of the Five Meridian System
This course is designed for Licensed Acupuncturists who wish to develop their skills in clinical application of the five meridian system of acupuncture found in the classics of Chinese medicine. We will cover the basic theoretical foundation for treatment guidelines involving the Sinew Meridians, the Luo Vessels, the Divergent Channels, the Eight Extraordinary Vessels and the Primary Channels from a classical point of view. Not often presented with a clinical focus, this course will provide the skills to offer amazingly profound and effective treatments for some of the most commonly encountered health issues in your practice today.
We will examine individual cases, outlining treatment guidelines for each individual case in each of the meridian systems. Participants will be offered the opportunity to present cases for our discussion that are current in their own clinic.
