CM 533 - Acu-Moxa Points III


Credit(s): 2.00

Students study the “extra points,” and apply their knowledge of point location and action to the creation of individualized treatment protocols that consider the use of acupressure and the full array of non-needle techniques, including moxibustion, cupping, guasha, magnets, beads and microneedles. In the second half of the term, students gain a thorough understanding of the Jing Luo system. Students learn about the physiological functions, pathogenic indications and clinical significance of the 12 regular channels, 12 divergent branches, 12 sinews, 12 cutaneous zones, 15 collaterals and 8 extraordinary vessels. Understanding the distribution of all of the sub-channels is intimately related to the clinical application of these theories. Prerequisite(s): CM 523 . Corequisite(s): Concurrent enrollment in CM 534
