Introductory Diagnostics: Facial Diagnosis + Wei-Ying-Jing Pulse Diagnosis- Recorded Workshop

Course Background and Content:

Huang Di asked Qi Bo:
“I have been informed that a good physician is able to diagnose the nature of disease by observing the patient’s complexion, because he is in possession of great vision; that a good physician is able to diagnose the nature of disease by taking the pulse, because he is in possession of divine insight; that a good physician is able to diagnose the nature of disease by questioning the patient, because he is in possession of a cultivated skill.
I wish to be informed: to look at a patient and know the disease, to take the pulse and obtain knowledge of the Qi, to ask about the disease and be very sure of its location, how is that done?”

Excerpt from Huang Di Nei Jing Ling Shu Ch. 4

In the above passage from the Huang Di Nei Jing Ling Shu, one of the most important classical texts of acupuncture, it becomes clear that a masterful application of three of the primary methods of diagnosis: Observation of the Complexion, Palpation of the Pulse and Questioning of the patient together make the physician exceptional in diagnosis.

Prior to attending this short but clinically applicable recorded workshop we ask ourselves:
Is it possible to gain insight into the Qi of our patients (or anyone we come into contact with) through observation of the Spirit (Shen)/complexion and can these insights be correlated and confirmed accurately by pulse diagnosis?

In this recorded workshop, we focused on refining the diagnostic skills of pulse diagnosis and observation of the face, as well as covering the concepts of Wei-Ying-Jing:

  • Wei-Ying-Jing theory in Chinese Medicine is a vitally important method of understanding our patients and ourselves at fundamental levels. During the workshop, Joan Duveen expanded on foundation principles of diagnosis related to Wei-Ying-Jing principles, and taught the Wei-Ying-Jing method of pulse diagnosis (including the  correlation of Wei-Ying-Jing with 3 of the Extraordinary Vessel Pulse patterns) , as well as how to refine pulse diagnosis skills.
  • Facial Diagnosis is an important part of traditional diagnosis, that is not as commonly understood and utilised by practitioners in the current generation. By observing the face, and facial zones relating to specific organ patterns, as well as 5 Element zones, a great amount of information can be picked up that can be correlated with other diagnostics that we utilise with our patients to accurately determine the pattern, to then apply the most correct intervention. During this workshop, Joan Duveen taught facial diagnostics based on the teachings and experience of Dr. J.D van Buren, as well as his own unique experience to provide attendees with instantly applicable methods of facial diagnosis that can be used clinically to assist the accuracy of diagnosis.

Attendees of this recorded workshop will gain foundational theoretical principles and practical methods of facial diagnosis and pulse diagnosis that they will be able to apply instantly in clinic.

“Treat people not diseases” – Dr. J.D. van Buren

“Treating patients using a deep understanding of the application of Classical Chinese philosophy to achieve outstanding clinical results. This is the type of Classical Acupuncture/diagnostics you always thought you’d be studying when you first commenced your Chinese Medicine education…….”

Peter Scarselletti | Director of Qiology

About the Presenter

Joan Duveen

Joan Duveen, born in 1950, originally trained and worked as a physiotherapist in his own private clinic, in a health centre, until 1990. In these years he was also a teacher in anatomy, physiology and massage at a college for physiotherapy.

Joan commenced studying Chinese medicine in 1975. He graduated from the Dutch Society for Acupuncture, Holland in 1982, and he graduated with a B.Ac in 1986 at ICOM Holland and was personally invited by Dr van Buren to study at ICOM in England, where he completed his M.Ac in 1991.

Joan-Profile-1-300x169 Introductory Diagnostics: Facial Diagnosis + Wei-Ying-Jing Pulse Diagnosis- Recorded Workshop

He was a regular staff member at the International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM), UK, for 16 years, teaching Chinese Medicine in years 3 and 4. During these years, and up until the death of Dr. van Buren, Joan was able to study and observe closely with Dr. van Buren. Joan sees it as his task to keep the legacy of Dr van Buren’s work alive. This involves the practical application of Chinese philosophy and the philosophical ideas of the Chinese calendar in the acupuncture clinic, particularly the philosophy of the Heavenly Stems & Earthly Branches.

He is a co-founder of the Study centre PaKua (Studiecentrum PaKua). This study centre organizes post-graduate courses in Philosophical Chinese medicine. After 13 years he resigned as chairman of Study centre Pakua, being convinced that the objectives of the organization continue to be propagated.

In 1992 Joan travelled to China with Dr van Buren and Pauline van Buren to visit the Colleges and hospitals of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Beijing, Chengdu, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

Besides being a practitioner in his private clinic in Holland, he has been an international presenter since 1987 in Chinese philosophy and acupuncture in Holland, England, Germany, Israel, Norway and Poland.

He is specialized in paediatrics (studied with Julian Scott), pulse diagnosis (studied with Dr. van Buren and Dr. L. Hammer and others), acupuncture according to the Five Elements and the philosophy of Stems & Branches, taking into account the constitutional energies by birth, based on the Chinese calendar, and has written several articles on these subjects in magazines for Chinese Medicine.

Apart from spending time with his wife, four children and four grandchildren, and when not teaching, Joan spends time studying Chinese Philosophy, Chinese Medicine, the use of the Yi Jing in the clinic, and keeping healthy with various spiritual and health practices.

As is required by National Law, we disclose that Joan Duveen is not a registered health professional within Australia.

Who was Dr. Johannes Diedericus van Buren?

Dr-Van-Buren-e1441202634243-1024x1024-300x300 Introductory Diagnostics: Facial Diagnosis + Wei-Ying-Jing Pulse Diagnosis- Recorded WorkshopDr. J.D. van Buren (27th Nov 1921- 12th May 2003 | 81 yrs) can be considered to be one of the 20th Century’s most important influences on Acupuncture in the West, who pioneered bringing it to the Western World particularly assisting with it’s educational development in England, Holland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and even Australia. After a very colourful personal history in his formative years, followed by studies in nursing, naturopathy, osteopathy and homoeopathy, van Buren began his personal studies in acupuncture in 1952. Many years later he trained under Dr. Jacques Lavier in England in 1966 alongside contemporary J.R. Worsley, and then continued with further studies in Taiwan under Master Wu Wei Ping in 1968, where he received his doctorate, and later, studied in Korea.

As the need arose, Dr. van Buren taught extensively around the world, and it was said that to observe him in the clinic was an inspirational experience for both students and patients alike. After receiving an original text: “System of A New Philosophy by Dualistic Monism” from Sino-Korean Dr. Chang Bing Li, Dr. van Buren made it his life’s work to preserve and develop “Stems & Branches Acupuncture,” a unique and traditional acupuncture treatment system that was banned during the Cultural Revolution in China. Dr. van Buren founded the International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM) in 1974, which is renowned for turning out some of the most prominent acupuncture practitioners and educators in the world, such as Dr. Leon Hammer, Peter Firebrace, Peter Deadman, Peter van Kervel, Joan Duveen, Giovanni Maciocia and Roisin Golding.

At the time of his passing, Dr. van Buren had practiced acupuncture for almost 50 years and left an impressive legacy that is continued to this day.
