Point Indication

Course code

This course is an expanded study of PL1 and PL2, in which students learn the specific categories of point function, principles for composing an acupuncture formula based on commonly-used combinations of points, local-distal point combinations, and points commonly associated with various patterns of disharmony. Each point category and each individual channel will be discussed in depth and information from previous classes will be reviewed. This course represents an important step in the learning process, from understanding point location and indication for each individual point to forming synergistic combinations based on both classical sources and personal creativity to approaching the study of specific disease entities and their treatment which will be addressed later in the program. (Prerequisite: PL2-313)
