Placing Anxiety Within Six Channel Physiology

Diagnosing psycho-emotional complaints using Applied Channel Theory (經絡醫學 jīng luò yī xué


Psycho-emotional complaints, like any other clinical complaint, can be conceived of as a dominant symptom within a pattern(證 zhèng)of illness. This lecture will describe common patterns of anxiety-related complaints including concurrent symptoms, palpation in diagnosis and useful acupuncture strategies.    The use of a pattern-based approach to describe and treat psycho-emotional complaints will allow for clinical flexibility while providing tools for patient education and empowerment.

Students will learn:

  •       Classical models for viewing emotions within normal organ-channel physiology
  •       Common patterns of emotional disharmony in the modern clinic
  •       Diagnostic differentiation strategies (eg. palpation, observation and questioning)
  •       Useful point pairings for common complaints including specific point locations
