Course Overview
In this webinar, Professor Gumenick will present the components of a Classical Five-Element Acupuncture initial interview. Attendees will learn about the specific areas of inquiry that constitute a medical history, personal history, and systems review. Attendees will learn the skills of looking and questioning deeper than surface responses to glean the diagnostic information as to the underlying elemental imbalance (AKA Causative Factor), which is the key to Classical Five-Element treatment.
Objective
  • Attendees will learn how to question at a deeper level than simply obtaining information, and how to use questioning to elicit the elemental Causative Factor, or root cause of the patient?s imbalance.
  • Attendees will learn to reach and evaluate the state of a patient?s mental and spiritual levels.
  • Attendees will learn to listen with the whole of themselves ? to more than just data, but to the needs of the patient who has the symptoms.
  • Outline
    0 hrs - 1.5 hrs

    The entire 90 minutes will be spent on the diagnostics of the initial examination, beginning with the first contact (by phone, upon arrival at the office), including suggestions as to the optimal arrangement of the seating and physical setup of the treatment room, through the entirety of the interview process, up to the insertion of the first needle.
