Scalp Acupuncture and Classical Herbal Medicine for Neurology

Sept 15-17, 2017 at the Hyatt House Raleigh North Hills in Raleigh, NC

On the first day of this seminar, Dr. Robidoux will focus on teaching two different scalp acupuncture systems to treat over 20 different neurological disorders. During the morning class Suzanne will cover the necessary treatment protocols and needling techniques to treat diseases such as post-stroke paralysis, paraplegia, hemiplegia, aphasia, aphonia, amnesia, and some degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and Meniere’s disease, as well as other types of psychosomatic diseases including ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder), anxiety disorders, OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), MDD (Major Depressive Disorder), covering the full treatment scope. During the afternoon class Suzanne will review interesting and relevant case studies to further clarify the treatment applications.

During the second and third days, Dr. Robidoux will focus on teaching the full differentiation and treatment scope of treating neurological and psychosomatic disorders using the classical herbal system of Jing Fang. In China, there are over 41 different lineages of Zhang Zhong Jing’s classical texts recorded by Dr. Wang Qing Guo from the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, confirming the multiple branches of this classical gem. Our lineage of this classical system was kept alive with the teachings of Dr. Feng Shi Lun (冯世伦) who received his knowledge from Professor Hu Xi Shu (胡希恕), which learned from the master eunuch Wang Xiang Wei (王祥微). Generation after generation, this clinical gem was kept alive, while its understanding continued to develop and expand.

Both of the scalp acupuncture and the Jing fang courses can be taken together or separately.

Generation after generation, this clinical gem was kept alive, while its understanding continued to develop and expand.
