Day 5 – 4 Hours
In this session, we explore diagnosing based on the ‘five sounds’ in five element acupuncture and recognizing these sounds. Emphasis is placed on listening to both the content and the tonality of our patients’ voices.
Additionally, we address fear, its function, structure, and bodily sensations. We practice assessing the flow of fear and its balance or imbalance in patients while underscoring the importance of being in an ‘aligned state’ when observing emotions.
In the second part of this session, we review our learnings, including the observation and elicitation of the seven emotions and building rapport in treatment rooms. Utilizing ‘slow motion emotion testing,’ we demonstrate these techniques, address questions, overcome challenges, and break the process down into manageable stages. Furthermore, we focus on creating opportunities and enhancing our ‘delivery’ to improve emotion testing. This session provides an opportunity for questions, demonstrations, and the consolidation of skills acquired thus far. Throughout the session, you can expect concise lectures, group discussions, exercises, demonstrations, activities in breakout rooms, and practical homework assignments to complete between lectures.
