Treating Emotional Trauma with Chinese Medicine: Integrated Diagnostic and Treatment Strategies
Rich in case studies and self-care techniques, this book applies Chinese Medicine diagnostic methods (facial, pulse, channel palpation, and tongue diagnosis) and treatment modalities (acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulas, qigong, nutrition, and more) to resolve past traumas and prevent impacts from future trauma. Emotional trauma can upset the harmony of the body and reduce the body's ability to heal and regulate itself. Once the traumas are identified and treated, the body will function at an optimum level and will respond to treatments for other conditions present.
This book integrates the multi-diagnostic and treatment methods existing in Chinese medicine, and contains diagnostics such as facial, pulse, tongue, and channel palpation diagnosis. Treatments include acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulas, qigong, shamanic drumming, and lifestyle and nutritional recommendations. Many types of emotional traumas and their manifestations are presented including;
> Fear > Anxiety > Panic Attacks > PTSD > Depression > Mood Swings > Insomnia > Sensory Organ Impairment.
How to prevent future emotional trauma will be discussed, and case studies are included to show the application of theory in practice.
