In the 21st century, mental health conditions have become one of the world’s most widespread health concerns. We are too easily exposed to raw emotions related to anxiety, depression, and anger, and the physical symptoms related to these emotions are ever increasing. These mind-body symptoms (heart palpitations, fatigue and lethargy, and sudden heat sensations) accompany the increasing psychiatric disorders, namely, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, and bouts of anger. When patients seek treatment, they acknowledge that they are leading exhausting lives, and seek to gain emotional stability and happiness through professional, sensitive, guiding support. The problem today, is that conventional medicine has only provided support using less than sensitive
One of the most remarkable characteristic of KM treatment is that it emphasizes treatment that reflects on each person as an individual. It also promotes self-healing mechanism that is integral in the management of mental health. These approaches to health conditions have allowed East Asian Medicine to become a very popular complementary treatment method for those seeking mind-related health care.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine that are used with consultation methods based on KM can help provide many solutions to every day mental health conditions. This ‘KM Mental Health Certification Program’ will teach participants how to identify significant issues, conduct interviews, and provide medical consultations and treatment, along with other important treatment techniques. The lecture and workshop will help participants start incorporating these techniques in their clinics right away.
