Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine to Treat Migraine Headaches (Bilingual): Migraines are a neurological condition of a primary headache disorder that can cause multiple symptoms, frequently characterized by intense, debilitating headaches. Symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, difficulty speaking, numbness or tingling, and sensitivity to light and sound. Acupuncture can be a very effective therapeutic method to manage migraines. In this course, Dr. Chen will instruct on the pathogenesis of migraines from a TCM viewpoint, based on channel and collateral theory. Chinese herbal medicine will be also introduced for its application to treat migraine.

June 2 & 16: Matching Formula and Pattern in Kampo Medicine (Parts 1 & 2), 12-2pm PT by Nigel Dawes, L.Ac.
Matching Formula and Pattern in Kampo Medicine (Parts 1 & 2): The contemporary practice of Kampo still bases itself on this method of “Matching Formula and Pattern” so that each formula pattern (方証 Ho Sho/Fang Zheng) acts itself as the differential diagnosis for the patient. The study and practice of Kampo thus focuses entirely on grasping above all the “story” unique to each formula unit expressed in terms of signs and symptoms including a pulse, tongue and abdomen finding in each case and matching it with the patient’s presentation directly. The role of abstract logic in determining theoretical pattern differentiations based on organ disharmony is downplayed in favor of seeking the perfect match between the patient’s “pattern” (証 Sho/Zheng) and that of the formula that most directly corresponds to it. This webinar will explore this process in detail and offer case examples of how it works in practice.
Nigel Dawes, L.Ac. has been practicing and teaching East Asian Medicine for 35 years. He lived and studied in Japan for 5 years followed by hospital internships in China in the 1980’s.

He is currently considered one of the leading experts in the practice and teaching of Kampo, lecturing widely throughout the US and abroad. He is a regular contributor to various peer-reviewed journals in the field and has published 3 books including a translation of a modern Japanese Kampo classic. His fourth book on the topic of Abdominal Diagnosis in East Asian Medicine has been published, Fukushin and Kampo. He has been on the faculty of both Tristate College of Acupuncture and Pacific College of Oriental Medicine where he taught courses in both Kampo and Japanese Acupuncture as well as supervising in clinic.
