The Art of Needling with Qi - Level 2: Intention and Treatment

Date(s): 28 - 29 March 2020

Time: 10am - 5pm

Eligibility: Qualified Acupuncturists

Venue: College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, Reading

 This course advances your needle technique. You will learn qigong exercises to develop your ability to move qi in ways that are relevant to individual patients. 

 The needle skills covered in Level 1 will be reviewed and deepened. 

You will also learn to:

  • Know clearly when you have obtained deqi
  • Assess how your patients’ qi  is moving within a point.
  • Use only enough of your own qi as is needed to ‘catalyze’ the desired movement of your patients’ qi
  • Assess, by feeling qi, when a treatment is complete
  • Continuously return to your neutral qi-sensing state to prevent burnout

Bill will be assisted in this seminar by John Hicks, Angela Hicks and Kim Chan.

Prerequisite: Must be an experienced acupuncture practitioner and have completed ‘The art of needling with qi level 1: point location and needle insertion’.
