Distal Channel Palpation For Effective Treatment of Musculoskeletal Complaints

This two-day seminar will focus on generating effective acupuncture treatments for common musculoskeletal complaints. In particular, the class will explore the use of distal channel palpation for determining main channel effected, nature of the involved pathomechanism and likely foci for 'upstream' local needling. The class will involve extensive hands-on practice by attendees and demonstration of live treatments in class.
Based on his experience in a busy private practice in Seattle USA, Dr. Robertson DAHM will cover many of the complaints seen in acupuncture practices around the world. Common complaints in the neck, low back, head, hips, shoulders, knees and elbows will be differentiated and categorized by channels affected. Treatment strategies for each will be described and, in some cases demonstrated. Considerations of other acupuncture approaches (Tung System, Balance System) will also compared and contrasted.
A special section of the class will be devoted to explanations of Dr. Robertson's approach for balancing the pelvis, sacrum and ribcage in a variety of chronic structural disorders. This class builds upon and draws from the life-work of Beijing professor Wang Ju-Yi and the six-channel based diagnostic system described in the text Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine (Eastland Press, Seattle). As co-author of that text and longtime apprentice of Dr. Wang, Jason Robertson will bring a wealth of information regarding conceptions of structural disorders and pain from the perspective of classical Chinese medicine.
