5 Elements

The work shop is suitable for all health workers and complementary therapists, and is especially relevant to DYT graduates and students, as the 5 Elements principle underpins the unique relationship between all energy and matter; and forms the basis for Eastern medicine and complementary therapies.

‘Heaven may well have a plan for us, a seed planted at conception within, but whether we have the will, the desire to activate what is in our hearts; to release our innate potential depends on what significance and belief structure we attach to our life’s experiences’.

The Chinese refer to the upper and lower classes of medicine, the upper classes of medicine being about how we might fulfil our destiny. This workshop sets out to identify and underpin how embracing this eastern philosophy can enhance our ability to heal and nurture those within our care.

Participants will learn different ways of developing treatment plans for their clients, giving them a more person centred approach, which shows that the health of the spirit is essential to a person’s well being, helping you to treat the” whole”.

The work shop is suitable for all health workers and complementary therapists, and is especially relevant to Daoyin Tao graduates and students.
