JEFFREY YUEN

Course Topic: Neurology and Chinese Medicine

Presenter: Jeffrey Yuen comes directly from a Daoist lineage and trained under the Daoist priest, Yuen, learning among other healing arts, Chinese herbal medicine. Yuen was invited by NCCAOM to be among a group of prominent practitioners, to write and review questions during the development of the NCCAOM herbal exam and also served on their Finalization Committee.

Program Description: As Chinese medicine continues to become integrated into the West, there are growing efforts to interface its rich resources with the Western medical paradigm. With the intentions that both systems can contribute enormously to each other – garnering both respect and enhanced healing potentials, clinicians are motivated to "learn" how to utilize and benefit from their respective wisdoms. One facet of Chinese medicine is their extensive understanding of feng-wind and its impact on motor activity, cognitive function, and emotional responses. This link is often made through the central nervous system with the brain and the spine as the focal areas, as well as their connections to the peripheral nerves, within Western medicine. Coming from a Chinese medical perspective, this seminar will explore the integration of its theories into the study of neurological conditions, especially chronic degenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer’s. More importantly, the strategies in treating and managing these issues will be examined and discussed.

Presenter: Dwight has more than 20 years of experience in Meditation, Taichi, Six Healing Sounds, Shake Arm exercises. He also has more than 6 years of experience in Mindful Stretching Therapy.

Program Description: According to Chinese Medicine, emotional strain is the internal cause of diseases. It can cause Qi stagnation, blood stasis, heat, fire, and phlegm. The emotional strain, when long lasting or very intense, can injure the internal organs. The emotions resonate with internal organs at specific frequencies: sadness resonates with lungs by the sound from the teeth; similarly, fear resonates with the kidneys by the sound from the front of the mouth; anger resonates with the liver by the sound from the lips; joy resonates with the heart by the sound from the middle of the mouth; worry resonates with the spleen by the back of the mouth. The Six Healing Sounds will be taught to strengthen the organs, soothe the mind, thereby inducing good health.

A system has been developed for The Six Healing Sounds, including the sounds, the positive and the negative emotions, the colors, and the postures. The Six Healing Sounds will be taught in a 7-hour session. Upon completion of this course, the participants will learn

  • both the negative and the positive emotions that associate with each specific organ

It allows us to safely and comfortably stretch beyond our Stretch Reflex while the rest of the world is still stretching within it. This unique feature affords the direct therapeutic effect for Mindful Stretching Therapy.

A system has been developed for participants to do stretching of the whole body. The Mindful Stretching Therapy has been approved for 8 PDA points and will be taught in an 8-hour session. Upon completion of this course, the participants will learn

  • to improve body health by learning how to safely and comfortably stretch beyond the Stretch Reflex of the body.
  • to stretch and help healing some of their own muscle/tendon/ligament pain.
