The Dragon's Head Blog: Fung Loy Kok Portugal at NATURALES MEDICINAE Congress
The society in Portugal was invited to maintain a stand and offer a presentation and demonstration in Lisbon on the 27th and 28th of May at the V Congress and Health Expo NATURALES MEDICINAE themed Intervention in Pain: Other Knowledges, Other Practices.
The motto of the event was to make available information on the potentialities and limits of “natural medicines” and to disclose recent studies that evaluate some therapeutic approaches and physical and mental practices of health and well-being, from a perspective of education and promotion of public health. Under the sub-theme Health Practices in Religious and Philosophical Traditions we presented the relevant aspects of our Taoism tradition, international organization and also the recent health questionnaire preliminary findings from Canada in 2016.
Three of our instructors and one assistant were our representatives among more than 90 participants from a range of areas related to neuroscience, nutrition, traditional Chinese medicine, naturopathy, acupuncture, osteopathy, etc.
We had good feedback from the audience and this was an excellent opportunity for us to reach out to different people in a specific context.
