About the course:
Huang Di the emperor of all the living; reminds us (when needling) “above all do not miss the rooting of the spirit.” All is taken into account in the needling, whose effect goes straight to the spirit, our true masters. ( from ling shu 8)

This course deals with treating patients with a fewer acupuncture points. Improved
use of multidisciplinary diagnostic considerations and multi-layered point function
appreciation which allows dramatic results with single point therapy.

Clinical cases are presented which have been diagnosed according to Classical TCM. Additional diagnostic disciplines will be discussed including special ancient
observational techniques for evaluating the Shen, understanding the innermost core in order to uncover the true imbalances which are the cause of the symptoms and signs.

These approaches include Five Elements, Stems and Branches, Japanese schools of
thought and ancient medical texts.

Chinese Medicine utilizes the patient’s own healing abilities to cure himself. The more precise the diagnosis, the better we can enhance the patient’s strengths and potential to harness his self healing capacity and achieve a cure.

The closer we approach the patient’s core self, the fewer points we need to achieve
this end. In a similar fashion, fewer points are needed for cure as our understanding of the energetic characteristics of each acupuncture point increases.
Ideally as well as practically, we are able to achieve “one point” therapy. The concept of “oneness” is deeply embedded in classical Chinese thinking in the form of Dao.

In this course there will be presentation of clinical cases, new approach to diagnosis and a clinical decision making process which helps analyzing the effect of single point accurate needling and being more successful in treating patients.
