Master Jeffrey Yuen is teaching in Brugge about the use of essential oils in the treatment of Psycho-Emotional issues.
Essential Oils have long been used in Chinese Medicine
For thousand of years, the therapeutic use of essential oils of aromatic plants has been utilised for the maintenance and restoration of health. Essential oils, believed to possess the most concentrated aspect of a plant, were anointed for their scent and applied to create healing on the multi-layered body-mind-spirit continuum. Today, aromatherapy is rapidly becoming one of the most popular modalities of healing available.
“Applying Essential Oils to Psycho-Emotional Issues (Based on Chinese Medicine)
Within the context of Chinese medicine, the mind is inseparable from the body and as such, any manipulation of the body can exert a range of subtle to profound effects on the heart-mind. Recognizing that psycho-emotional issues can arise from sudden or gradual disturbances to the xing-temperament, disruptions in the full expression of the qing-emotions, aberrations to the mental faculties of the xin-heart/mind, and disorientation to the environment, Chinese medicine aims to facilitate the underlying force of the mind via the shen-spiritual faculty to restore and bring harmony back to an individual’s psycho-emotional life. Understanding the role of sensory-perception and its impact on consciousness, Chinese medicine makes use of fragrance to promote and induce specific states of awareness and realization. In addition, the topical application of these aromatic oils can manually activate certain reflex and energetic regions of the body to generate states of relaxation, homeostasis, and healing. This two-day seminar will delineate the dynamics of the mind and its psycho-emotional issues and the role of essential oils in bringing balance back to the body-mind-spirit continuum.”

Essential oils directly impact the brain chemistry and therefore have a big impact on one’s emotional state. When the essential oils are taken internally or are topically applied they will have an impact on the hormonal system of the body as well.
Hormones can create emotional states. And since the essential oils have an impact on the endocrine system, they will have an impact on the mental state as well.
We will in these two days explore different emotional dis-balances, mental illnesses and psychological conditions and study how to use essential oils according to Chinese Medicine diagnosis.
