    Treating Trauma with Chinese Medicine: Untying the Knot

    In this two-day seminar, Lonny Jarrett, acclaimed acupuncture practitioner, author and teacher will discuss how to diagnose and treat trauma with Chinese medicine. This class will consider the heart/kidney axis as the physiological foundation of stability and how to restore integrity to this most important relationship. Lonny will emphasize the importance of the practitioner's awareness of the dimension of self that is never wounded or traumatized as a gold standard in diagnosis and treatment. In this regard, the practitioner's own integrity will be considered as the root of efficacy in treatment. The class will be rooted in an appreciation of the core dimensions and capacities of the self, including the spirit, ego, emptiness, soul, conscience, and the will.

    Participants will learn how to:

    • Diagnose and treat shock to the heart and circulatory system on the pulse
    • Diagnose and treat qi stagnation in the diaphragm
    • Properly test for and drain "Aggressive Energy" - xie qi
    • Understand and treat "possession" in a contemporary context
    • Diagnose the separation of yin and yang
    • Understand the deeper functions of acupuncture points: Source, luo, xi-cleft, and "spirit" points
    • Use herbal formulas and point combinations for taking a person out of shock
    • The importance of the patient/practitioner relationship
