This Workshop is Module 2 of Wang Ju-Yi's Applied Channel Theory!

Applied Channel Theory (經絡醫學jīng luò yī xué) is an approach in Chinese medicine rooted in the dual research threads of classical texts and modern clinical application.

Description:

This course will combine online lectures with in-person palpation classes to introduce Dr. Wang Ju-yi’s clinical application of the different acupuncture point categories. From Dr. Wang’s clinical experience, he commonly focused on using the different point categories to treat the majority of his patients. A strong foundation in point theory helps clinicians when deciding on which points to select for treatment. In addition, through an understanding of this theory, different point combinations can be used to achieve better results. However, in order for the treatment to be effective, accurate point location is essential. This course will cover two main aspects of acupuncture points: point theory and the structure of points (which includes the palpation of these points).

The online course will focus on point category theory. It will cover Dr. Wang’s understanding of the main point categories: yuan-source, luo-collateral, xi-cleft, five transport and eight extraordinary vessel points. Points that were most commonly used by Dr. Wang will be introduced, including his most commonly used point combinations. Clinical cases will be presented to help understand the use of these different point pairs.

The second part of the course will be a three day in-person class in Toronto. Emphasis of this class will be on learning how to palpate for the location of over 100 acupuncture points according to Dr. Wang`s locations, which are more precise and often different from the standard locations. Students will learn that each point has its own unique structure, and that in order to locate each point, they have to be carefully palpated. Most students will report after the course that their “de qi” sensation improves after using these locations, and therefore, their clinical results also improve.

This course complements students who have attended previous courses on Applied Channel Theory, especially on channel examination. When Dr. Wang’s point locations are more accurately located, this will also further improve one’s channel palpation skills, as the channel pathways will become clearer.
