Nine Star Patterns and the Small Intestine

Saturday, 11/04 at 11:15 AM to 12:05 PM

This course will cover patterns related to the small intestine and their foundation in Chinese medicine. Kiiko will discuss the classics, the theoretical basis of the nine star system, the reflection of the nine star map in relation to the abdomen, and clinical applications. This is a great short course for anyone interested in a fresh interpretation of classical Chinese medical texts, and how to use this information to help their patients.
