It is common knowledge that one plus one equals two. However, one acupuncture point plus another acupuncture point will never automatically equal two therapeutic functions. The points are specific to meridians which represent different stages of Jing Qi 经气 flow and possible network functions with other meridians. Using the classics and Chinese calligraphy, her seminar will first explain the Chinese name, and then the therapeutic functions and meanings of 36-60 common acupuncture points. In addition, there will be practice and discussion of how to formulate acupuncture points effectively using actual clinical cases.
Upon completion of this seminar you will be able to:
- List functions and meanings of the 36-60 points
- Identify functions and meanings of these 36-60 acupuncture points
- Formulate the 36-60 points by using clinical cases in class
- Describe the therapeutic formulations and meanings for clinic efficacy
