I attended a study day at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine with Hamid Montakab on the subject of Spirit Points. He is a well renowned and inspiring acupuncturist and lecturer. He has written several books on acupuncture and teaches internationally at postgraduate level.
He was teaching about spirit points, their nature and the clinical relevance in treating illness affecting the patient spirit and emotional wellbeing.
Health issues like depression, anxiety and sleep disturbance was covered. We also learned about how internal cause of disease, like the emotion anger or fear, or external cause of disease, like damp, cold or heat can affect our health, as well as covering other factors that have an impact on our health like, lifestyle, germs, hereditary factors, and poisons like radiation and pollution.
