"when you have fully grasped the principles of the three yin and of the three yang channels, you will then know which channel and organ is the primary and which is the secondary, and you will be able to translate the transmutations of disease among the channels"
Neíjing, Chapter 79
No memorization, no empirical explanations, just logic. For too long, meridian theory has been taught as some mystical approach without a basic logic. In this course we break down meridian theory to its basic components and construct it in a logical and understandable way. Why are the meridians placed where they are? How was the Biorhythm clock created and what is its purpose? What do the Chinese names really mean and how can they help you understand the placement and function of each meridian? These are some of the questions that this course will focus on. By the end of the course the you will have a clear understanding of the placement, timing, and circulation of meridians and will also gain insights into how all the various modalities of acupuncture can be linked together through understanding the meridians.
The flow of meridians was first described in the Spiritual Pivot Chapter 10 giving a specific order in which the meridians follow from one to the other. This order is often also referred to as the Chinese biorhythm or Chinese clock. Its uses are often found in Five Element acupuncture to suggest when is the best time to treat a particular meridian and other styles such as Tung and Balance Method where it is applied to balancing various meridians. It is rarely used in its capacity to treat the symptoms that can appear along the meridians themselves and their connections to other meridians. The aim of this course is to give a different approach to the use of entry and exit points to treat problems of the thorax and the face. This is to be done by looking at the pathways of the meridians, where the meridians begin and end according to classical texts, and using the relationships of the Chinese biorhythm clock to treat the affected areas.
Entry and exit points have been taught for years in the acupuncture colleges without any clinical use attached to them. This simple but powerful technique of imaging the thoracic and facial regions and using the associated entry-exit points according to the law of midday-midnight provides a clinical use to this often forgotten part of acupuncture theory. A safe and effective technique that permits instant verification by the patient and gives long-term benefits is the goal of any treatment and this system fulfils all these requirements
Use the face to treat the thorax – use the thorax to treat the face. How is this possible and why does it work?
There are many reasons for these two areas to have interactions with one and other. All yin meridians either start or end in the thorax. All yang meridians start or end in the face. There is the image that is similar. These are just some of the reasons this works. In this course we will learn to use the entry and exit points coupled with the theory of midnight and midday to treat patients who suffer from any affections that can be found in the face and the thorax such as headaches, sinus problems, earache, tinnitus, facial paralysis, palpitations, oppression in the chest, asthma, shingles in the rib cage.
