Course Overview

We are often taught that a symptom is “caused by” some Chinese medical term. Very often, the medical term is simply a translation of the symptom onto Chinese medical code. Knowing this can help both doctor and patient and prevent much confusion. Likewise, books that say “This acupoint ‘treats’ a given problem” or is “indicated” for a given problem, as if all symptoms have the same origin, completely miss the point of how acupuncture works and why each person’s symptoms might have a somewhat different origin, requiring individual-specific treatment. When you get past this sort of point prescription magical thinking and understand what the point indications really mean, you’ll be ready to learn how to choose acupoints that will give brilliant results.

  • The student will learn about cryptic aphorisms, mistranslations, and various error accumulations that have spanned over centuries.

I really appreciate that Janice goes into such detail in terms of translations, how the channel flow can be disrupted in myriad ways including electical circuitry being disrupted by germs.
Janet S. - United States
Janice is an amazingly engaging entertaining presenter. She makes it easy to follow along with her and start think outside of the box of standard TCM teachings. I'm looking forward to watching more lectures in this series and to reading her books.
