Gentle Neoclassical Japanese Approaches for Sensitive and Traumatized Patients
In recent years numerous researchers have focused on the key role of trauma recovery in successfully dealing with serious illnesses such as cancer and autoimmune conditions. The more adverse childhood events (ACES) one has experienced, the more likely one is to develop later in life serious illness, and the more difficult it will be to recover. In 2011 Japan was struck by a devastating earthquake and tsunami. Novel approaches were developed in the field as acupuncturists arrived on the scene to help. These strategies make a good deal of sense in light of the research of Stephen Porges, Ph.D. and his polyvagal theory. The effectiveness of these new therapies in Japan that utilize largely non-insertive techniques appears to likely be explained by an increase in vagal tone.
In this course these therapies will be demonstrated and discussed.

Bob Quinn is a full-time Assistant Professor in the School of Classical Chinese Medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon. Since 1999 he has been studying various gentle Japanese treatment styles with noted masters in the field, most notably in recent years with Iwashina Anryu Sensei (Dr.Bear). (Dr. Bear is famous for using only teishin and moxa in his treatments.) Bob is fascinated by the question as to how gentle our treatments can be while still delivering good clinical results. He teaches classes at NUNM in these gentle acupuncture styles and Japanese bodywork. Additionally he supervises student interns in the university health center.
Bob has just finished an introductory book on the use of the teishin in Chinese Medicine that will soon be published by Blue Poppy Press. In his private practice he focuses on the treatment of chronic Lyme disease and children. Through his treatment of many chronic Lyme disease patients he has become interested in the role of past trauma as a hurdle to deeper healing. Additionally, since 1993 he has studied Projective Dreamwork with Jeremy Taylor, a noted scholar in the field, and has been pioneering the reintroduction into Chinese Medicine of the use of dream imagery
