Chinese Medicinal Wine

The use of Chinese medicinal wine is considered one of the earliest form of medicine practiced in ancient China. Early bronze vessels dating as far back as the Shang Dynasty (prior to 1600 BCE) have been found to contain medicinal wine. Huangdi Neijing, the medical corpus, describes the use of wines for the treatment of internal conditions. While herbal decoctions tend to focus more on combinations of herbs, wines tend to be just a single herb often for the treatment of acute symptoms. This one-day workshop will focus on how to make tinctures to effectively have available in one clinical practice for immediate use. In addition, we will examine how to use medicinal liquors for chronic conditions and for seasonal maintenance.

Huang Fu-Mi & Early Chinese Acupuncture

Huang Fu-Mi is responsible for writing the Jia Yi Jing, which organized acupuncture based on the Ling Shu into a systematized format that served as the foundation of all early acupuncture training. His text is considered the first text to depict points based on the anatomical regions of the body, thus creating microsystems within the channel dynamics. In addition, the text also integrated the teachings that were prevalent from the Han Dynasty (3rd Cent. CE). This two-day workshop will examine how acupuncture was practiced in the early Chinese medical history and demonstrate the influence of Huangs writings into the subsequent evolution of this rich healing tradition.
