Guide to the Organ Systems

video placeholder

In Chinese medicine, organs are complex physical and energetic systems.  Organ Systems are the crossroads of body, mind, emotion and spirit.

Organs gather, store, and transform energy. When you understand the 12 Organ Systems, you can better assess and treat conditions using meridians and acupoints.

(The Long Story)

Big Tree School of Natural Healing"Guide to the Organ Systems is an extremely, thorough course. In my opinion, a "must do" course if you want to have a detailed knowledge of Taoism, Chinese Medicine, the 5 Elements, and the Organ Systems, and how they are woven together to make an incredible modality for healing, diet, every day living and managing your emotions, as well as hands on bodywork." - Barbette C.

Big Tree School of Natural Healing"Guide to the Organ Systems is very rich within each system, and in their relationships to each other. It deepened my sense of what we are working with, how to optimize life, and how to rebalance. Cindy, as usual, made the material easy to understand and alive at the same time. It is a very fine intricate weave. I highly recommend it!"

Big Tree School of Natural Healing"As I progressed through the Organ System lessons it had a direct affect on me and my clients. Feeling more grounded, listening to clients more closely during the intake process and listening to their bodies during the massage. A new sense of intention and pause translating into clients providing positive feedback. Thank you Cindy for this class. So glad I took this step!." - Jean F.

Organ Systems are the center of the mysterious web of mind-body-emotion-spirit.

Guide to the Organ Systems

Guide to the Organ Systems is intended to give the practitioner a solid foundation in Chinese medical physiology so that they understand commonly seen symptoms and conditions from the energetic perspective of Chinese medicine.

Understanding Chinese physiology offers practitioners an invaluable tool for assessing and addressing conditions that elude modern western medicine. Knowing the specifics of each Organ System empowers the practitioner to make better choices about which acupoints to use in order to return the system to balance, flow, and health.
