Kampo: The Art of Japanese Herbal Therapy

November  7 & 8

Denver, Colorado

Discount of 10% to ACC members, and 15% to current students

Butch Levy MD L.Ac is an Integrative Physician with twenty five years of practice and experience in Chinese Medicine. My herbal and acupuncture skills have a distinctive Japanese style, which have been developed and expanded in my training and studies with my mentor Dr Miki Shima

PDAs 14 CEUs (pending)

The Japanese style of herbal diagnosis utilizes palpating the abdomen for muscle tensions that can then be associated with specific herbal families. Combined with symptoms, the practitioner can determine the pattern of illness, called the Shoh, allowing the practitioner to then be able to prescribe an exact formula for that pattern of illness. These concepts will be discussed, demonstrated and practiced by the attendees to provide immediate application in their clinic

Saturday we will cover the basics of extraordinary vessel pulse diagnosis according to the system of Neoclassical Pulse Diagnosis; Sunday we will learn and practice pulse diagnosis of the 6 channels and the compass method.  The system of Neoclassical Pulse Diagnosis relies on relatively easy to grasp pulse methods that are tailored for acupuncture point selection, often leading to the selection of specific points that will immediately balance the pulse and shift the patient’s symptoms. This seminar is designed to give practitioners practical and easy to apply diagnostic and treatment tools that can be immediately implemented to enhance clinical outcomes.
