Ancient TCM Qi Circle Movement Theory & Application of Five Shu Points




40 CEU

About the Course

Do you want to learn the logic behind selecting the Five Shu points, rather than memorizing their indications?

The answer lies in the ancient theory of TCM Qi Circle Movement.

The energy of the body, Qi, ascends and descends, floats and sinks. Each TCM organ has its own natural Qi movement: Liver Qi ascends, Lung Qi descends, Spleen Qi ascends, and Stomach Qi descends. Together these Qi movements create the Qi dynamic of the body. If the Qi dynamic is altered this imbalance may lead to illness. Pulse diagnosis is the key to detect the Qi Dynamic, and imbalances can be corrected through acupuncture treatment.

Disease occurs if Qi in the body cannot complete a harmonious circle. To treat disease, we must select the appropriate channels and their Shu points to re-establish the Qi circle. Dr. Ching Ching Chi will teach the TCM Qi Circle Movement theory and how to adjust the body’s Qi dynamic using the Five Shu Points. You will learn how to choose the right Five Shu Points on the right channel to balance the pulse.
