Introduction to Yang Sheng: Nurturing Life and Longevity with Bill Helm
Sunday, 11/03 at 9:00 AM to 9:50 AM
Yang sheng is the traditional study of how to nurture the life force to improve the quality and length of a person’s life. Based on living harmoniously with the natural cycles of yin and yang and the Five Phases, yang sheng teaches how to follow these principles. Application, practical methods from multiple sources, and meditation methods will also be introduced.
Four Treatments Every Caesarean Section Patient Should Have with Claudia Citkovitz
Sunday, 11/03 at 9:55 AM to 10:45 AM
Caesarean section is epidemic, approaching 30% in some countries and over 40% in high-risk populations, including many fertility patients. As much as we try to prevent Caesarean section, we can also be of tremendous help to patients who have undergone this routine, but highly invasive, abdominal surgery. Expect to learn a set of four key treatment strategies (and their appropriate time windows) to help reinstate normal qi and blood flow in the lower abdomen, reduce adhesions, prevent subsequent Caesarean sections, and reduce the risk of uterine rupture.
Pain Management: Point Selections with Jeffrey Yuen
Sunday, 11/03 at 11:15 AM to 12:05 PM
Pain management is one of the most common issues confronting all medicine. Historically, pain was commonly encountered in the Chinese military and its subsequent management has evolved into one of the leading specialties of Chinese medicine – wai ke, or external medicine. Many of its principles have been retained in the study of die dat, sports medicine or “bonesetting”, which provides practitioners with guidelines on how to manipulate the sinews and bones. Crucial to this understanding is the angle of manipulation, local and distal selection, bilateral and/or contralateral inclusion, and activation or desensitization of certain points or areas. This session will explore the principles and techniques associated with this specialty and its relevance in pain management.
