Tijdens het congres is er veel aandacht voor de rol van de behandelaar en met name de intentie tijdens het prikken. Hoe cruciaal is die?

During the congress we will highlight the role of the practioner during needling. How crucial is your intention while needling?

The Primary Healer – Intention

The first and foremost priority of a Chinese Medicine practitioner (in fact all health practitioners in my opinion) as stated in the Ling Shu is Intention. This should clear up many mis-conceptions for those who find a weakness in their diagnostic abilities. In fact, diagnosis falls at number 5. Intention to treat with a clear heart of serving reinstates your skill and ability as a practitioner.

If diagnosis is your weakness, perhaps re-evaluate your purpose as a health practitioner and realign yourself with a clear intention. This statement is not too offend but merely to express the value of being a practitioner.
