The Bright and the Dull:
Eye Observation for Saam Acupuncture
Observation is a key technology of our low-tech, sophisticated medicine. Recognizing the level of brightness or dullness in the eyes is critical to accurately diagnosing the San Jiao/Liver balance in Saam.
This very practical class will define what bright and dull mean specific to the Saam tradition while helping you weed out factors that are commonly confused for these qualities.
Reviewing over 50 pictures of eyes that Toby has graded for brightness and dullness will allow you to calibrate your observations skills with his. Many Saam practitioners haven’t been able to follow Toby in the clinic and see what he sees. This class bridges that gap and will immediately improve your clinical prowess.
In this real time event we will discuss
- Provide definitions of eye brightness and dullness specific to the diagnostic system of the Korean monastic tradition of Saam acupuncture
- Identify the factors that are commonly confused with eye brightness and dullness in the practice of Saam acupuncture
- Practice identifying eye brightness and dullness by comparing and contrasting photographs of eyes
You’ll have lifetime access to the recording of this Qiological Live seminar, plus a detailed PDF discussing eye brightness or dullness from the Saam tradition

is what is in front of your eyes"
