What other practitioners have to say about Sohial's workshop...

Clients with severe emotional conditions DO NOT need relaxation or to CALM SHEN.

This may well be what we are taught or what we think it is what they need because of

their presentation but I assure you after doing this work for many years they need

something else. They need a transformation! Not relaxation.

Here's some questions to think about...

👉 Do you know the true definition of the word emotion?
 👉 Are we born with default emotions?

 👉 What if stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, addictions are the body's intelligent

response to something more profound?
 👉 What does Neijing Su Wen/Ling Shu, Nan Jing,

Dao De Jing have to say about emotions?
 👉 How does trauma affect our body, physiology, personality and beliefs?

👉 How can we help clients release trauma?
 👉 What are the neuroscientific, physiological, psychological, implications with emotional imbalances?

👉 Are there herbs, vitamins, supplements that can offer optimum treatment outcomes?

What are some of the topics covered in this powerful 2-Days:

✅ Intention & Prerequisites of a Healer | The evolution of Consciousness | The integration of Heaven, Man, Earth

✅ The drive of human values | The Science of Pain, Trauma & TCM | Quantum Physics/Healing in TCM

✅ The Organs and Personality Traits | The 3 Levels of Emotional Penetration | The 3 Brains and TCM Model

✅ The Miracle 8 Extraordinary Channels | CCM, TCM & WSM models of Anxiety, Depression, Grief, Anger, PTSD

✅ Psycho-Spiritual Causes of Disease | Full Analysis of 50 Acupuncture Points for Emotional Empowerment

✅ Analysis of Shen, Yi, Po, Zhi and Hun PLUS behavioural implications of the 5 Spirits in Hypo and Hyper states |
And much much more...

Let's explore these topics in more detail...

Quantum Physics, TCM Classics and the 3

Regions of the Brain... 

You will explore a fascinating integration between classical & modern TCM and how the profound knowledge of healers thousands of years ago was and is perfectly aligned with current thoughts in quantum physics and healing.

We also learn how the evolution of the brain is such that it is constantly changing and moulding to help us maximize our purpose and destiny in life. 

The Science and Effects of Emotional Pain and Trauma (TCM and Western Models)...

Starting to explore trauma stemming all the way from utero, through the process of birth and throughout life. You will learn the everlasting

impact of trauma on the body and how we carry these effects in our physiology. You will learn how trauma affects and shifts our personality and decisions throughout life and the many hidden symptoms we carry in our bodies and the overall impact on our (your clients) lives. You will then explore how we can use the understanding of trauma and how to process it, shift it and resolve it and of course release it from the body. We will explore full treatment options that are available with TCM, the 8 extra channels and what western medicine has to offer including the areas of the brain affected and how they characterize changes in our behaviour and decisions.

The Hypo and Hyper states of the 5 Spirits and their implications on behaviour...

We know in TCM that the 5 Spirits (Shen, Yi, Po, Zhi and Hun) have an influence on emotional attributes. But to what extent? How do the 5 Spirits/5 zang organs characterize and shape our personality? How do they influence every characteristic trait and emotional reaction. How does the hypo and hyper states of the Spirits impact our levels of confidence, assertion, trust, building bonds, compassion, obsession, narcissism, resentment, forgiveness (or lack of), drive, sexual orientation, procrastinations, lying, spiteful behaviours, dominant behaviour and submissiveness and so much more. 

An In-depth Analysis of Stress, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Grief, Addictions and so much more...

What if anxiety, depression, bi-polar and addictions are a normal and mechanical intelligent response from the body to help us re-evaluate our past, present and future and our illusive fears and threats? This is a powerful segment of the 2 days as you will learn ground-breaking information that will completely transform what you may currently know about such common emotions and how they impact our mind and body.

We will explore physiological, psychological and pharmacological connections between the body, mind and brain amongst these mental health challenges with an understanding of CCM, TCM and WM models.

The Psycho-Emotional Applications of 50 of the most powerful Acupuncture Points for Emotional Empowerment...

You may know that points clear heat, move stagnation, move blood, expel wind, resolve damp and calm shen. Am I right? But did you know each point has a story? An innate nature? A personality?

