Depression and anxiety plague so many in our modern world. Conventional medical treatments often fail to reach the root cause for many of our patients. Classical Chinese medicine offers us deep and profound strategies to address and transform these conditions and make a new way of being possible.

This 20-hour class will be divided into five sections:

1) Assessment Tools

2) Defining Depression and Anxiety Disorders

3) Treatment Protocols

4) Follow-up and Self-Care

5) Case Studies

Students will be taught assessment techniques using the filters of the 8 guiding principles:




Yin/Yang and

the 3 Jiao’s – Upper, Middle and Lower Burners.

Each condition will be defined using the assessment tools. Protocols will be demonstrated and practiced for each condition using massage techniques, cupping, guasha and moxibustion. Standard informed consent and discussion of the risks and contraindications will be outlined for each condition.

Students will be shown self-care techniques specific to these conditions. Students will practice these
techniques on themselves, and then role-play with a classmate to mimic the client-practitioner dynamic.
