Teleseminar – February 18, 2015


Presenter:  Terese M. Miller DOM, CA, MFA


Topic:  AROMA-QI THERAPY: Ancient Chinese Five Element Energetics Expressed In Aromatic Blending – Part 2


About the Teleseminarterese-miller

To understand how Oriental Medicine can inform us in our energetic view of essential oils, it is important to have an overview of the two main theories that exist today in practice. Acupuncturists and Eastern Herbalists operate using either Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Taoist Five Element Theory or a combination of both.
Tune in for a unique perspective on questions you may have about:

  • What are the main differences between TCM and Ancient Taoist Five Phase energetic theories?
  • What is the origin of The Heavenly Stems (five elements)?
  • Does each element contain correspondences to nature and the nature of the human body, mind and spirit?
  • Do we all have a unique constitutional element(s)?
  • What can I do if I am out of balance?
  • How do the five phases relate to specific essential oils?
  • What is Aroma-QI therapy?
  • Who can use this Aroma-Qi therapy?
  • What does Taoism have to do with it?
