Analyzing person's constitutional energetic D.N.A code


Chinese philosophers gave great weight to the theory of five elements, which serves as a powerful tool for the diagnosis and understanding of the elements that create the cosmos and all that is included in it. 

The ancient Chinese understood that everything that exists in nature is controlled or influenced by the state of the energetic connection between heaven and earth.

Each element has a specific energy and together they represent all possibilities, directions, seasons, times, colors, feelings, tastes, smells, food, animals and figures.

The indication is to the five elements which are: wood, fire, earth, metal, water, and their energetic organ systems.

The time of birth is a time where we get our unique code of energy according to the situation that exists in the universe at the moment. Chinese astrology consists of 60-year cycles in which also correspond to cycles of 10 years, year, month, day and hour.

Actually, each one of us is made from a particular set of energy according to the different elements which identify different aspects of our life. It means that our perspective to life and to ourselves will be according to these elements also. In other words, we could say that our birth chart is like glasses we look through on ourselves and on the world, and on the way we see thing we will act, and according to that we will get our results. 

Understanding personal map can identify conflicts, difficulties and ability to understand the basic potential. At the same time, we can see the available energy of each element whether it exists or not. When it is missing, usually there is an activity of compensation to complete the lack energy. When there is too much energy of an element there might be a Burnout of this element and disease might appear.

Some of these Questions that we ask ourselves and our patients ask themselves, can be answered by the understanding of the four pillars map: Who am I? Which element is stronger? Which element is weaker? What is my potential? What I am good at? What is not for me to deal with? What I am looking for in a relationship? How I deal with money? How should I express myself?


"Treating the patient and not the disease" This quote is obviously one of the first goals in the practice of Chinese medicine. The universe has its own laws and we as humans are subjected to these laws. Therefore, to keep our patients in balance and harmony we first need to become familiar with the laws.
Ancient Chinese philosophers and doctors discovered different cycles of time that can be divided in many ways. Segments of minutes, hours, days, months, years, 10 years, 12 years, 60 years and so on. So, every moment is a combination of different parallel cycles, same as the specific time we are born. During this moment we are under the influence of big and small movements that effects our potential energy on our perspective to ourselves, to our surroundings, on our emotional and physical health, and on tendency of how weak or strong we can be on different times and circumstances through our life.

Understanding the patients' constitutional energy helps us to know more about the origins of the symptoms, pathologies and diseases, and treating them more effectively with preventing the disharmonies. Understanding the personal map can help to identify conflicts, difficulties and ability to understand the basic potential. At the same time, we can see the available energy of each element whether it exists or not. This leads to unique constitutional and personalized treatments according to the different cycles and rhythms. the specific treatments with acupuncture are more exact with the meridian system and the specific points that will be chosen by their best effect.


In this annual course we will go back to the sources of the classical Chinese medicine. To the "Nei Jing Su Wen" & "Ling Shu" and "Nan Jing" and we will dive deeper into the foundations of Heavenly Stems & Earthly Branches (Tian Gan Di Zhi).  Another focus in this course will be on the four Pillars of Destiny (Si Zhu) which is also known as Ba Zi (The Eight Characters) to understand the deeper levels of the Personality and Chinese Metaphysics. The main theories in these methods are based on Yin-yang, Qi, five phases and six divisions, and on the they interact with each other in the different time cycles and between heaven, earth and humans. 

The course is divided to 2 online sessions and 4 frontal weekends and will include all the needed theory and practice that participants will be able to use in the clinic to get the best results from acupuncture.


Tongue diagnosis is known as one of the main diagnosis pillars through the long history of Chinese medicine.  By looking at the tongue, we can detect pathogens from the past, present and future tendency of getting various diseases.

When we use tongue diagnosis, we can identify physical and emotional imbalances like digestive problems, breathing problems, anxiety, depression, gynecological problems and more.  With the correct system of diagnosis, we can identify the roots of the problem immediately.

Many times, the information we get from the patient is confusing and irrelevant or even makes it hard to understand the roots of the problem and thus, makes it harder to determine a therapeutic strategy.

The tongue diagnosis system I have worked with during the last 15 years enables me to discover the emotional and the physical conditions of my patient in just few seconds.  With that, the decision to the treatment strategy with acupuncture and herbs is immediate.

Tongue diagnosis is becoming more popular recently thanks to technology that is now available to all and by using a simple photo of the tongue with a mobile phone, anyone can send the picture from anywhere in the world and get detailed diagnosis on his or her emotional and physical situation. That's why this knowledge is even more important these days for every practitioner who wants to give an added value for himself and off course for his patients.

The Advantages of using tongue diagnosis:

  1. It is fast, simple and unarguable for what we see.
  2. By what we see there is Reliability in understanding the source of the problem.
  3. The analysis is deep, and we can track the changes of the tongue image.
  4. It is possible to take a photo from long distance.
  5. It allows an early diagnosis of disease and appropriate referral to western doctors.


"Shiatsu" in Japanese means; pressure with finger. The method was developed in Japan on the 20th century and was based on the principles of Chinese medicine. The shiatsu treatment is made by palpating different areas in the body and on the meridians and their association areas. This pressure stimulates the patient's natural energy and bringing it back to balance. 

The course is divided to three levels and each level is based on its previous. It is not possible to take it partly. The course is based on theory but most of it is practical.
