1. General Introduction

Within the MTA framework, we delve into the profound philosophies and techniques associated with the functions of Taiyin and Yangming, the primary Earth-element channels. Our approach focuses on harmonizing these channels, reducing the restraining influence of the Wood-Liver, and promoting the optimal functioning of the gallbladder and stomach. This holistic approach aims to eliminate dampness, damp-heat, and phlegm from all Fu-organs, effectively restoring balance to the Earth-Spleen system.

Acupuncture, a cornerstone of TCM, has demonstrated remarkable efficacy in addressing various digestive and systemic disorders. It effectively treats functional indigestion, gastric acid regurgitation, IBS, and even alleviates the side effects of chemotherapy.

This comprehensive course provides an in-depth analysis of the Earth-Spleen system's physiology and pathology, shedding light on its intricate interactions with other organs. Grasping these profound concepts is essential for effective TCM treatment and forms a cornerstone of our MTA curriculum.

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.
