About the Event


Luo Vessels are repositories for unprocessed or overwhelming emotions imprinted on the blood. In this way, chronic, traumatic, or repetitive emotional injuries are stored outside of the primary channels (i.e. consciousness) until the body is ready to process and release the emotion. Any mental health issue can not be adequately treated without specific treatment of the Luo Vessels. This course will cover the metabolism of blood, the trajectories and mechanisms of Luo Vessel formation, the emotional experiences managed by each channel system, and the specific theory and treatment of Luo Vessel disorders. The course will address Longitudinal (emotional), Transverse (inflammatory), and Extraordinary (genetic) Luo Vessel Networks.

Key Learning Points:

Participants will understand the theoretical foundation and clinical application of:

  • Longitudinal Luo Vessels as the repositories of overwhelming or difficult emotional experience to protect the Shen
  • Transverse Luo Vessels as a system of triage to protect Zang-Fu organs from damage and terminal inflammation
  • The trajectories, diagnosis, and treatment protocols for the Longitudinal and Transverse Luo Vessels
  • Visual diagnosis of Luo Vessels and the meaning of Luo Vessels located on Primary channel trajectories versus on Luo Channel trajectories
  • Filling versus Emptying Luo Vessels and the clinical implications, protocols, treatment techniques, and prognosis for each
  • The most effective way to treat inflammation of the organs such as bronchitis, hepatitis, and pancreatitis using Transverse Luo Vessels
  • How environmental factors affect DNA and how to reverse environmental damage at the cellular level
