Taught by Jason Robertson, L.Ac.
Based in the teachings of Dr. Wang Ju-Yi, This class will include an overview of classical channel physiology and a discussion of how physiology manifests with specific, palpable changes on the acupuncture channels, with extensive hands-on practice of techniques for palpating each of the twelve major channels. Students will learn how to identify point location by palpating anatomical landmarks and looking for the very precise “space” where needling can be most effective. 15 NCCAOM PDAs pending.
Jason D. Robertson maintains a private practice in Seattle WA USA and is on the faculty of the Seattle Institute of East Asian Medicine (SIEAM). Dr. Robertson studied Mandarin Chinese from the age of 17 and lived in Taiwan for five years before beginning studies in Chinese medicine. A meeting with Beijing professor Wang Juyi (王居易) in 1998 planted a seed of inspiration which led to almost two decades of work translating and teaching what has become known as Applied Channel Theory (学經絡醫學 jīng luò yī xué). This current of thinking within acupuncture was the subject of a recently completed doctorate in clinical reasoning at SIEAM. Along with other apprentices of Dr. Wang, Jason teaches classes on Applied Channel Theory around the world.
