Treatment of Emotional Disorders with Giovanni Maciocia. Video of a live lecture with Giovanni Maciocia stating the Chinese medicine view of the psyche and the treatment of some common mental-emotional problems. The nature and clinical application of the five Spiritual Aspects, i.e. the Hun, Po, Shen, Yi and Zhi.
These five psychic aspects of the 5 Zang organs constitute the ancient Chinese view of the psyche. After discussing the Five Spiritual Aspects, the seminar will look at the emotions as causes of disease in Chinese medicine. The lecture will look at how the emotions considered by Chinese medicine and the way of dealing with them have been heavily influenced by the Confucian philosophy which is not necessarily relevant to Western patients in the 21st century. The seminar will show that Qi stagnation affects practically every organ and, in the emotional life, Heart-Qi and Lung-Qi stagnation are particularly important and common.
The seminar will discuss in particular the conditions of depression and anxiety and their treatment. After the discussion of the picture of the psyche in Chinese medicine, several relevant clinical strategies will be presented with the acupuncture and herbal treatment. In particular, the discussion of the acupuncture treatment will present a new angle in the use of the Gall Bladder channel and the Shao Yang in general. This course includes a streaming video with extensive notes downloadable as pdf.
