Energetics of Acupoints

ACU111/112

This is in-depth study of the energetic and therapeutic properties of all acupuncture points of the 12 primary meridians, the Governing and Conception vessels, and the extraordinary points. Students learn the therapeutic functions of the acupoints and simple and elaborate acupoint combinations. This course builds on the introduction to the meanings of acupuncture point names provided in ACU101/102 and further explores the naming of the points, in many cases revealing both the therapeutic values of points and their locations. Point categories are covered in detail as are microsystems of the body, including the ear. Forbidden and cautionary points are also discussed.
