Emotional trauma can upset the harmony of the body and reduce the body's ability to heal and regulate itself. Once the traumas are identified and treated, the body will function at an optimum level and will respond to treatments for other conditions present. This book integrates the multi-diagnostic and treatment methods existing in Chinese medicine, and contains diagnostics such as facial, pulse, tongue, and channel palpation diagnosis. Treatments include acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulas, qigong, shamanic drumming, and lifestyle and nutritional recommendations. Many types of emotional traumas and their manifestations are presented, including fear, anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, depression, mood swings, insomnia and sensory organ impairment. How to prevent future emotional trauma will be discussed, and case studies are included to show the application of theory in practice.
