Healing with Classical Chinese Medicine

Healing with Classical Chinese Medicine
Healing with Classical Chinese Medicine

Classical Chinese Medicine, an almost lost medical tradition, is based on the deep wisdom of the Classics, such as the Yi Jing and Huang Di Nei Jing. In this course we will explore these roots of Chinese medicine about how Life is organized, where it comes from and how the natural organization is preserved as well as what illness means and how Chinese medicine can help to restore the balance in the various layers in which Life is expressed.

Thanks to the profound knowledge of Larry Ibarra Fredes and his ability to translate this knowledge into the work of your daily practice, this course offers you a simple but at the same time deep insight into the treatment of the body-spirit unity of your patients.
