Short Course with Endeavour
Writing a case study for publication

Presented by Jane Frawley

For many health professionals, the idea of research involves large clinical trials and is far removed from the everyday experience of providing quality health care the public.

This view overlooks the value of a case study and case series in adding new knowledge to an under-researched area. A case study is a valuable tool for sharing the results of a clinical intervention with the broader research community. However, the value of a case study requires adherence to a particular structure and inclusion of key content. Jane Frawley will provide an interactive and practical workshop for practitioner-authors interested in seeing the results from their clinical experience inform the future work of researchers nationally and internationally. Attendees are invited to bring along a case that they would like to write up for publication to be used for interactive learning.

CHINA BOOKS is delighted to announce that we will once again facilitate the now famous 'Constitutional Facial Acupuncture' workshop presented by world renowned teacher Mary Elizabeth Wakefield.

Venue: TBA in Sydney

Cost: $990 Early bird rate for association members (registration more than 6 weeks before seminar), regular fee $1200 for association members


The protocols in this seminar are based upon those found in Ms Wakefield's book, 'Constitutional Facial Acupuncture', which has recently been published by Elsevier (UK). Course materials will include a definition of facial acupuncture, benefits and contraindications, and information on the 3 levels of consitutional treatment - Jing, Ying and Wei. 

The facial protocols utilise the origin and insertion of the facial muscles to more effectively life and tone the face; participants will also learn the location and TCM indications for the 3 Shen scalp points, which will be paired with specific essential oils, and can be used to address psycho-spiritual issues that may arise during a treatment.

A complete topical Chinese herbal treatment featuring natural creams, essential oils, hydrosols and the use of jade rollerse will be introduced to support and enhance the results of the needling protocols

Ms Wakefield will conclude her presentation with a demonstration of the entire treatment protocol for participants.

DNA (Distal Needling Acupuncture): A Synthesis of All the DNA Approaches (Master Tung, Dr. Tan, Chao Chen, et al)

CHINA BOOKS is delighted to announce that ROBERT DOANE will be teaching in Sydney early 2015!

DAY1: DNA (Distal Needling Acupuncture): A Synthesis of All the Distal Acupuncture Approaches (Master Tung, Dr. Tan, Chao Chen, et al)

How to treat upper body pain with instant results
The purpose of this lecture is to describe in detail the distal method of acupuncture (DNA) used by Robert Doane, one of the foremost Chinese medical practitioners in the United States. Mr. Doane has treated over 150,000 patient visits and the DNA method allowed him to operate one of the largest Chinese Medical Clinics in the USA. Mr. Doane’s acupuncture methods are derived from other distal needling masters such as Dr. Richard Tan, Dr. Chao Chen and Dr. Tang from Taiwan. Over his 16 years of experience Mr. Doane has developed his own method of treatment, which he calls DNA, and the first part of this 2-part seminar will explain this method and exactly how it works scientifically. Part 1 will focus on upper body pain and how to alleviate it. The seminar will include demonstrations and an in depth discussion of the DNA system and its similarities to other distal needling acupuncture approaches.

Course goals

Practitioners will receive the complete outline of how to treat pains, numbness as well as other musculoskeletal related problems. We will systematically cover:
the upper body (fingers, hands, forearms, upper arms, shoulders, head/face, upper back, chest)

DAY 2: How to treat lower body pain with instant results.

Part II of the DNA seminar will focus on the lower part of the body. Special attention will be given to the muscles of the lower body, their organization according to the Jing Jin (tendino-muscular channels), and how to use distal needles to effectively treat pain in the muscles of the lower body including the lower back and abdomen. Mr. Doane is an expert at body imaging and will reveal all the major imaging techniques he uses in treating pain. This seminar is not an academic seminar, but a detailed description of how to effectively treat pain in a real clinical setting using a method which boasts a 90% success rate. Live demonstrations will be part of the seminar. Upon returning to their practice, participants will be able to use this DNA system to immediately improve their clinical success.

Course goals

Practitioners will receive the complete outline of how to treat pains, numbness as well as other musculoskeletal related problems. We will systematically cover the lower body (abdomen, lower back, thighs, lower legs, ankles and feet)

DAYS 3 + 4: DNA and the treatment of internal diseases:

Robert Doane will teach the participants the essence of Zhang Wei Yan’s pulsynergy system. This unique, highly structured pulse-diagnosis system allows you as a practitioner to diagnose TCM syndromes as well as bio-medical conditions purely by the pulse within less than a minute. Zhang Wei Yan, (in the US mainly known as Jimmy Chang) - for the first time in Chinese medicine history -has developed a pulse-diagnosis system that is able to assess bio-medical conditions. Due to its highly logical structure it is very easy to learn and integrate in your clinical practice. You will be surprised how much and moreover how precise you will be able to diagnose western medical conditions after implementing the pulsynergy system  into your practice.

