Course Overview

In this course, Dr Hamid Montakab, MD. Introduces the concepts of trauma, defensive layers, the role of the subconscious, body memories, and the concept of “Body Armors” with a description of each segment and treatment strategies with the Sinew channels

The body is both a source and a storage site for emotions, especially after trauma. 

Overwhelming traumatic events are subconsciously retained by “Hun” and “Po”. The reactivation of these subconscious emotional and physical memories is experienced as various psychological and physical manifestations, quite often unrelated to a given situation. 

These conditions may range from unexplained physical pains or physiological reactions to emotional or psychological manifestations, as seen in phobias, personality disorders, panic attacks, or PTSD, to mention a few. Furthermore, these subconscious memories form mental patterns and “Belief mechanisms”. Acupuncture strategies for releasing the “Body memories” constitute an important stage of treating the “Hidden Roots of Disease”. 

Completed with case studies, Dr Montakab demonstrates specific acupuncture points to help release, remember, express, and let go of traumatic memories.
