Course Overview
The effects of the Mind over the Body have been clearly emphasized in Classical Chinese Medicine for at least 10 centuries. Mind-sets and mental attitudes influence the human responses to the outer world, manifesting as emotions and classified as the inner causes of disease. Understanding the structure of the conscious and subconscious parts of the psyche and unravelling the psychological mechanisms of "Belief systems" and helping to change these in a regular TCM setting is to treat the "Hidden Roots of Disease".
  • Understand the concept of physical and psychological health. The relation between the mind and the body.
  • Learn the structure of the Psyche in Chinese medicine and its parallels with Western psychology.
  • Learn the workings of the mind and the functions and disturbances of Shen, Hun, Yi, Po & Zhi and Acupuncture treatment strategies.
