— Meridian Interactions for treating pain and other local problems —

Unified Acupuncture Theory (UAT) is a method for understanding the mechanisms of how acupuncture works. The UAT model is a tool that explains the underlying principles of meridian systems and interactions and it is used as the framework for all treatment possibilities. Coming from an integrative mindset, UAT facilitates an inter-disciplinary approach to acupuncture.

During this fascinating course, you will gain a better understanding of the beautiful complexities of Wu Xing (the five elements) in Chinese medicine, and how to treat related imbalances with acupuncture.

For each element you will get to know the Qi movements and the emotional frequencies to which they are connected, as well as the Yin-Yang nature of the five personality constitutions within each of the five elements (25 personalities).

You will learn how each personality affects facial expressions and posture, and you will learn how to use the original nature of classical acupuncture point combinations to treat imbalances between the 5 elements.

In addition to analyzing the 5 elements, treatments with needle techniques will also be demonstrated during the course.

All element theories, facial and body diagnosis, chosen point combinations, and needling techniques are taught according to the Chinese Classics ‘Huang Di Nei Jing’ (Yellow emperor’s Inner Canon), ‘Nan Jing’ (Classic of Difficulties), and ‘Jia Yi Jing’ (The systematic classic of acupuncture and moxa).

The Shang Han Lun is one of the oldest clinical textbooks in the world, written by Zhang Ji at the end of the second Han dynasty (25–220 AD). One of the fundamental principles of the Shang Han Lun is the idea that all diseases have their root in yin and yang, the two forces in the universe. When these forces are in balance, the body is healthy. But when they are out of balance, disease can occur.

As we all know, Chinese Medicine, including the Five Element theory and acupuncture, views the mind, body, emotions, and spirit as interconnected aspects of an individual's well-being. This aligns with the holistic perspectives of today’s biomedical science, which consider the interplay between psychological, emotional, and physiological factors in understanding human health. It recognizes more and more that the main factor for most health problems and diseases such as chronic pain, heart diseases, diabetes, insomnia, cancer, metabolic and autoimmune disturbance, digestive disorders, cognition, and emotional challenges is rooted in traumatic stress, either from childhood or a later stage in life.
