This is the beauty of acupuncture!

This is the beauty of acupuncture!

It allowed me to reflect and deepen on the transforming role of emotions in achieving virtues, and with them, health.

Knowing the original name of the acupuncture points proved to facilitate its better application in clinical practice.

Sharing clinical cases is very enriching.

Thank you so much.

Such an amazing course, thank you so much Yair! I’ve learned the deeper meanings, the why’s and oh’s 🙂 I used it immediately very succesful to myself and my patients. It was wonderful to see the communication came back and therewith also the inner trust of both my patients and the trust in myself. Also I finally ‘clicked’ about why it is so important to breathe/meditatie daily for me, that it helps to release my underlying feelings of panic from prenatal trauma, só powerful to use, thank you!!

An excellent synthesis and review of basics of Chinese Medicine (5 Phases, alchemical nature of energy, points and meridians). Case examples are highly relevant and illustrate the principles being discussed.

Many thanks for Dr. Maimon’s scholarship.
