Real Protocols for Real People: Heart Failure
Successful Treatments from Our Clinic
NCCAOM PENDING: 2 CEUs. The Real Protocols for Real People video series shares experience drawn from treating actual patients over many years from our clinic. Each topic features an explanation of who the patient arch-type is, viewing the condition from the lens of classical theory, shaping it to the reality of the person in front of us, then presents the strategies to make treatment successful using acupuncture, bodywork and herbal formulation. The course then shows what to expect from the patient in a real treatment and ends with final advice on how to be as successful as possible when treating the condition discussed.
