As the interplay between genetic disposition and environment becomes more clearly understood, western science is moving towards personalized medicine. For time immemorial, Chinese scholar-physicians have recognized this dynamic and employed appropriate diagnostic and treatment strategies honoring each individual.

Using “case studies” of patients, we will explore how Chinese medicine physicians think about health and disease, anatomy and physiology, acupuncture and herbs. We will also talk about “convergence” medicine – the existing partnership and forthcoming synergy between eastern and western medicines – and what this means for a patient in the modern medical system.

Britton Mann holds a doctorate in acupuncture and Oriental medicine and is a licensed acupuncturist in Vermont and New Hampshire. He has a spent much of his life studying the healing arts, including a seventeen year study of yoga, Japanese and Chinese martial arts, and qigong. Prior to practicing acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, he was a massage therapist and yoga teacher in Norwich and New York City. He returned to the Upper Valley this past summer after practicing Chinese medicine in Portland, Oregon.
