Treating the Mental and Emotional Causes of Disease
Speaker: Dr. Neil Gumenick
Duration: 1 hour 1 minute
This is a recording of Neil Gumenick's free lunch-time talk on Treating the Mental and Emotional Causes of Disease.
The Chinese classics point to the supreme importance of treating the mind and spirit, as well as the body. Most practitioners realize that there are almost always non-physical symptoms that accompany the physical, as well as those patients who claim such things as depression, loneliness, anger, worry, grief, anxiety as their main complaint. In this session, Neil will discuss how Classical Five-Element acupuncture addresses these root causes of symptoms, at whatever level they manifest.
