Heiner Fruehauf is the Founding Professor of the School of Classical Chinese Medicine at the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. Having delved deeply into Traditional Chinese Medicine and completed post doctoral training in China, he’s a great source of information, particularly about Chinese Medicine as it was practised outside of the institutionalised settings of Chinese hospitals and universities.  In this video he gives a fascinating insight into the weird and wonderful techniques of a traditional doctor in rural China (the interesting footage is about 2 minutes into the video). This video gives a brief glimpse of the doctor using emotional exercises for healing serious illness. It’s a fantastic insight into what traditional medical encounters might have looked like, and it’s interesting to contrast this level of engagement between doctor and patient in comparison to our own medical encounters in the west now. Although strange and intense, it’s a good example of how, in Chinese Medicine, our emotions are seen not only as key components of our illness, but also as key components of our recoveries.

Prospective patients should be relieved my own methods are a little more orthodox, don’t involve vomiting or wailing, and are considerably less draining.

Here’s to interesting viewing…
