Advanced Acupuncture 2

Course code

Advanced Acupuncture 2 continues the course of study begun in Advanced Acupuncture 1, with the addition of clinically important miscellaneous disease categories such as musculoskeletal disorders, gynecology and obstetrics, pediatrics, dermatology, and otorhinolaryngology. Emergency disorders will be addressed. Additional material will focus on treatment of classical patterns of externally-contracted febrile diseases from the Cold Damage and Warm Disease schools, as well as treatment of diseases involving the Extraordinary Vessels. This course will begin with a continuation of zangfu pathology. In addition, the course will cover etiology, pathology, and the differentiation and treatment of individual disorders in internal medicine. Organization of the subject matter is based on specific TCM disease categories grouped according to the organ network with which they are most commonly associated. Further differentiation of TCM patterns is presented for each disease category along with treatment principles for each pattern, recommended treatment points, and modalities. In most cases, relevant biomedical information will be presented in order to enable the student to determine a prognosis and identify cases which require referral to appropriate non-TCM practitioners. (Prerequisite: AA1-416)
