Strengthen the Righteous, Secure the Root Nigel Dawes

Constitutional Therapy, Fu Zheng Gu Ben, lies at the heart of TCM practice. What defines one’s constitution and how can we treat it? During the lecture participants will learn the historical roots and definition of Constitutional Therapy, its diagnostic and treatment frameworks, and its role in contemporary practice. The workshop will go on to explore a working definition of constitution (Taishitsu) and provide techniques for assessing and treating constitutional imbalances using examples of Japanese Acupuncture, Kanpo and Shiatsu prescriptions.
