Acupuncture is often touted as an excellent treatment for stress, and stress-related symptoms, but that efficacy goes beyond simply giving our patients time to relax. As acupuncturists we are trained to view multiple symptoms and mixed presentations as pieces of a puzzle, though it can be difficult articulating what may be going on to a Western-minded patient. One explanation for seemingly disparate complaints affecting multiple organ systems is the autonomic nervous system, which controls all involuntary body functions. By resetting this system, overtime many strange presentations may return to normal.
In this one day seminar, Kiiko Matsumoto will teach a small group of students about signs and symptoms of an autonomic nervous system imbalance, including the Western definition of sympathetic and parasympathetic states. She will share her clinical findings for common abdominal patterns associated with these imbalances, key symptoms and their indications, and effective root and adjunct treatments to effect change. She will discuss the difference in treating a parasympathetic and sympathetic state, and why it is important to ensure that any autonomic nervous system imbalance is addressed before more specific symptoms will change. Digestion, skin, the immune system, and aches and pains can all be addressed through these simple, but effective treatments, because of the systemic nature of these imbalances.
