What you will learn
In this course, Dr. Tan will expand the application of the Balance Method and discuss Four-Segment Timing. This is an advanced method of point selection based on the rhythms of nature and the five shu-transporting points. Our sleep cycles, hormonal levels and mental states are all affected by cyclical rhythms. Dr. Tan discusses the connection between meridian points and these rhythms of our body. With this knowledge, different points will be more effective at various times of the day and during various seasons. In addition, he will expand his discussion of the I-Ching and discuss how we can create seasonal balance by using the hexagram of the current season to balance the hexagram associated with an affected meridian. This system is effective for a variety of internal and external disorders. However, particular attention will be paid to disorders that are caused or exacerbated by seasonal changes such as allergies, joint pain, muscle aches and certain types of depression. As always, case studies will be discussed to help assist participants in a thorough understanding of this advanced system.
