      Channel Palpation and Diagnosis

      An exploration of classical acupuncture technique

      Professor Wang Ju-Yi
      November 17th, 18th 2007. (9-6pm 15 CEUs)

      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 class will focus on learning the basics of channel palpation
      through interactive lectures with a senior clinician from Beijing, 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.

      An introduction to techniques for palpating each of the 12 major channels.
      This section of the class will involve hands on work by the students;
      palpating channels on each other with feedback from the instructor

      a discussion of how to utilize information gathered from channel palpation
      to refine and simplify diagnosis. This will involve reconsidering
      traditional zang-fu (organ) diagnosis in light of new information gathered
      from palpating channels.

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

      About the teacher:
      Dr Wang Ju-Yi is a classical acupuncturist from Beijing. A member of the
      1st graduating class from Beijing University in Chinese Medicine in 1963, Dr
      Wang has over 45 years of clinical experience. After working for 30 years
      treating patients and training doctors in the Kuan Jie Hospital of Chinese
      medicine in downtown Beijing, Dr. Wang has focused in recent decades on
      further linking his clinical approach to classical texts. His lectures thus
      involve a strong rooting in classical concepts which he combines with
      hard-won modern clinical experience. Students leave Dr. Wang's classes with
      techniques that can be immediately applied in their clinics to improve
      clinical results.
