Channel Palpation and Diagnosis An Exploration of Classical Acupuncture Technique Presented by Jason D. Robertson (Sydney)

Sat 9 Apr 2011

Channel palpation is a classical diagnostic technique not often taught in modern acupuncture schools in the west. Emphasized in the earliest acupuncture texts (Nei Jing/Nan Jing), palpation of the channels is extremely helpful for confirming diagnosis and refining point selection.

The TWO-DAY WORKSHOP will focus on learning the basics of channel palpation through interactive lectures, case studies and hands-on practice of technique. Subjects covered will include:

> An introduction to the role of the distal channels in classical physiology and a discussion of how physiology
manifests with specific, palpable changes on the acupuncture channels

> 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 Jason.

> An introduction to the acupuncture treatment style of Dr. Wang Ju-yi. This class will introduce a few commonly-used point pairs and clinical application of these pairs. Case studies will be described and acupuncture technique will be demonstrated.
