ROOT AND BRANCH TECHNIQUES
with Dennis Willmont

Saturday-Sunday, January 26-27, 2018
10:00 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.

This course shows how classical Five Phase relationships can be applied to both Tonification and Dispersion treatments in acupuncture to produce a more dynamic result.  These treatments can take the form of either One Needle, Two Needle, or Four Needle techniques and form the basis for the more sophisticated use of the Root and Branch Treatments that follow.  

To show how the One Needle Technique can be used in Root and Branch Treatment, forty-four different symptomatic treatments are examined from the perspective of integrating TCM, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese styles of acupuncture.  These perspectives include the Five Phases, the energetic functions of the points, and the meaning of the pointnames for each treatment.

This course covers the following:

  1. Introduces the Five Phase relationships of the acupuncture points on each of the Main Meridians.

  2. Details how this basic understanding can be used to form the classical Inter-Phase relationships to connect the meridians as a whole.

  3. Shows how these relationships can be applied to the One Needle, Two Needle, or Four Needle techniques.

  4. Describes the importance of Root and Branch Treatment that is necessary to reach the Three Levels of Healing that makes acupuncture so important and unique.

Dennis Willmont, Lic. Ac., is an accomplished Author, Acupuncturist, Shiatsu Practitioner, Chinese Herbalist, Essential Oils Practitioner, Macrobiotic Counselor, and Way of Life Counselor.

Dennis has more than 40 years of experience with the Dàodéjīng – a classic Chinese text that has been a source of inspiration for Daoism, Buddhism, Confucianism, artists, poets and healers.  He has been practicing Shiatsu, Acupressure, Tàijíquán, and Daoist meditation since 1971, and Acupuncture since 1976.  He graduated from the first class at the New England School of Acupuncture (NESA).

He has also studied Wu style Tàijíquán with Li Li-ta in San Francisco and Yang style with T.T Liang and Yang Jwing-ming in Boston where he has earned the rank of assistant instructor as well as Xingyi and Baguquan with Liang Shouyu.

A true pioneer, in the 1970’s Dennis created and taught the first 500-hour program in Shiatsu/Acupressure in North America, before the American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia (AOBTA®) existed.  He is an AOBTA® Certified Instructor and Honorary Member.

In an attempt to share his vast knowledge with colleagues and students, Dennis Willmont has written ten books on acupuncture and natural healing, several of which have been used as textbooks in educational institutions.  Currently, he is working on completing Volume Two of the five volume series on the Dàodéjīng and how it relates to the Three Levels of Healing in acupuncture.

In addition to his rigorous writing schedule, Dennis maintains a practice in acupuncture, Chinese herbs, whole foods dietary practice, and essential oils in Marshfield, Massachusetts.

His books are used by acupuncturists, teachers, and acupuncture schools around the world.
