LingShu Chapter 75 "One who uses needles, must first examine the repletion and vacuity of Jing Luo, palpate and follow it, press and pluck it, observe its responsive movement, then obtain it and come down on it". This passage is the origin behind the popular notion that palpation is the single most important assessment for acupuncturists. Unfortunately, little training is devoted to developing this fundamental skill within the standard curriculum. The instructor will cite evidence from the LingShu to demonstrate channel plucking is in fact neurovascular bundle palpation. Attendees will be able to palpate the physical (not energetic) existence of channels for the first time. Note: the palpation taught has no relationship with Wang Ju-Yi’s work: Applied Channel Theory.
During TCM education, our mentors indoctrinate in us that intention and DeQi sensation are the secret to effective acupuncture therapy. Generally, students learn that DeQi sensation is a dull feeling experienced by the patient and a grasping feeling perceived by the practitioner. Dr. Chiang will teach that each acupoint requires its own specific intention which emits a distinct DeQi sensation unique to that acupoint alone. The secret lies in the knowledge of each unique neuro-anatomical target deep to each acupoint. This understanding allows one to predict and confirmed distinct DeQi sensation based on specific paresthesia and/or motor activation that is reproducible from patient to patient. This introductory workshop will help you appreciate the seamless relationship between channel pathways, the peripheral nervous system, needle technique and DeQi sensation.
