This pair of webinars provide an overview of the Saam Korean monastic acupuncture tradition. Special attention is given to exploring the Saam tradition’s synthesis of core theories from the Yi Jing, Nei Jing, and Nan Jing texts. This unique synthesis provides a framework for the application of the clinically potent combination of Yin/Yang, Five Phase, and Six Conformation theories that inform all aspects of the tradition.
The presenter hopes that this overview will spur further interest and a deeper study of the Saam tradition. However, even if no further study of the tradition is undertaken participants will benefit from being exposed to the Saam tradition’s insights into the compatibility of aspects of Chinese medical theory traditionally thought to be disparate.
