A More Perfect Union: Chinese Medical Sexology
Presented by: David Allen, LAc, DACM
To bring you this program, we have partnered with Net of Knowledge, a global learning platform built for TCM and integrative health practitioners. The event will be accessible from your very own Net of Knowledge account where you will find the meeting link, review the course information, connect with the teacher, download handouts, print your certificates, and even watch the recordings afterwards!
Description: This course will lay the foundation for the understanding of sexuality from the perspective of TCM to help practitioners diagnose and treat sexual disorders within the context of both acupuncture and herbology.
Goals and Objectives:
- The understanding of how TCM describes sexuality. Participants will gain a working understanding of the different organs and channels associated with different aspects of sexual physiology. This includes
- The understanding of diagnosis in regards to sexual dysfunction. Practitioners will learn to recognize specific symptoms related to dysfunction, specifically the different pathomechanisms and patterns that are typically present.
- The understanding of treatment of sexual disorders. Building on pattern discrimination, practitioners will have a thorough understanding of the types of herbal formulas and acupuncture treatments that are useful in treating sexual disorders.
This course is $25 for OAA Members and $50 non-Members. Attendance will grant 2 NCCAOM CEU’s under the AOM-ACU category. The course will be presented via Zoom on October 15, 2023 at 10:00 AM PST. See below for instructions on how to get access.
