Treating the Adrenal Glands using Japanese acupuncture

Workshop times

Workshop description

In classical Chinese medicine it is thought the kidneys are the foundation and storehouse of our pre-heaven energy and vital for our long-term health. Although the adrenals are not named specifically, as a major part of our drive and the body’s response to stress, their functions clearly correspond to jing, kidney qi and zhi. Similarly, as part of the endocrine system they play an important role in the body’s immune response and blood sugar levels and so are linked to wei and ying qi.

Adrenal imbalance is one of the most frequent clinical findings and can play a crucial part in a range of common syndromes including exhaustion, panic attack and poor digestion. Adrenal insufficiency is often closely linked to menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes and osteoporosis.

Japanese acupuncture has specific protocols to address imbalances of the adrenal glands. These two lectures will explore adrenal protocol theory and include a full demonstration of the diagnosis and treatment techniques involved.
