Course in Nei-Jing and Selecting Treatment Points

Course One:
Implications of the Yellow Emperor's Classics for
Selecting Treatment Points in Acupuncture.

Selecting treatment points in acupuncture is an important step toward success in clinical practice. The Yellow Emperor's Classics of Internal Medicine (Nèi Jīng), including Líng Shū and Sù Wèn, contains many important statements that have implications for selecting treatment points in acupuncture. The purpose of this course is to investigate the contents of this important topic. The following are a few simple examples that demonstrate such implications and give you a glimpse of the contents of this course.

By the time you finish this course, you should be able to prescribe treatment points in your clinical practice with confidence.

This course will present a few dozen implications of the Yellow Emperor's Classics for Selecting Treatment Points in Acupuncture.
