Channel Palpation and Diagnosis
An exploration of classical acupuncture technique
Jason D. Robertson L.Ac.
Channel palpation is a classical diagnostic technique not often taught in modern acupuncture schools in the west. Emphasized in the earliest acupuncture texts (Nei Jing/Nan Jing), palpation of the channels is extremely helpful for confirming diagnosis and refining point selection.
The three-day class will focus on learning the basics of channel palpation through interactive lectures, case studies and hands-on practice of technique. In addition, an exploration of channel-based physiology will be presented from the text Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine
. Subjects covered will include:
• Classical channel physiology and a discussion of how physiology manifests with specific, palpable changes on the acupuncture channels
• Techniques for palpating each of the twelve major channels. This section of the class will involve hands-on work by the students; palpating channels on each other with feedback from the instructors.
• How to utilize information gleaned from channel palpation to refine and simplify diagnosis.
• Introduction to the acupuncture treatment style (including point selection) of Dr. Wang Ju-yi (王居易).
