    My teacher Dr Yi Tian Ni, was the first to introduce me to Woman's Health and Gynecology in CM. She was an expert herbalist and acupuncturist. Geometric patterns in acupuncture is just one of her teachings that has has impacted my needling style over the past 22 years. In this class I would like to:

  1. Introduce the 7 main types of patterns, explain their use and give examples
  2. Discuss my thoughts on the parallel of certain geometric patterns with certain Great Sweeping Motions and give formula examples
  3. Describe a case from clinic that incorporates geometrical pattern acupuncture with a matching formula.

I  hope this information will be both clinically useful and thought provoking

Keren Sela L.Ac, MSc

I have been in practice since 1999, focused mainly on all fields of womans heath, supporting and accompanying throughout puberty, the fertile years, pregnancy and menopause. My toolbox includes Master Tung, 5 elmental acupuncture, Sa'am, direct moxa, abdominal palpation and release of reflexes with major Japanese (Kiiko style) point combinations and other techniques I have studied over the years. Minimal number of needles and gentle style, specifically addressing each unique patient at each unique time.

I prefer working with raw herbs that I hold in the clinic and try to convince everyone that raw herbs are best! As part of the treatment, most patients go home with bags of herbs and specipif cooking instructions, straight to the kitchen...This allows for a fined tuned treatment and one that is very easily adjusted to constant modifications as needed. Herbs are an important and primary tool.
