COURSE DESCRIPTION: For thousands of years, practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have known that beauty comes from the inside out. The colour and luster of the face and skin is considered to be a reflection of the balance and function of the internal organs. Paymon teaches participants how to harmonize the internal organ systems, so their expression on the face will improve the skin's complexion, tone facial muscles, and remove wrinkles.
Workshop includes lecture, treatment demonstrations, and supervised, hands-on practical components. Students new to TCM will appreciate Paymon's clear and simple explanations of traditional theory. More advanced students and practitioners can take advantage of his significant experience and educational background, including his past medical experience to translate traditional ideas into modern concepts of treatment, and vice versa. Participants will also benefit from Paymon's research background, as he explains contemporary, evidence-based support for and against the effectiveness of TCM Cosmetic and Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture.
NOTE: Participants are expected to wear loose clothing as they will be expected to give and receive a full body acupuncture treatment, as well as facial acupuncture.
