Welcome to Medigogy!
Medigogy is completely free and is open to both licensed health care providers and members of the public. Sign up to access both live webinars and online recorded webinars.
There are two types of accounts to choose from:
For the general public who want to learn more about integrative medicine and take an active role in their own health
For licensed health care providers, such as Registered Acupuncturists, Doctors of TCM, Naturopaths, RMTs, Holistic Nutritionists and more
Acupuncturists are routinely faced with accommodating multiple clinical styles and perspectives within their practice. The integration and synthesis of distinct acupuncture styles can be a formidable challenge. We will discuss a framework for clarifying this process.
Three distinct scenarios will be considered:
(1) integration through simple additive combination,
(2) integration through enlarging the tool-chest of choices, and
(3) integration leading to synthesis.
We will discuss the important distinction between integration and synthesis and some key features of critical self-inquiry and clinician development that make this process fruitful. Daniel's personal clinical experience with a particular Matsumoto-Nagano acupuncture protocol and classical Neijing pulse-taking will be discussed as an example of synthesis emergence through critical clinical self-inquiry.
