This innovative certification series examines our constitutional blueprints (archetypes) as described in the Shang Han Lun and the Ling Shu as the 6 Stages or Energies.

Learn how these patterns impact your patients' constitutions, physiognomy,
general health, endocrine system, Shen,
and their life choices.

Included in this seminar:
  • A definition of archdetype and an overview of the 6 Stages;
  • A comparison of motor, trigger and "ashi" points for face and body;
  • Motor and trigger point needling diagrams for each Yang and Yin stage, i.e., Taiyang/Shaoyin;
  • Eight Extraordinary Meridian hormonal treatments;
  • Root and psychopsiritual support for each Yang and Yin stage;
  • Chinese physiognomy and the Central Corridor;
  • Treatment points for specific archetypes;
  • Contraindications and benefits;
  • Suggested treatment protocol, integrated with topical Chinese herbs; and more.

The Instructor will demonstrate the protocols, and participants will give and receive treatments under her supervision.

Please note:  These treatments are very comprehensive and, in addition to offering highly effective Facial Renewal approaches, can be used in the treatment of Bell's palsy, stroke and post-operative neuropathies, etc., and for constitutionally treating patients who are in pain, have a neuropathy, have been injured in an accident, or have general tendinomuscular issues.
