Tongue Assessment is one of the primary diagnostic tools used in many organized systems of Traditional Medicine, in particular Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) where is dates back to the year 1066 BCE.
In this intensive workshop we will go in depth to learn this ancient assessment tool. Taken from the theories and practices of TCM but developed for the Western practitioner, we will delve into the major aspects of tongue assessment such as body colour, shape, coating and their relationships to the organs & fluids. Through the close up look and interpretation of these areas we will discuss in depth their clinical significance.
Tongue Assessment is a course that will teach you the foundations of accurately assessing your clients and in doing so better empowering you to select individually appropriate recommendations of herbs, foods, nutritional supplements and/or natural treatment protocols. Through the practical component in which we will be assessing one another tongues each participant will be given enough experience to quickly incorporate this into their own practice.
This course is open to all modalities and experience levels.
