Master the full scope of Five Element Theory for a deeper level of integration between biology, psychology, and spirituality.
Pre-requisite: Five Element BioEnergetics
For many kinesiologists first encountering Chinese medicine, one of the greatest attractions is that it addresses the whole person, seamlessly integrating body, mind and spirit within it’s understanding of human health and disease.
The goal of Five Element treatment is to enhance personal alignment with what the ancient Daoists called the Laws of Nature. When living in accordance with these Laws, the health of the body, mind and spirit is supported.
In the context of kinesiology, the Elements correspond to a matrix of specific muscles, organs, glands, meridians as well as emotions, attitudes, virtues and behaviours.
One of the underlying principles of acupoint selection is that each point on a channel has a unique effect on the Organ, much like each hole on a flute produces a different note.
Yin corresponds to the organs that store Qi.
The yin organs are more stable and constant, representing more of the homeostatic mechanisms of the body. As they work with maintaining the body’s foundation, they’re both more consequential and more vulnerable.
Each Yin organ also ‘houses’ a particular spiritual aspect of a human being.
Collectively these are referred to as the ‘Five Shen’, a complex of all five mental-spiritual aspects of a human being, i.e. the Shen itself, the Hun, the Po, the Yi and the Zhi. This is also often translated as the ‘Five Spirits’ or vital organ intelligences embodied in our heart, liver, lungs, spleen and kidneys.
Five Shen theory is the Daoist understanding of the working of ego, or personal self, called ‘heart-mind’ (xin) in Chinese. The Shen represents the forces that shape our personality including mental and spiritual aspects.
It is the most subtle and non-material type of Qi.
This course journeys through the Five Elements and within them the spiritual associations of key acupoints, exploring their names, functions, and practical healing use in the kinesiology environment.

This course is the first to offer a complete framework for applying evidence-based acupressure for a deeper level of integration between biology, psychology, and spirituality. It is a culmination of well over a decade of clinical practice and research to create something from the ground up that will teach kinesiologists how to work with key TCM principles that have been applied as a system of medicine for thousands of years to balance Qi, the vital force of the body.
At present the course requires you attend the scheduled 2-day program.
