive articles on its use. But what is the truth about its usefulness in patient care? What does research show? Should we use it with acupuncture or herbs? And if we do, what are the potential interactions, warnings, and contraindications? This course will answer these questions and more.

Register

Event Host


Overview

Classical Five-Element Acupuncture: Beginning the Journey™ has been presented as an in-person live event for decades. Many participants have described it as the best continuing education seminar they have ever attended. They learned new and deeper dimensions of treatment - how to free energetically blocked patients and reach the mental, emotional, and spiritual levels of disease. Now, you are invited to share in this profound two-day experience in a live online format. Most practitioners recognize that there is much more to understanding and treating patients than categorizing them according to symptoms and syndromes. How, then, do you heal the emotions, mind, and spirit, as well as the body, with acupuncture? Knowing the "spirits of the points" avails you little unless you know exactly how and when to use them and how to conjoin them with the underlying imbalance. Classical Five-Element Acupuncture, in the Worsley tradition, is one of the most complete, comprehensive, and far-reaching systems of medicine in the world. There are no shortcuts or magic formulas. You will not be able to fully practice this system after one weekend, but you will learn to identify and resolve potentially life-threatening energetic blocks, any of which, until removed, will hinder or prevent your patient from getting well. You will learn to develop and use your senses, pulse taking, and rapport skills as powerful diagnostic tools, and you will come to understand and manage your patients in a whole new way.

Overview

The trademark process is made up of three stages: clearance, prosecution, and enforcement. While a qualified and experienced trademark attorney is the best bet to deal with these three stages, there are things that every business owner can and should do to protect their trademark. This class will identify tips and tricks for each stage of the trademark process. Clearance: This involves searching to see if the trademark you want to use is free for registration and use. Prosecution: Once a search is conducted and the risks are acceptable to the business owner, it is time to file or prosecute the application. Enforcement: Once you register your trademark, you have to enforce your rights. This is a classic "use it or lose it" situation.

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.

Because of this, every moxa treatment has a more than double effect on the constitution, however, getting sick during moxa season can cause one to be very ill, causing severe repercussions throughout the entire year. Learn more, and how to use moxa heat packs (no smoke), with Susan Johnson, L.Ac.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

“Love” is an imperative for healthy living.  “Lack of love” dramatically affects health and is a treatable condition.  In this presentation Dr Dunas will introduce the qualities and complex energetic make up of love.   She will address the following questions:  How does the capacity to love develop in patients as they go through each jing cycle into maturity?   How is love defined and what historical reference points help us understand the definition of love according to Chinese medicine?  How does culture help and hinder patients as they create, experience and give love? How can you, as a practitioner, enhance a patient’s experience of love, even during globally stressful times? How do energetic imbalances and clinical health problems affect a patient’s capacity to love? What is "false love" and why is it so prevalent in our world?  What happens energetically when we fall in love or fall out of love?  What are the energetic patterns that make up heartsickness?  How does love heal and how can we help those under our care thrive with the capasity to love during stress?

Overview

This webinar highlights a recent video and accompanying blog (www.sportsmedicineacupuncture.com/blog) featuring Matt Callison L.Ac and Brian Lau AP, C.SMA as they develop, design and work through the logistical issues of a telemedicine assessment and treatment prescription on a patient with low back pain. The intent of this webinar is to provide acupuncturists with ideas to help their patients during these challenging and fast-changing times of COVID-19. The current surge in demand for telemedicine consultations, coupled with the fact that most practitioners have little experience in long distance consultation, prompted us to release this webinar as a learning tool, so practitioners could see our process.

How the Classical Chinese View on Emotions Can Help Us Today

with Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée

Recording

from April 13, 2020

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.

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.

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.
