Chinese Medicine In this talk, Judith Hughes will discuss Eastern Medicine practices at the Gualala Arts lecture on Monday, March 16, 2009.

Traditional Chinese medicine has long been a mystery to many Westerners. This talk by Judith Hughes will offer factual information about some of aspects of this form of medicine, which has been practiced successfully for thousands of years.

First, Hughes will explain some of the philosophy behind Eastern medicine and speak briefly on the origins of that philosophy, including an overview of some of the basic concepts behind it. Then she will demonstrate some down-to-earth applications that anyone in the audience can use. For example, she will show some applications of acupuncture that do not require needles and that may be useful for treating common ailments or for use in an emergency.

After training at Five Branches Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Santa Cruz, Hughes worked in Ukiah with master acupuncturist Dr. Grace Lui, O.M.D., and then at Redwood Coast Medical Services in Gualala. Currently, she is in private practice at the Seacliff Center in Gualala.
