Divergent Channels: Comprehensive Treatment Strategies

  • Eastern Medicinal Therapies Education Center 317 North Main Street Natick, MA, 01760 United States (map)

Often described as mysterious, Divergent Channels gauge how harmonized we are with nature, inside and out. As Divergent Channels pass through the heart, they are uniquely suited to facilitate and integrate exterior-interior relationships – such as our relationship with the external world to obtain and replenish postnatal qi, and the Extra Vessels supplying the twelve main meridians with Qi and Blood, and supporting our genetic heritage.

This class will integrate Divergent Channels with Extra Vessel polarization therapy.  

Participants will learn to cultivate diagnostic skills that engage jing well points, pulse and abdominal palpation. Employing these methods often lead practitioners to a unique treatment strategy that expands the range of clinical application, including addressing disorders of the heart such as manic-depression, insomnia and dream-disturbed sleep.
