    Acupuncturist As Shaman - Treating Heart & Emotions 

    April 29 & 30,
    Poughkeepsie/Fishkill, NY

    Every time an emotion is present in the treatment room, an energetic exchange loaded with information is set into motion. Taking upon oneself burdensome emotions of others can drain anyone. But recognizing the meaning of client’s emotional states, rather than identifying with them, is an essential part of the healing atmosphere practitioner creates for the patient.

    In this class, participants will learn to understand Psyche in the treatment room and beyond so they could better assist patients in their healing journeys. We will draw upon seminal writings on faith, envy and gratitude to recognize the stages of initiation of the human soul. Approved for 16 NCCAOM Acupuncture CEUs / PDAs in the required CW-PE Professional Enhancement category.

    The instructor, Irena Ginsburg, is a licensed acupuncturist, licensed massage therapist, and a licensed psychoanalyst who has successfully treated psychosomatic disorders for almost 20 years. For more information about the instructor please visit https://psycheseminars.c om/about/
