Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine
1807 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 200, Santa Monica, CA 90403

In this class you will learn the principles and methods of counseling a patient to lose weight. Successful weight loss programs are sought after and in demand by patients. TCM gives acupuncturists the tools they need to decrease appetite, balance metabolism, and plan a diet suited to the individual patient’s needs and organ physiology. After weight loss, planning a healthy diet allows patients to maintain their weight. Students are encouraged to participate.

Michael Apelian, LAC, OMD has practiced TCM for 30 years in Santa Monica with an emphasis on nutritional medicine. He graduated from California Acupuncture College in 1984, and then completed the O.M.D. program at C.A.C in 1985. He completed an O.M.D. program in China in 1989. He has lectured at several learning institutions in Los Angeles, including Emperor’s College, Curenteur University, Shiatsu School of Santa Monica, and the Learning Annex.

The nature, prevalence and determinants of mental health problems in women during pregnancy and in the year after giving birth have been thoroughly investigated in high-income countries. Systematic reviews have shown that in these settings, about 10% of pregnant women and 13% of those who have given birth experience some type of mental disorder, most commonly depression or anxiety. Social, psychological and biological etiological factors interact, but their relative importance is debated.

From the course discussion, we will look at the shen evaluation procedure and the treatment planning and treatment details. Understanding the female energy patterns and shen activities are directly related in the clinic treatment and the results. The course will give TCM practitioners the confidence to deal with the patients and deliver the effective treatment as well.

Chang-Qing (Joseph) Yang, Ph.D, LAc, received his 5-year bachelor’s degree and 3-year master degree in TCM from the TCM University of Heilongjiang, Harbin, China in 1984. Since then, he was a faculty and clinician of the university, specializing in liver disease and mental disorder. He earned his master’s degree from the same university in 1987, majoring in pattern and human constitution. In 1991, he became a psychiatry trainee at the Aichi Medical University in Aichi, Japan and received his PhD degree in Psychiatry and Neurology from the Kobe University in Kobe, Japan. He is presently a clinic supervisor and faculty member at the Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica, CA.

The Eight Extraordinary Channels are one of the most important channels in the acupuncture channel system. These channels are the bridge between prenatal and postnatal influences in our lives. The Eight Extraordinary channels influence Jing, (essence) and source Qi, and can be used to support all the channel systems.

The Eight Extraordinary Channels can assist in treating deep, chronic and old patterns that influence the three treasures of our life: the physical, emotional and spiritual. These channels can release one from emotional and spiritual imbalances and realign one to the yuan shen (original spirit).

In this workshop, David will introduce each of the Eight Extraordinary channels with an emphasis on their psycho-emotional and spiritual qualities. The focus of this workshop is clinical applications. David will present a framework to develop customized treatments for each patient. This is the essence of Chinese medicine.

Dr. David Twicken, DOM, L.Ac. A faculty member at Emperors College since 1994, David has taught acupuncture courses, Philosophy of Oriental Medicine, Tai Chi Chuan, Medical Qi Gong, Feng Shui, I Ching, Chinese Astrology, Medical History, The Eight Extraordinary Channels, and is a clinical supervisor. David specializes in the Taoist Arts and has written a variety of books, including Treasures of Tao, Feng Shui, Chinese Astrology, Introduction to Qi Men Dun Jia, Chinese Medical Astrology, I Ching Acupuncture: The Balance Method, The Eight Extraordinary Channels, A Handbook for Clinical Applications and Nei Dan Inner Mediation. His new book: The Divergent Channels, A Handbook for Clinical Practice and Five Shen Nei Dan will be released in August 2014. David teaches Taoist arts internationally and is in private practice in Los Angeles, California.

Mindful Medicine: Strengthening Communication between
Providers and Patients through Awareness Techniques
(7.0 CEUs – Category 1 – Pending CA Acupuncture Board Approval)
Instructors: Seanna Sifflet and Brady Ovson
Saturday and Sunday, March 7 & 8, 2015 – 9:00AM – 5:00PM
Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine
1807 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 200, Santa Monica, CA 90403

Mindful medicine teaches the healer to heal themselves. “Healing thyself” is a key ingredient to better assist in the healing process of others. Within mindful medicine we use tools to help access the various aspects of an individual- the mind, body, and emotional well being to bring greater awareness of all the different dynamics occurring within a treatment. Creating a sense of mindful awareness within your practice helps to strengthen the level of communication and connection between you and your patient. Creating a greater awareness of how your thoughts, feelings and emotions influence the way in which you connect with your patients gives you a greater ability to connect at a deeper level with even the subtle issues that may be occurring within the room. A deeper connection with patients increases your empathy, compassion, and ability to hold space for whatever issue may be happening in our patients’ lives.
Seanna Sifflet, Lac, MSW, co-founder of Theholding-space, integrates her expertise in Eastern medicine with mindful awareness and other treatment modalities to bring better balance and healing to her patients. She currently treats a full schedule of patients as Staff Acupuncturist with ONE Medical Group in Manhattan. She has reached many people through her personal lecture and workshop series, helping both individuals and businesses achieve better communication and enhanced quality of life through mindful awareness. She holds Master Degrees in both Chinese Medicine and Social Work and has professional experience as a Medical Social Worker at St. Luke’s Hospital in New York City. Seanna has observed the effects of mindful awareness within her own practice. Seanna knows that addressing the mind and body holistically produces optimal healing results. Seanna’s friends and colleagues describe her as having a positive, calming, and grounded energy. She describes herself as being light hearted and a big laugher.

Brady Ovson, co-founder of Theholding-space, has been an educator and actor for the past 15 years. Brady holds a Master’s in Theatre Education with an emphasis in communities from New York University. He studied in Brazil under internationally renowned Theatre of the Oppressed creator Augusto Boal where he facilitated workshops in hospitals and prisons. He has been a K-12 teacher and has facilitated movement and awareness workshops in universities, secondary schools, hospitals, and prisons. He spent years facilitating movement, breath work, and improvisational skills workshops within the New York State Correctional Facilities to improve self awareness, communication skills, connection, and authentic power. His work has been aimed toward bringing people to a better place of connection and communication through greater self and group awareness. He believes that life is one big improvisation and that when we’re open to one of life’s most important rules of saying “yes”, that life rewards us in ways beyond our imagination. He is a proud father that loves nothing more than playing and laughing with his family.
