Each insomnia case I have treated in my clinic is different and hence, the formulas are as varied as the presentations. Therefore, it would be impossible to teach a comprehensive course on the treatment of insomnia with classical formulas even if I had three whole days to do it! However, there are some principles, and formulas related to those principles, that are key to working with this common and often recalcitrant issue. This class will cover some of these key principles, giving the students some very effective tools with which to approach their patients.
To grasp key principles and the herbal formulas that go with those principles

She continued her language study at Mt. Holyoke College and translates much of her own teaching materials. In 2007 she traveled back to China to study classic formulas with Dr. Huang Huang, who continues to be one of her teachers. She studied and apprenticed with Kiiko Matsumoto for 12 years and developed Integrative Mandala Acupuncture as a synthesis of her study with both Chinese and Japanese acupuncture teachers.
