Divergent Channel Treatments for Joint Pain and Arthritic Conditions
This class introduces you to a Classical Chinese Medicine approach to working with arthritic causes of pain, due to joint degradations. In this Chinese Medicine philosophy, the body stores toxins in the joints when it’s unable to release them due to overwhelming physical or emotional conditions. Over time, these toxins degrade the integrity of the joints, and eventually cause pain, or worse, joint deformities. The Divergent Channel treatment philosophy is to slowly release these toxins out of the joints through the Divergent Channel system so that the integrity of the joints can recover.
Here’s what you will learn:
Introduction to the Divergent Channel System
A basic understanding of the treatment protocols, including essential oil and acupressure options
Cupping treatments vs. Divergent Channel treatments
The role of Cupping and Gua Sha and non-needle techniques (for bodywork therapists)
Who Will Benefit from this class?
Practitioners interested in incorporating Divergent Channels approaches into their practice
Practitioners who are focused on the psycho-emotional aspects of treatment
Practitioners and Students who would like to expand their treatment toolbox for difficult patient cases
Leta first discovered The Five Elements when she began studying Chinese Medicine in the late 90s. From the moment she first discovered them, she declared... "Everyone needs to know this stuff!" She incorporates the Five Elements in her Alchemical Healing Practice as well as in her life. In 2004, Leta met and began studying with Master Jeffrey Yuen, an 88th-generation Taoist priest and Chinese Medicine healer. Master Yuen's body of knowledge is so profound that he regularly introduces concepts that challenge what even life-long masters thought they knew. In 2008, Leta successfully completed Master Yuen's Advanced Chinese Medicine Program. Leta still continues to travel the world and study Chinese Medicine and Alchemy with Master Yuen. It has been through the past 20 years with Master Yuen that Leta has begun to understand on a deeper level, some of the key aspects of Alchemy and Chinese Medicine. In 2019, Leta and Jaye created their first year-long Master Alchemy Program. And most recently, they launched the Alchemy Learning Center in 2020. Leta is the co-host of the popular Inspired Action Podcast.