This module is by far one of the most loved and interesting segments of the seminar. You will gain a thorough understanding of the psychology of points, combinations, techniques and associations to physiological changes that can bring positive transformations. You're going to LOVE this segment!

What Practitioners Have to Say About

Sohial's Workshops?

Kate Pennington - Registered Acupuncturist, Warrnambool

Sohial goes where few acupuncturists venture - straight to the emotional disharmony that

accompanies many (if not all) clinical presentations. His insight and knowledge into the spiritual aspects

of the points and presenting issues is superb and highly insightful. His ability to describe neurological

links and TCM psycho-emotional analyses of cases are fascinating and inspiring.

It's clear that Sohail has done extensive research and study into the emotional nature of illnesses from

a TCM background. He is very passionate to share his work and help each practitioner to understand

these concepts. If you get the chance to attend one of his seminars I highly recommend it!

Peter Mejia - Acupuncturist, Melbourne

Every year as practitioners we often wonder what course will best advance our practice 

 help us achieve better results. Sohial's psycho-emotional course, is that course! He has created an amazing synthesis of western psychology with a TCM application, which in all honesty is second to none. 

His course will allow you to treat at the level of Shen which I believe is a must for any chronic condition.

 If you want to be an expert you have to learn from this expert.

Hamish Reid - Acupuncturist/Lecturer/Speaker

Sohial is truly the authority in the field of Psycho-Emotional disorders. Not only is his TCM knowledge unparalleled in this area, but his Western interpretation of the emotions and their relationships to 

brain chemistry perfectly meshes the TCM and WSM side of the emotions together. A passionate and clear presenter, Sohial leaves you completely inspired and armed with all the tools you need to tackle the toughest of Psycho-Emotional cases presented in your clinic.

Savoula Zakis - Acupuncturist, Melbourne

I just spent 2 of the most inspiring days learning about psycho-emotional conditions from a true expert in the field. Sohial brought a whole new depth of understanding the emotions in a way I'd never known before and certainly nothing I learnt at uni, or after 16 years in practice from other seminars. 

The integration of psychology, human behaviour and TCM was dynamic and profound not to mention

 the addition of neuroscience and quantum physics. Sohial presents with great enthusiasm 

and humour to make such an in depth topic easy to relate to and understand. 

And here's more testimonials for you...

Sohial brings light to the void of knowledge not often taught at schools. Since his seminars, I have felt the growing need to learn about the crucial connection between emotions and the physical body. 

The topics on which Sohial speaks are captivating, thought provoking and definitely a wayof the future- I just wish I could remember everything he said - my notepad wasn't big enough!. 

With practical examples, exceptional knowledge and a true passion that resonates from his speaking, Sohial is guaranteed to inspire. Guaranteed to inspire you to learn more, to help more people and even to become a better human being yourself! 

- Highly recommended

Emma Snare - Acupuncturist, Sydney

Inspired! Great to attend a presentation that isn’t limiting perspectives to what’s inside/outside the box. Encouragement to look at the piece of art that is TCM and see it as many ways as possible. Great delivery pace and style

Jay - Acupuncturist & Tui Na, Brisbane

Sohial is amazing, so giving with his knowledge. Really easy to listen to. I look forward to attending his course.

Safe travels back to AUS!

Just Fantasic Sohial!

Thank you so much – this combined all my favourite topics – Quantum mechanics, personal development, TCM acupuncture.

Your depth of precious knowledge and ability to translate this into accessible information was excellent – Look forward to doing more of your work!!

Kind Regards,


An extremely well-organised and fascinating 2 days, with a Master Teacher.

To have the opportunity to learn from the deep well at Sohial’s extensive study at this subject has been an absolute privilege.

If you get the opportunity to attend this course, I will heartily recommend it.

- Sharon Keenan

The 8 extra meridians are extremely powerful due to their accessing Q1 at its roots, Jing and Yuen Q1. There is frustratingly little information generally available re: the syndromes associated with their dysfunction or treatment strategies. Sohial Farzam has created a through, detailed and theoretical and practical system which he and his students have proven in clinical practice over many years.

The course is a Godsend to the practicing acupuncturist. A real eye opener.

- Bruce Du Ve

Good speaker, free flow and precise in wording and theory at TCM

Knowledge very deep.

I would like to learn more and definitely will add your available courses out.

