Acupuncture for Treating the Hidden Roots of Disease - Course 4

Temperaments and Beliefs in Chinese Medicine (The six archetypes and the psyche)

The habitual psycho-emotional expressions or Temperaments of a person, define their basic responses to outer events and have a major influence on “Belief” mechanisms and further influence the physiology as well as the pathology of a person.

Course Overview

The "Temperament" or the habitual psycho-emotional expression of a person, depends partly on the transmitted family inheritance and partly on post-natal conditioning.

 

The six basic “Temperaments” are represented by the “Six energy axis” or the channel systems which constitute a bridge between the inner world “Microcosm” and the outer changes the “Macrocosm”, and define the basic responses and adaptations to outer events. Constitutions and Temperaments have a major influence on “Belief” mechanisms and further influence the physiology as well as the pathology of a person.

 

This understanding provides a key for freeing oneself from the habitual mind-sets and behaviours.

Choosing acupuncture strategies and points adapted to the temperament, constitutes the art of treating a person rather than a disease.

    This course elevated my ability to practice acupuncture because now I can evaluate a patient based on who they are not what condition they are presenting with. The knowledge provided in these courses are complete and digestible. I started practicing the techniques immediately with incredible results.
