Course Overview
According to Chapter 1 of the Huangdi Neijing Lingshu, the foundation of acupuncture lies not only in the traditional nine needles utilized but also on the cultivation of the skills in needling protocols. Since the needle is perceived as an extension of the hands and its connection to the rest of the body, needling is based on the practitioner's cultivation of their body. This short course will focus on developing the skills that can be refined for the purpose of improving needling protocols.
  • Learn the art and history of acupuncture and needling.
  • Learn how different types of Qi gong can improve your acupuncture practice (including Yi Jin Jing, Wu Qiu Qi and Ba Duan Jin) and which types are best for which conditions.
  • Learn about a Qi gong full body self-massage for bringing Qi from your hands to your body.
