Seminar description:

Dermatological diseases form a common medical problem in the West . In TCM, by having the right syndrome differentation, herbal medicine can be very effective in treating skin diseases. However due to a majority of patients not willing or enable to take herbal medicine, acupuncture knowledge and techniques are needed to reach effective results.  The concept of the Brain in TCM is not developed and  its relationship with skin was rarely  described in the ancient texts. However in the last two decades the Brain has been the most researched topic in TCM and as well as in clinical practice.

The seminar reviews the concepts of TCM and Western medicine about skin and its conditions. Dr Wang will shortly review the Brain theory and the related techniques by introducing the general principles of acupuncture treatments for skin diseases and particularly the newly developed TCM Brain theory and its application on skin conditions.

Main topics discussed: 

• Introduction of TCM and Western theories on skin conditions
• Acupuncture unique Brain differentiation on skin conditions
• Advanced acupuncture techniques for skin conditions
• Sample of acupuncture treatment of skin conditions
• Workshops.
