The effects of the Mind over the Body have been clearly emphasized in Classical Chinese Medicine for at least 10 centuries. Mind-sets and mental attitudes influence the human responses to the outer world, manifesting as emotions and classified as the inner causes of disease. Understanding the structure of the conscious and subconscious parts of the psyche and unravelling the psychological mechanisms of “Belief systems” and helping to change these in a regular TCM setting is to treat the “Hidden Roots of Disease”.
Hamid Montakab graduated from the Medical School of Paris, completed an education in acupuncture in France and in China. He practiced in the US and later founded the Academy of Chinese Healing Arts in Switzerland and was co-founder and president of the Swiss Professional Organization for TCM.

Offering a new perspective on development, this course shares a concept which combines both Eastern and Western knowledge and understanding. It is presented half through video and half through follow-along reading materials, in a comprehensive learning experience that offers practical approaches to support healthy baby development, parents, and families.
In the first year of life, an important development window occurs, as key sensory-motor milestones and our emerging meridian blueprint start to lay the foundations for future development.
The Developmental Concept aims to bring the Western knowledge of neuroscience, developmental physiology and psychology into alignment with the knowledge and experience of Eastern Medicine and meridian theory.
When viewed together as a holistic concept, we can also gain insights into themes which link our early development to topics and presentations in our later school years or adult life. This course starts at the beginning phase of life in the world, learning what it means to ‘find our centre’ and our sense of boundaries and how to support this.
You may be a practitioner working with babies and children, or have an interest in the topic of development. The course comprises practical and theoretical information along with comprehensive notes.
It is also accessible for interested parents and care-givers, with practical support such as handling methods and tips for baby’s everyday life.
The Developmental Concept is the result of many years of research and clinical experience by Karin Kalbantner-Wernicke and Dr Thomas Wernicke.

Problems of love and relationship may reflect the strength and movement of the body’s energy, and may not be rooted in psychology or how happy a childhood someone had. Did you know that romantic attraction, and the relationship that follows, especially if ignited for someone who is, ultimately, a bad match, can be a sign of poor energetic health, just like headaches, back pain or asthma, and can be treated by acupuncture? Knowing how attraction and relationship patterns affect one's strength and energy, and having the support of acupuncture, can speed up healthful changes in the body.
According to TCM, romance, love and a patient’s experience of them are directly related to the condition of their Qi. In this 1-hour class, Dr Felice Dunas will introduce you to how a patient’s experience of love, their romantic life and their physical health, can benefit from TCM support.
