How to Select from the Healing Modalities of Chinese Medicine with Jeffrey Yuen
Thursday, 11/2 at 9:00 AM to 9:50 AM
Chinese medicine is noted for its various modalities, ranging from acupuncture and herbal medicine to qigong, tuina, and dietary therapy, as well as others. Given the repertoire of all these possible techniques, one of the most important questions is how to select the most appropriate modality for the patient. While an integrative approach that utilizes a number of these modalities is common, it is significant for clinicians to ponder which of these techniques would be most suited for the patient. This brief talk will examine the relevance of each of these modalities and their roles within the comprehensiveness associated with Chinese medicine.
Introduction to Classical Medicine for Parkinson’s Disease with Suzanne Robidoux
Thursday, 11/2 at 9:55 AM to 10:45 AM
At the end of this course, the practitioner will understand the classical Chinese medicine approach of some of the symptoms in Parkinson's diseases through the eyes of Zhang Zhong Jing's six syndrome diagnostic system approach. This course is focused on patient care and will also introduce a case study to bring to light the compilation of treatments needed in treating this debilitating neurological disorder.
Parkinson's disease is one of the most common degenerative neurological disease seen with very little long term effect with western medicine. On the other hand, using a combination of classical and modern clinical treatments for treating this severe disease has shown valuable results.
This lecture will present the classical understanding of some of the most commonly seen symptoms in Parkinson's disease fitting different scalp and body acupuncture techniques, moxibustion, classical formulas to treat the patient until symptom resolution.
Healing the Eyes with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine with Andy Rosenfarb
Thursday, 11/2 at 11:15 AM to 12:05 PM
About 285 million people are visually impaired worldwide: 39 million are blind and 246 million have low vision. Many of these conditions are considered untreatable by conventional medicine, often leaving patients in a hopeless and desperate situation. Loss of vision can occur suddenly or develop gradually over time, with impaired vision becomes more common with age. Common causes of vision loss in the elderly include diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and cataracts.
Andy Rosenfarb has worked relentlessly over the last 20 years to raise awareness about the benefits of ophthalmic acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Dr. Rosenfarb is excited to share his extensive clinical and research experiences and provide clinically useful information. Eye patients are now actively seeking acupuncturists who have training in ophthalmic acupuncture techniques and the demand for services is increasing at an exponential rate.
