About the course: The Longitudinal Luo Vessel network offers us the opportunity to move challenging and traumatic emotional experiences and pathology from the Primary channels to reservoirs of latency until the spirit has the resources and space to process and release them. When this mechanism is jeopardized due to resource depletion, emotional repression, or habitual abuse, the system becomes overwhelmed and results in chronic mental health disorders. Without intervention, both emotional and environmental pathogens can penetrate further into the Transverse & Extraordinary Luo Vessel networks, threatening terminal organ inflammation and/or hereditary transmission between parents and child. In this course we will explore the:

Metabolism and spirit of Xue Blood and its role as a medium in latency
Longitudinal Luo Vessels as the most transformative intervention for mental health disorders
Use of Transverse Luo Vessels in the prevention and treatment of visceral inflammation
Treatments to prevent the hereditary transmission of pathology and generational trauma
Diagnosis, protocols, and techniques of the Luo Vessel networks
Co-sponsored by the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College of Berkeley and the Classical Acupuncture Mentorship.

Join Dr. Kazunori Itoh for a weekend seminar on pain management using advanced modern Japanese techniques including trigger point acupuncture, micro-current acupuncture, and moxa. Trigger points often develop out of acute or repetitive overuse of muscles, musculoskeletal imbalance, injury or other kind of strain. Focusing on trigger points is very effective for treating a wide variety of pain, including peripheral pain, spine mediated pain (which affects internal organs), and brain mediated pain (which can impact the entire body).

Dr. Itoh earned a bachelor’s degree in acupuncture and moxibustion from the Meiji University of Integrative Medicine, and went on to complete his doctorate at the same institution. After a stint as assistant lecturer in clinical acupuncture and moxibustion, he spent a year at the University of Toronto studying with Professor B. J. Sessle. He is currently associate professor in the Department of Clinical Acupuncture and Moxibustion at Meiji University of Integrative Medicine. His research specialty is muscular pain, and in 2004 he established an outpatient clinic for fibromyalgia sufferers. He is studying the use of acupuncture and moxibustion in the treatment of fibromyalgia, both clinically and as basic research.
