8 Extraordinary Vessels: Diagnosis and Treatment of Pscho-emotional Pain

Webinar with Ms. Yvonne Farrell, DAOM, L.Ac.

This course gives an overview of the 8 Extraordinary Vessels, their use in the diagnosis and treatment of psycho-emotional disorders and how the functions of these vessels relate to psycho-emotional health and respond to evolutionary stress.

Understanding the pathways and the points along the trajectories allows for a deeper understanding of how to use these vessels to help patients adapt to the major changes in life that often cause emotional suffering. This approach benefits not only the psycho-emotional well-being but also the physical health, easing the suffering caused by stress-induced illness.