One day learning would have been great.

I love the feeling that you “walk the talk”, you’re very authentic for me.

- Linda

Many concepts that are familiar have been presented in a very clear and understandable way and I gained a deeper knowledge.

The topic is extremely fascinating and confirms that this is the right path for my future work.

I haven’t felt bored one moment during those 2 days, thanks to the deep knowledge of the presenter and his enthusiasm for the subject.   I would love to hear more about the subject and would be interested in an exchange with other practitioners in this field.

Thank you so much for 2 very inspiring days.

- Jean Phillippe Riezz

In my daily clinical work as an acupuncturist, I experience bet results by creating emotional moments to transcend trauma. Hereby focusing on the virtue of the corresponding emotion.

This seminar was a big pleasure to understand more about this satisfying week. I feel very thankful (deeper understanding).

- Arturo Fasciato

Great now, Sohial interconnects the east and west. Knowledge of psychology. I appreciate the view of the 8x of Sohial. Thanks! Very inspiring :) I want to know and learn more!

- Nancy Ribi

The seminar was interesting with lots of information. I have lots of patients with mental health issues and this course give more tools to better be handle my patients.

I had very difficult case with mental health issues because I share my practice with others psychologist and psychiatric doctors and get most of their difficult patients. After this seminar, I will have more information on how to treat them.

Thank you for the great seminar and I would recommend this seminar to other practitioners.

- Sandrine Ngo

I appreciate the rich information and personal experiences you shared with us, although I felt sometime slightly overwhelmed.

As an experienced practitioner in Chinese Medicine in a clinic for mental health I am happy to work in a treatment concept. The deep knowledge I gained in these 2 days is a treasure for me and my patients.

As a Qi Jong practitioner I would have appreciated to free sometime the Qi for the head and have some small breaks in movement.

I would recommend this seminar to experienced practitioner.

Thank you!

- Plusi Judith

Attending the Transcending Trauma: “The Road to Emotional Empowerment” seminar was an extraordinarily inspiring experience. I evoked a send of nostalgia reminiscent of my time in Sydney, where I encountered similar exceptional practitioners. Sohial Farzam’s depth of knowledge in both CM and Science is truly exceptional. His extensive study, eloquence, and profound understanding, enriched by a plethora of literary works, create an unparalleled learning experience. As a seasoned traditional CM practitioner, his ability to encapsulate existing knowledge into a comprehensive view, elevating it to a new dimension. (Vibration, string theory) within CM, is remarkable, Farzam’s approach transcends the traditional boundaries of Chinese medicine, offering a captivating perspective on Emotional Empowerment. It is and was a true blessing to listen to his insights shedding light, love, shen, and ling on an entirely different facet of his ancient practice.  

Thank you Sohial and keep going.  

- Madeline

The material presented was very interesting and deepened my knowledge.   Thank you, and I hope I can attend more of your classes.  

- Germa Maane

  • Very impressed by your knowledge!

  • Clear structure and language.

  • Nice that you intergrade quantum physics etc


  • Thanks for your openness and personal story-sharing.

  • For me, perhaps a bit less discussion of separate points, more combinations you use in your cases.

Thanks a lot! I enjoyed!  

- Roger

Sohial has a deep understanding about the spiritual, mental and emotional, aka Dr. Psyche. I feel inspired to not only learn more but continue my personal development. My sincerest gratitude for your time, energy & expertise and willingness to share. Looking forward to learning more.

Michael Koda - Acupuncturist, Brisbane

My experience over the last two days has been unbelievable. My personal growth was as fastest as Sohial talks. I would not hesitate to recommend this seminar to any practitioner. It bridges the gap from thousands of years of knowledge to todays society.

The addition of Sohial’s psychological prowess completes the journey. Much appreciatethe experience. Keep up the great work

Grayson Fong - Acupuncturist, Sydney

Brilliant and unique combination of classic TCM teaching and its connection to psycho-emotional roots. A “must know” in everyday clinical practice. Dynamic and well-prepared presentation. 

Thank you. 

Suzanne Black - Acupuncture Student, Melbourne

I was so delighted to be able to attend this seminar. I love Sohial’s work and it was a joy to witness his enthusiasm and passion for his subject, in person.

