JANUARY 18 & 19, 2020

Kidneys, Blood Pressure, Arthritis, Post Kidney Stone and Calcium Deposit - A Japanese Approach

Ling Shu Chapter 10 states that life begins as the Jing from the father and mother combine at Ming Men: the source of the essence of all organs. Nan Ching Chapter 8 describes ming men as the pulsing between the kidneys and the source of the “alive qi”. One possibility of the reference to pulsing between the kidneys is the renal artery, and many health problems are associated with ming men and with the kidneys. In this class, Kiiko Matsumoto will discuss and demonstrate the use of a variety of strategies to treat problems with the kidneys.

On day 1 she will introduce the theory and discuss mineral imbalances, specifically imbalances in calcium and phosphorous, the consequences of such imbalances, and how to approach correcting them with acupuncture.

On day 2 Kiiko will further explore how kidney imbalances will affect the cardiovascular, neurological and endocrine systems including discussions of disease processes including hypertension and arthritis.

**Please note that this and all other seminars given by AUCM are recorded. Methods used may include audio, video or still photography. Because audience members ask questions or participate as subjects in the seminars, and because recording may include audience members, AUCM requires that, as a precondition to signing up for any AUCM sponsored classes, all attendees consent, without restriction, to being recorded in whatever form recording is occurring by AUCM at the seminar. Attendees must further agree that all rights, including all intellectual property rights, to such recordings (and to all derivative works of such recordings in whatever form), shall belong exclusively to AUCM. Attendees will not be compensated in any way for providing the above permission or for releasing any rights to recordings; rather it is a precondition to attend the seminars.

***For Livestream Participants: While we are taking reasonable precautions to keep the live stream video up and running (including redundant connections, computers, etc.) there is always a possibility of technical failure. In the event of a technical failure, any parts that are not streamed properly will be made available to the live stream participants as soon as we are able to get the recorded video uploaded to Vimeo within a months time. If they are small areas that are not demonstrations, we may upload audio only so we can get it up quickly. Due to the additional expenses we have in offering this, we are unable to offer any refunds based on technical problems. However those signed up as live stream participants will be able to view any missed video online. We do not have plans to offer this series for CEU"s online at the moment, therefore, live stream may be the only way to participate remotely in these classes.

****Taping/Recording of the lectures will not be permitted.
