    This session contains two parts, starting with theory of channel palpation; and, then, in the second half, a practical session on channel palpation.

    Dr Keown learnt the basics of channel palpation from the late Prof Wang Ju-Yi in China in 2014 and has practiced it on every patient since. Channel palpation, in Dr Keown’s opinion, is the single best diagnostic tool in the acupuncturists toolbox and using it like learning to see.

    The Theory of Channel Palpation

    In this first half Dr Keown explains the simple theoretical basis for why channel palpation can tell us the state of the organs. He will then explain the theory behind the commonly encountered channel changes. Finally, he will discuss how he incorporates channel palpation into his clinical practice to guide and validate point selection.

    The Practice of Channel Palpation

    The practical half will involve palpating the arms, legs (below the knees and elbow) and the back. 

Delegates will be encouraged to palpate each others channels as Dr Keown discusses the ways in which he palpates the channels and common findings with their clinical relevance. The ambition for this session is that delegates will leave with a simple practical understanding of channel palpation that they can then incorporate into the acupuncture practice.

    As with all his sessions the talk will be sprinkled with clinical examples and tips to hopefully make you a better acupuncturist.