Sohial is an engaging and enthusiastic presenter. He draws from his clinical experience and personal experience to explain and contextualize the concepts he is teaching. Interspersing some of the more challenging concepts helps to maintain interest and creates levity.

The content of the course surprised my expectations and Sohial’s knowledge is exceptional.

I’m so looking forward to put my learnings into practice and to the next seminar that Sohial runs!

“Sohial – your enthusiasm + passion is a joy to behold”

Thank you,


Fantastic 2 days, so informative and inspiring. So much information presented in a professional and fun way. We learned so much. Thank you.

- Caitriona Mullins

I totally enjoyed this 2-day workshop. I am about to become an acupuncture student and found the content of this course extremely inspiring + loved the way Sohial weaved all the aspects of Mind/Body/Spirit together at a very high level and also the neuroscience of how the western model maps similar concepts.

Sohial is a great presenter/teacher with in-depth knowledge of his field with so many other systems to draw on. He has done so much personal development work, his spirit, enthusiasm and passion shines through. I have learnt so much and am looking forward to start my acupuncture training having this foundation and overview.

- Catherine Weebly

It’s a pleasure listening to you, very active, joyful and enthusiastic. I really like your style of teaching, you’re quite fast and you don’t repeat the things few times. I like that.

It would have been nice if you would have talked more about self-cultivation, how to transform negative emotions into good stuff. What can the patient do by himself in between treatments. Sometimes it was hard to understand because my English is not that well, but I highly recommend the course to others.

Thank you very much for your time and teachings. I really appreciate it and I wish you all the best on your life journey.

- Micro Wider

I highly recommend this seminar to other practitioners. Very good guidance, excellent presentation, clear speech, soul and spirit. Congratulations! Personally, I find this topic the most important part in accompanying client/patients/persons (apart from TCM treatment). I always include it in my daily work and also in my personal life, in order to understand who I am, I need to know how I feel. This includes all Sohial is mentioning in this seminar. Thank you for your clarity, in order to feel clearly.

- Rita Streale-Qud

I learned a lot, and the content is really interesting. It would be great for me if we can have one more pause (each time shorter, but more than one).  

Thanks a lot.

- Linxin Zhang

I liked very much how you integrate old Chinese medicine wisdom with “modern problems” we see every day in the clinic. I learned a lot about traditional spiritual meanings of TCM; I like the way you mix cases with theory, it’s a pleasure to listen to you and learn from your experience.

Thank you!

- Sandra De Martin

Thank you. Yes, I would recommend this seminar to other practitioners :)

I liked the way “The Wisdom of Trauma” (and mates movie on trauma) was translated by you in the language and logic of CM.

Appreciated a lot the introduction, the tongue diagnosis and your broad knowledge and interesting and funny way to speak.

I missed the 8 Extras and the pulse diagnosis; I could have spent more time on the 8 Extras only.  

- Nina

The topic of mental and emotional health is extremely important in this time around. Sohial gives an impressive insight in it. It’s a lot of substance in two days, but t definitely makes you wanting to go deeper into the issue.

His message goes way beyond what one expects. His import and to name it and point it out, even it sounds esoteric – it’s not – it’s like how its functions physiological.

Thank you very much Sohial.

Have a safe trip back home :)

- Nina

Yes, I would definitely recommend this seminar to other practitioners.   It is a lot of content for 2 days like the richness I particularly loved all the case studies and great examples of your practice.

Your personal development is very inspiring as well as your background and history!

- Kasir Bigle

A lot of valuable information on this great subject of psychology + emotions.

Sometimes too fast to get it all written down. Voice recording would be great to be able to listen to it again.

I love the subject!   Needling technique is important.  

I would definitely recommend it to colleagues

Thank you!  

- Ilona

Overall, good course, good structure and presentation. I also work with the root. I liked at most the explanation of the tongue, new for me in this way.

The explanations about the diseases – very interesting. Thank you for giving me another perspective on the diseases.

The topic is deep but sometimes too general I missed, the organs in the elements anger will be lived different from liver or gall person. Repression of anger. What happen when we are always in anger?

I missed the difference between feelings and emotions, that would be important to know like anger turns to enthusiasm/optimism and so on!   Thank you for sharing your knowledge.  

- Francesca Bachmann
