Applied Channel Theory 2-day/15 CEU Workshop:
Introduction to Physiology, Palpation and Diagnosis

NOTE: All ASVA members receive 10% off registration (listed on their site as ASOV member)

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. 

Subjects covered will include: 

  • Classical channel 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 the instructors.
  • How to utilize information gleaned from channel palpation to refine and simplify diagnosis.
  • Introduction to the acupuncture treatment style (including point selection) of Wang Ju-Yi.
  • Analysis of treatment strategies and techniques based on channel examination.

About the Instructors: Yefim Gamgoneishvili has been practicing Chinese Medicine since 1992. Since meeting Dr. Wang in 1998, he has continued to study with him (until his recent death) and is currently recognized as one of his senior apprentices. He has organized numerous student trips to Beijing to study this unique approach to Chinese Medicine, and teaches seminars on the subject of Applied Channel Theory and Channel Based Orthopedics in the U.S. and internationally.
