Needling Theory on Depth, Direction, and DeQi

Course Overview

Treatment results from practitioner to practitioner can vary greatly when treating a condition. Even more confounding is when treatment results vary when different practitioners treat the same patients with the same points, but somehow one practitioner’s treatment results in a “so-so” treatment, and the other produces a fantastic result. Dr. Chang will discuss the importance of needle depth, direction, and engaging the De Qi sensation as factors in creating a “Wow” treatment. Based on her years of clinical experience, she will help both new and experienced practitioners refine their needling techniques for more effective and consistent outcomes.

Course Objectives

  • Learn what causes pain in TCM so that you can effectively treat it clinically
  • Learn the following needling techniques: deqi, quqi, liuqi, the concept of heaven, human and earth layers when inserting acupuncture needles, Dao Ma, Dong Qi and Qian Yin techniques

  • Review the TCM time clock and what this can tell us in the patient’s history of their presenting concern.
