CSAOM ANNUAL MEETING
TREATING TRAUMA WITH CHINESE MEDICINE
The shootings in Newtown have increased the need for trauma care. Lonny Jarrett will be providing a class in treating trauma with Chinese Medicine.
This meeting and class are open to ALL Licensed Acupuncturists.
Treating Trauma with Chinese Medicine
In this class Lonny will discuss how to diagnose and treat trauma with Chinese medicine. We will consider the heart/kidney axis as the physiological foundation of stability and how to restore integrity to this most important relationship. Lonny will emphasize the importance of the practitioner's awareness of the dimension of self that is never wounded or traumatized as a gold standard in diagnosis and treatment. He will discuss how to diagnose shock to the circulatory system on the pulse and how to address it therapeutically. We will also examine how to diagnose and treat qi stagnation in the diaphragm. Finally, he will present several point paradigms for clearing shock as well as discuss the use of various acupuncture points.
has been practicing Chinese Medicine in Stockbridge, MA since 1986. He is a founding board member of the Acupuncture Society of MA, and a Fellow of the National Academy of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Lonny is author of Nourishing Destiny: The Inner Tradition of Chinese Medicine
