About The Class:

Tongue diagnosis is one of the pillars of Chinese medicine. It is a crucial skill in these times that require flexibility in clinical practice. Tongue diagnosis becomes an essential tool when other sensory input is reduced, for example in telemedicine or in some in-person treatment environments. Take this opportunity to refine and expand your diagnostic insights!

Tongue diagnosis is an easy skill to learn because it is visible, concrete, and easy to explain. It provides us clear, tangible, and objective information about patients’ health.  Most of us are only introduced to a basic tongue map with organ correspondences, but there are many subtle and specialty correlations to integrate as part of your regular diagnosis. 

Evan has spent the last several years documenting and studying, using high quality photos of patients’ tongue. These pictures have helped him track changes, predict disease and to explore alternative diagnostic models. The tongue is a remarkable example of a microsystem where the whole of the body can be observed. This class will move beyond the basic organ model, expanding tongue diagnostics to reveal common gynecological conditions.

About NCCAOM PDA: 6 NCCAOM PDA are available for this class. 

This Class Includes:
Introduction to tongue diagnosis (for beginners and for experienced practitioners a calibration to basic principles)
Diagnostic method: Step-by step method of moving from the big picture to increasingly more subtle information

And more!
