The Ancient Art of Bleeding

The Ancient Art of Bleeding is a cross-cultural modality used from time immemorial, in ancient Egypt, India, the Middle East and throughout all of Asia. In Chinese medicine, bleeding is commonly referred to as: pricking bleeding, micro-puncture, triangular needling or simply, blood-letting. This class is designed to explore: the origins of blood-letting; different styles and forms of bleeding; sterile technique and safety concerns; and to provide instruction on a wide variety of points that are bled for common ailments. Lecture will continue with the theory behind the use of bleeding, including seven distinct functions of bleeding; further safety concerns, including sterilization and the proper disposal of blood products; knowing the laws regarding bleeding; superficial bleeding, like: seven-star hammering; common conditions that are bled; a slideshow of bleeding being done in New Delhi; a slideshow of bamboo cupping being performed in Viet Nam; and a series of movie clips from Susan’s previous bleeding classes, used to demonstrate different bleeding techniques. She will show video demonstrations of as many different bleeding techniques as time allows, including: superficial and deep bleeding, seven star hammering of the toxin areas, bleeding the knees for herpes, bamboo cupping of the spine, DT07 Three Gold bleeding and bleeding the sacrum. Instruction will be given for setting up bleeding techniques, performing the technique and attending to aftercare and cleaning the treatment area. The class begins with an introduction to bleeding techniques, followed by a narrated slideshow from Susan’s 1987 trip to HeFei Research Hospital, in China, with Dr. Miriam Lee, where they studied bleeding techniques with a third generation bleeding expert, Dr. Wang Xiu-Zhen. Susan discusses: sterile technique; different sizes and types of bleeding needles, including disposable hypodermic needle tips and lancets; points that are commonly bled; bamboo cupping; and some interesting case studies.
