Acupuncture points each have a name, a history, and a particular meaning and energy. This course examines the name of the point, its relationship to the elements, to the official (organ system), its location and its relation to the overall context of the patient. Class includes discussion, meditation, art and poetry.
Students will gain a deeper and more personal knowledge of, and relationship to the energetics of particular meridian points. They will increase their skills in choosing points which will support the patient‘s energetic constitution and their psycho/ spiritual well being.
