Skeletons in the Closet:

Healing Latency in the Bones, Blood and Marrow


with 7-day Recording Access

6 PDA's

NCCAOM approved, California approved


Pathogens that are not entirely resolved may get hidden away and reside in the body in a state of latency.  Latency ranges from viruses and bacteria to the skeletons in the closet that we want to bury and never look at, think about, or feel again.  Latency is a natural process the body uses to mitigate the damage caused by unresolved infections, illnesses, emotions, traumas, and familial issues. 

Pathogenic factors in latency may be symptom-free for a while but the wounds often fester causing problems later in life.  The body’s attempt to maintain latency may also be unsuccessful from the start resulting in immediate health challenges that can go chronic if left unaddressed.  Maintaining latency requires using the body’s resources.  When these resources are maxed out, we lose the ability to maintain latency. 

The deepest resources of the body- the bones, blood and marrow- are good places to bury these issues away.  This class will look at acupuncture strategies for treating latency in these deep levels using the 8x Vessels, the Divergent Channels and the Longitudinal Luo Vessels.
