Korean Saam Acupuncture D Hwang, Y. Kim, K. Lee, S. Lee

Saam acupuncture has been one of the most important and practical methods throughout acupuncture history in Korea and neighboring countries. Saam was the name of a Korean Buddhist monk who launched his acupuncture theory about 400 years ago. It is based on the Five Element Theory which in turn is based on the five transport acupuncture points. The strength of Saam acupuncture is its holistic and meridian-based approach. Attendees will be provided a basic introduction to, and taught the principles of prescribing Saam acupuncture. They will also learn the clinical applications to gynecology (dysmenorrhea, menopause), dermatology (eczema, urticaria, psoriasis, atopy), neurology (migraine, tension headache, tremor), and psychiatry (depression, insomnia).
