Writing Precise Prescriptions with Qin Bo-Wei’s 56 Methods
Sunday, May 27 , 2012
9:00 am – 12:30 pm & 1:30 – 5:00 pm
CSTCM Campus, Room A/B
Qin Bo-Wei was one of the most important Chinese medicine scholar-physicians of the 20th century. This workshop introduces Qin Bo-Wei’s system of herbal prescribing, which is a synthesis of the most important ideas in Chinese medicine’s history. It pre-dates most of Mao Ze-Dong’s influence and differs in a number of ways from the current TCM model, yet can easily be integrated into modern clinical use. This system is ideal for those looking to learn to diagnose clearly, write custom formulas as opposed to stock formulas or patents, improve their precision in herbal prescribing by writing smaller, more accurate formulas, or who simply want to break out of a basic TCM pattern structure. Although this lecture will present a brief historical background, the primary focus will be on clinical strategies, a presentation of a number of Qin’s 56 methods, and case studies that demonstrate how treatment methods can enrich one’s clinical perspective.

Jason has made numerous trips over the past decade to study closely with Dr.Wu (Bo-Ping), one of Qin Bo-Wei’s most intimate and long-standing students, as well as several other older generation doctors. Consequently, Jason’s approach embodies a style that precedes our modern TCM system. He is passionate about helping students and practitioners bridge the gap between this approach and our modern TCM model, by clearly presenting a clinically oriented method of thinking.
