- 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.
