The Yang of Sleep: Using the Yang Qiao to Treat Insomnia

This course will explore the functions of Yang qi, especially Wei qi, in healthy sleep. Sleep is dependent on a healthy heart and the appropriate state of Yin. If we practice good sleep hygiene and address our lifestyle choices many sleep problems will resolve. However, some sleep problems are very serious and life-long. To address these types of insomnia we may need to rectify the nature of wei qi before we can fully access Yin.

  • Participants will review good sleep hygiene to reduce external stimuli.
  • Participants will learn the pathway points and functions of the Yang Qiao.
  • Participants will explore treatment strategies for the Yang Qiao & insomnia.
  • Participants will learn points that open the Pericardium loop to free emotional constraint and allows the Wei qi to internalize at night.
