TCM Acupuncture



Acupuncture treatment for the five opening disorders:
- eyes, nose, tongue, ears and mouth

Dive into the world of TCM and its unique approach to health, where the interconnectedness of the body's systems is crucial. Our course focuses on "Wu Guan" or "The Five Openings" - the eyes, nose, tongue (throat), ears and mouth - and their crucial role in TCM. Understanding the relationship between these openings and the internal organs of the body, especially the five Zang organs, is key to understanding the origin and development of disorders in these areas.


This is what you will learn on the course

    • Eyes and Liver: Learn how TCM links eye problems such as blurred vision or dry eyes to liver imbalances and how these can be indicators of deeper liver issues.
    • Nose and Lung: Discover the relationship between nasal health and the Lung and how to maintain Lung Qi for optimal nasal wellness.
    • Tongue (throat) and Heart: See how throat discomfort and speech problems can be traced back to the Heart according to TCM philosophy.
    • Ears and Kidneys: Understand the connection between ear conditions and the Kidneys, especially in the elderly.
    • Mouth (including Tongue and Teeth) and Spleen/Stomach: Reveal how mouth problems can signal imbalances in the Spleen and Stomach, and the role of the tongue in the diagnosis of digestive diseases.