Robert has more than 12 years clinical experience with puslynergy system and has further developed it according to what has proved to be clinically most relevant.  We are lucky to have him brief us thru the most commonly seen pulses and their meanings.  

In the afternoon participants will have a hands-on workshop to practically implement the knowledge learned in the morning. There will be case-studies with internal diseases that first will be diagnosed using the pulsynergy system and later on Robert will treat them with acupuncture. This is the first time Robert Doane is teaching publically how to treat internal diseases with acupuncture based on pulse-diagnosis!

Robert will also briefly discuss herbal formulas and herbal strategies for the case studies and participants will receive the complete outline of which pulse is treated by which formula. 

Course goals

After treatment Robert and the group will reassess the pulses of the case-study participants as an immediate and objective (independent from patient’s subject feeling and judgment) tool to evaluate treatment efficiency/correct treatment.

After completing this seminar, participants will:

  • Have the complete outline of how to read pulses according to the  pulsynergy system
  • Have learned the entire system of how to treat internal diseases with acupuncture based on the pulses
  • Have the complete but brief outline of pulse-diagnosis based Chinese herbal formulas

Addressing ethical issues arising in clinical practice: A workshop for complementary medicine practitioners

A one day workshop presented by leading Australian researchers, A/Professor Sheryl de Lacey, Flinders University, and Professor Caroline Smith, University of Western Sydney.

Ethical principles of health practice in the CM field require practitioners to:

  • help patients make appropriate health care choices (respect autonomy);
  • direct patients to safe and effective treatment options (beneficence),
  • promote good and act in the patient’s best interests,
  • and to avoid harm (non maleficence).

This workshop will discuss these basic ethics principles and their relationship to professional practice. The workshop will address current issues in clinical practice including:

  • advertising and the concepts of transparency including setting realistic expectations about the effectiveness of treatment, misinterpretation of research information, truthfulness and patient trust,
  • working with vulnerable populations and the relationship to duty
    of care, and
  • professional responsibility including realistic goal setting and
    scope of practice.

The workshop will involve theory and practical material including case studies, and group discussion of hypothetical cases. Completion of the workshop will further develop practitioners’ awareness and understanding of ethical practices in contemporary health care and help them develop greater confidence when dealing with ethical challenges that may present in practice.

Building (Geo)Biology: Start addressing the environmental health burden now.

Geovital Academy 2.5 Day Workshop. Held in Melbourne with discounts for interstate students.

Geovital Academy is a Naturopathic Clinic in Sulzberg, Austria, which teaches doctors, therapists, architects, builders and anyone else interested how to conduct their style of home assessment and be able to consult on healthier radiation free living and building. Exposure to domestic radiation from sources like mobile phone towers, internal wiring, smart meters, cordless technology, power supply cables and excesses of natural radiation (Geopathic Stress)is an underestimate health burden (see research ). Geovital was prompted decades ago to investigate and develop solutions for this in order to move patients through therapy resistance and past chronic complaints. (see videos )

You can learn how to conduct these assessments for your own use, to complement what you already do as a health professional, or as a stand-alone business. If you choose to work with us, your local Geovital office will support you with more in depth knowledge where needed, supply the shielding solutions you recommended and the back up support directly to your clients. We can talk to your client’s electrician and trades people when needed so you don’t have to. You remain the consultant, charge whatever is fair for your time and receive a share of the profits on the products used.

AU$675 incl GST. Included manual, assessment tools for Geopathic Stress and transport for field trips. Well priced accommodation is available onsite and nearby.

Discounts (may change in near future):
Those travelling from further than 150Km away receive $75 worth of credit to use on Geovital shielding solutions. Those travelling from interstate receive an ADDITIONAL $100 credit. (Yes, $175 in total) See website  for course and discount details.

Prof. Ivan Engler Dr. med. univ.,PhD : "Geopathic Zones…over time they weaken even the immune system. With almost all of my (roughly 300) patients with a cancerous disease, their bed was placed for years on an energetically unfavorable place in a Geopathic Zone."
