You will learn about the relevance of each of the three levels in Abdominal Acupuncture with special attention given to the Turtle hologram used at the heaven level. Dave will discuss why abdominal acupuncture offers such a powerful and yet gentle system of acupuncture that usually gives fast effective and long lasting results. He will discuss this from both a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), point of view and from a Western “scientific” perspective. Dave will detail the potential mechanism’s at play which will help to explain how abdominal acupuncture can potentially give such effective and at times profound results with wide and varied (therapeutic) side benefits. A detailed analysis of the importance of the “Gut Brain” or “Second Brain”’ the Triple Burner and the energetics of the abdominal area will be given to help appreciate “why abdominal is phenomenal”.
