Event description
This two-day class will focus on developing skills in channel examination through interactive lectures and hands-on practice of technique.

About this Event

Information will be drawn from the text Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine the life-work of Dr. Wang Ju-yi (王居易) and the clinical experience of two of his senior apprentices.

Subjects covered will include:

• Overview of classical channel physiology and a discussion of how physiology manifests with specific, palpable changes on the acupuncture channels. The theoretical lectures will provide foundational steps for developing the ‘way of seeing’ physiological process that shaped Dr. Wang’s clinical reasoning.

• Extensive hands-on practice of techniques for palpating each of the twelve major channels. This section of the class will involve hands-on work by the students; palpating channels on each other with feedback from the instructors.

• Demonstration and practice locating major points according to the clinical experience of Wang Juyi. Students will learn how to identify point location by palpating anatomical landmarks and looking for the very precise “space” where needling can be most effective.
