8 CEUs each, 16 CEUs total
9 am – 6 pm
For Acupuncturists & Massage Therapists
NCCAOM & NCBTMB Approved
This course is an unusual blend of Western science and Chinese medicine. We will explore both sides of the emotions and how they are expressed. This course will cover facial anatomy and expressions that are scientifically proven to be universal and connected to specific emotions. We will then discuss how these movements correlate with Chinese views of the emotions and their expression within the body. We will cover what agrees and disagrees between the different perspectives as well as how to use one to strengthen the other. Additionally, we will cover how to incorporate these ideas into treatments for your patients. If you have ever thought about gaining a deeper understanding of emotions, how the body and face express them, or how Chinese medicine views the emotions, this is a class for you!
