Buqi newsletter april 2006

Dear Buqi student,

Here is the latest news concerning the Buqi training.

Buqi treatment techniques

The module Buqi treatment techniques in Bristol is nearly finished – one more weekend in June. There will be another module starting in Brighton in November 2006.
The topic of the weekend in June will be hemiplegia. Hemiplegia is half-sided paralysis caused by brain stroke. In this course students learn to treat hemiplegia by bringing spontaneous movement information into the central channel. The role of the vagus nerve in the regulation of vasodilatation will be investigated and students will learn how to activate the vagus nerve in order to improve blood circulation to the brain.

Some students had enquired into the possibility of changing the topic to digestive disorders rather than hemiplegia. Dr Shen has however decided to keep hemiplegia as a topic because the treatment techniques that we will learn are very important. They can be used for lots of different complaints, especially those related to a diminished movement function caused by a disfunction of the motoric centre. If you can create spontaneous movement in the central channel you can restore movement in the body and limbs. And treating the vagus nerve can be useful for all kinds of problems caused by irritation of the parasympathetic nervous system, such as stress-related complaints.

After 2007, when the current Buqi training will come to an end, Dr Shen will continue to teach advanced Buqi weekends, and digestive problems will certainly be a topic then.

Two extra Buqi courses in South France

There will be two extra Buqi treatment techniques weekends in the South of France: gynaecology, 28 April-1 May, and pediatrics, 26-28 May.

In the weekend on gynaecology Dr Shen will explain how the double vicious circle of poor posture and negative emotions can lead to hormonal disturbances, infertility, menstrual problems, ovarian cysts, sexual complaints, premature menopause, menopausal complaints, uterine prolapse, infection of the mammary glands etc. You will learn how to recognise the origin of the complaint and how to treat it with lasting result.

Also in children’s diseases you can often see how poor posture and negative emotions can lead to health problems. Recurring tonsilitis for instance can be caused by malposition of the cervical vertebrae. It is also important to correct body posture at an early stage in order to avoid problems later in life. Children are also emotionally very sensitive and vulnerable and susceptible to their environment. Chronic or recurring breathing problems for instance can be caused by an accumulation of feelings of sadness. A third important factor with children is diet, as they are in full development.
Buqi gives us soft, non-invasive techniques to support children’s health, to work preventively as well as treat children’s diseases.

Both weekends will take place not far from the airport of Montpellier. There will French translation and English if necessary.

Buqi diagnosis

The Buqi diagnose seminar will take place 11-17 August in Mortsel (Antwerp, Belgium). There is accommodation in a school in Edegem not too far from Mortsel. Sleeping places are limited so please book in time.

Buqi clinical training

There will be a clinical training 21-27 Octobre 2006 in Bristol and 24-29 July 2007 in Brighton. Students are requested to bring patients themselves. Patients have to be able to attend at least twice. Treatments are free. If you already know people who might be interested please forward their names and contact details to Ann Sheldon (for Bristol). For dates of clinical training in Belgium or France see attached diary.

Buqi student database

We would also like to know who of the graduates gives Buqi treatments, so we can put together a database of Buqi therapists and refer people who would like to receive a Buqi treatment. Do you only use Buqi or do you combine it with another therapy? If so, which one? We would appreciate if you could let us know.

Diploma and exams

By way of clarification: in order to receive a diploma you need to:

1. have followed all modules:
- Foundation
- Diagnosis
- Clinical training
- 4 Treatment technique weekends
- 4 Daoyin weekends

2. have completed the exam
3. have completed five case histories.

These criteria are the same for students who followed the shorter training before 1999 and didn’t obtain a diploma. If there are parts that you have missed and you would still like to obtain a diploma you still have the opportunity to do so. You can view all the dates here. And don’t forget, this is the last time Dr Shen will be teaching the Buqi training!

If you would like to do the exam you can do so 23-24 June. Let us know If you would like to take part. We will email you the questions on 23 June (or send them by post beforehand) and you need to mail/send your answers the 24 June. Students who follow the training 2005-2007 can do the exam in 2007.

If you would like to hand in your case histories: you need to complete at least five, and each patient needs to be treated at least three times. If you wish we can send you some guidelines.

If you have any more queries, please do not hesitate to contact us on +32 (0)3 281 0532 or here.

We hope to see or hear from you soon!

Kind regards,
