Course Overview
This one-hour presentation begins with the basics of Classical Five-Element Acupuncture practice, including diagnosis of the elemental Causative Factor and the various energetic blocks that must be identified and resolved for any treatment to be effective. The presentation discusses some of the most powerful spirit points on the whole of the body. Featuring beautiful images from nature and from the worlds of fantasy and mythology, Neil explains the uses of points from the upper Kidney chest region, outer Bladder line on the back, Conception Vessel (Ren), and Governor Vessel (Du). These very special points provide gifts to the minds and spirits of patients that cannot be accessed by any other meridians, and can be conjoined with points of any element.
Objective
  • To learn how treatments are strategized in the Classical Five-Element tradition.
  • To learn how to select points to reach the needed mental and spirit levels in a patient by understanding the Spirits of the Points.
  • To learn the spiritual connotations and uses of specific points on each of the 12 meridians, the Governor Vessel (Du), and Conception Vessel (Ren).
  • To provide an overview of the concepts that will be covered in the series, 'Spirits of the Points,' consisting of 6 sessions.

    Javier P.- Australia

    Neil is a very good speaker and does an excellent job of articulating the information. It can be confusing, but he does a great job of getting to the point, but also explaining the varied nuances of each point. I have a much clearer understanding of how I could use these points.
