Tan Tien Theory & Practice Treatments to Regulate Chronic Pain, the Limbic Brain, and Immune System

Kiiko Matsumoto, L.Ac.

This new webinar course explores the clinical application of the theory of the Tan Tien (丹田) for the acupuncture treatment of chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, digestive and immune issues and medical conditions that involve sympathetic dominance. Master Kiiko Matsumoto will also demonstrate advanced treatments to help regulate blood pressure and immune conditions. The webinar will combine live lecture and live treatment demonstrations, with selected clips from prerecorded patient demos addressing specific treatment cases.

In Chinese Medicine the Tan Tien (丹田) represents the energetic center of the body and as a result can influence a multitude of medical and pain conditions. Classically, this energetic center relates to the Mingmen or the Gate of Vitality or Life’s Gate and is where the Source or Yuan Qi emanates. Restoring the function of this energetic center can be essential in the treatment of a wide variety of issues, and can help restore the body’s natural resilience. From a Western medical point of view, the Tan Tien correlates with the Western concept of the adrenal gland and when weak, relates to conditions of sympathetic dominance and when chronic, adrenal exhaustion and hypo-cortisol states. The focus will be on points found on both the Ren and Du channels that can help regulate systemic issues such as blood pressure, autoimmune conditions, allergies and hormonal dysregulation.
