Engage with qi in your practice

You will learn how to discover and to engage with practical manifestations of qi. In this class, using the palpatory sensibilities and vocabulary of osteopathy, you will learn how to:

  • Feel the location of core restrictions
  • Use variations in temperature to gain general and specific information
  • Directly feel which points are most available for treatment and their precise locations
  • Directly assess the flow in each channel
  • Feel whether your treatments have produced a clinically meaningful change
  • Use the principle of effortless action (wu wei) in your practice

Techniques such as these allow us to respond more fluidly to the requirements of our patients’ qi in a true dialogue. They are primarily diagnostic in nature and are readily integrated with nearly any style of acupuncture. They provide a means for the fundamental concepts of East Asian medicine to come to life in our hands.
