1. General Introduction

Welcome to our in-depth exploration of the Wood-Liver system within the realm of MTA. The Wood-Liver system plays a pivotal role in numerous disorders, such as pain, anxiety, depression, fatigue, indigestion, gynecological and andrological disorders, headache, tinnitus, and stroke sequelae, which we frequently encounter. Generally, acupuncture is effective in treating these conditions. In MTA, we also delve into philosophies and techniques to calm the liver wind, unblock liver qi stagnation and blood stasis, and nourish the liver blood and Yin. A distinctive and effective strategy in MTA involves using metal points to balance the wood, a method not found in traditional acupuncture. This course will guide you through a thorough examination of the wood-liver system's physiology, pathology, and its interconnections with other organs. Gaining an understanding of these aspects is vital for effective treatment and forms a central part of our MTA studies.

This course is meticulously designed to provide a comprehensive and profound understanding of this essential system. It caters to both seasoned practitioners and newcomers to the field of acupuncture, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to more effectively address kidney system disorders using MTA's unique approaches.

This module is crafted for both the novice and the seasoned practitioner, aiming to broaden your knowledge and sharpen your skills in treating the Wood-Liver system using MTA methodologies.
