Management of Pain with Local Barrier Points

March 3, 2022

The concept of “Barrier points” was originally proposed by some French authors and has proven to be of great efficiency, practicality and simplicity, particularly in the management of pain, allowing for the selection of the most appropriate local points, and reducing the number of points to be used per session.

The Luo-Connecting Channels in Clinical Practice

April 1, 2022

As secondary channels, the Luo complement and protect the primary channels. They regulate the means of human interaction with the world via the 9 portals (openings) and body sections and manage the human emotional responses to the outside changes. The Luo are in charge of the blood capillary systems, playing an important role in blood circulation as well as protection against pathogenic factors.

Insomnia: Diagnosis and Treatment

October 7, 2022

Sleep disturbances, in particular insomnia, have been steadily increasing in numbers, affecting almost 40% of the population and disturbingly a large proportion of children. Sleep is the most representative of the body’s circadian rhythms, reflecting the equilibrium of Yin and Yang and the Five Substances. The Eight Extraordinary vessels, acting as regulators, maintain the inner balance and the adaptation to external changes. Therefore, a detailed assessment of sleep patterns and dreams, can supply an accurate evaluation of a person’s overall psycho-energetic state. In chronic sleep problems, often several TCM patterns are present, making the treatment that much more complex.

The Eight Extraordinary Vessels in Clinical Practice

October 13-14, 2022

The Extraordinary vessels are the foundations of our constitution, linking the inherited energies (Pre-Heaven) with post-natal energetics (Post-Heaven). They are responsible for overseeing the various physical and psychological as well as spiritual developmental stages of the human being according to a pre-established curriculum (Ming). Although their clinical application was only popularised between the 15th and 18th centuries, today they constitute the foundation of Chinese medicine and Acupuncture.  

The Jingjin-Sinew Channels and their Clinical Application for Acute Superficial Conditions and Sport Injuries

Novembre 11, 2022

These are the most superficial organized channels of the body. The have two important functions: mobility and defence. As “Tendino-muscular” channels they are in charge of muscular functions. They also carry and manage the Wei≈ Defensive energy and consolidate the surface of the body playing a fundamental role in our immediate immune responses.

Jing Bie (Divergent channels) and the Windows of Heaven Points

February 16, 2023

These are the least known and clinically utilized of all the Acupuncture channel systems. Yet they play a fundamental role in the energetics of the head by connecting the Zang-fu with the head and supplying the five substances via the “Windows of Heaven” points. Furthermore, they constitute a final line of defence against external pathogenic factors, preventing these from reaching the internal organs. Hence their utility in managing a variety of chronic and recurrent conditions in particular the “Bi≈obstruction” syndromes.

Dreams in Chinese Medicine

Date follows

Dream interpretation has been an integral part of Classical Chinese Diagnosis as described in the Neijing and the Ling Shu. Through dreams, the Hun-Ethereal soul helps release retained pathogenic factors either from external climatic causes, or internal dietary and especially non-expressed emotions. The ancient Chinese understanding of dreams combined with modern concepts of neuroscience and psychiatry provide a very powerful diagnostic and therapeutic tool.
