Spirit and Emotions

September 16 @ 10:00 am - September 17 @ 6:30 pm



Spirit and Emotions is a Five Element based treatment approach to many mental and emotional conditions such as stress, anxiety, depression and trauma.  The seminar will examine the Five Spirits and Seven Emotions which are associated with the pre-natal aspects of who we are and the post-natal manifestations of our interactions with the world.  By understanding these paradigms, we can palpate the physical, mental and emotional stagnations which reside within the human body.

The class will discuss a classical viewpoint on the Psychology of Chinese Medicine and apply this knowledge into Five Element Constitutional treatments.  This course will enhance your awareness of the basic needs of our Spirit and create a deeper connection with yourself and the patient.

Instructor Bio: RICHARD KWAN, BSc, R.TCMP, R.Ac

“It is rare to find an acupuncture mentor who not only achieves remarkable clinical results before your eyes, but who shares his immense knowledge with clarity, passion and kindness. I have had the privilege of studying under Richard Kwan both in the classroom, and in his actual clinical practice. He absorbs, integrates, and applies the wisdom of various acupuncture masters, blending the best of their approaches into his own unique style. The astounding effectiveness of his diagnosis, palpation, and needling must be seen to be believed. Richard is an incredible healer and teacher.”  Pauline Hwang, GEN-R.Ac    

Richard Kwan is an experienced practitioner of Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Chinese Nutritional therapy, and Tuina massage.  His practice integrates systems of Chinese medicine including Chinese, Japanese, Five Elements, Alchemy, Zhu, Tung and Tan Style Acupuncture.  Upon graduation from the Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine, he started Simple Cures – a Chinese Medicine centre and has been in private practice in Vaughan and The Beaches. He is currently the Director of the Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture program and lectures at the Shiatsu School of Canada Acupuncture Institute.

Richard is also very passionate about working with the disadvantaged and volunteers extensively at Evergreen Centre for Street Youth and People with Aids. In addition, he has a strong commitment to Tai Chi and Qi Gong which he has practiced for over 15 years. He teaches Tai Chi at the downtown YMCA for promoting health and preventing diseases. Richard believes that a simple lifestyle promotes better health and he strives to empower his patients to become more proactive with their own health.
