An Introduction to Applied Channel Theory: An Introduction to Palpation, Diagnosis and Treatment

with Dr. Jason Robertson, May 28-29, 2022

Workshop Information

Channel palpation is a classical diagnostic technique not often taught in modern acupuncture schools in the west. Emphasized in the earliest acupuncture texts (Nei Jing/Nan Jing), palpation of the channels is extremely helpful for confirming diagnosis, refining point selection, and improving clinical results.

This two-day workshop will focus on learning and applying channel palpation through interactive lectures and hands-on practice of technique. In addition, an exploration of channel-based physiology will be presented from the text Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine (Eastland Press, Seattle 2008).  Students will leave with a greater understanding of classical physiology and diagnostic techniques for evaluating pathological patterns in both internal conditions and musculoskeletal complaints.

Workshop Instructor

Dr. Jason D. Robertson is the co-author of Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine (Eastland Press, 2008) with his teacher Professor Wang Ju-yi (王居易).
