Presentation Title: Acupuncture and Landform
1:00-1:45pm, Saturday 18 May 2019
Our geography affects our health and by virtue of this, it also affects our treatment methods.
On four separate occasions the Neijing discusses the importance of knowing the ‘Principles of the Earth below’. These are usually as part of a trinity alongside the ‘Patterns of the Heavens above’ and the ‘Affairs of Humans at the centre’. Majority of our training in Chinese Medicine resides in the latter, we are understandably, particularly focussed on people. Whilst some practitioners may be versed in astronomical matters in the form of Stems and Branches based systems of Chrono-acupuncture, very few have studied terrestrial structures.
This presentation will examine the local landscape of our country Australia in context of Suwen 12 ‘Different Methods Suitable to Directions’. Analysing the five regions, and taking a philosophical look at their people, diseases and appropriate therapies.
