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.
This two-day class is a rare opportunity to study with one of Professor Wang Ju-Yi's official apprentices in an interactive, hands-on environment. This class will focus on learning the basics of channel palpation through interactive lectures, case studies and hands-on practice of technique. In addition, an exploration of channel-based physiology will be presented from the text Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine.
