The Importance of Qigong for Acupuncturists and T.C.M. Practitioners
By David Lloyd, R.Ac., R.TCMP
If you practice Acupuncture, you should include Qigong in your daily routine. The classic texts of Chinese medicine often speak of the importance of the mind, intention, and spirit for the success of acupuncture treatment. Establishing a consistent Qigong practice can help focus our spirit and direct it toward improving both our health, as well as the health of our patients.

Hacking Chinese Medicine Webinar Series With Janice Walton-Hadlock, DAOM, L.Ac.
Hacking Chinese Medicine Class 8: Channel Theory Basics and a Case Study provides an introduction to some of the electromagnetic properties of fascia, and why western researchers are now suspecting that electrical flow in fascia corresponds with the “mysterious meridians of Chinese medicine.” The case study demonstrates using channel theory to track down the very unexpected multiple channel blockages causing the patient to have thirty years of chronic migraines, weakness on one side of her body, and why her knee, ankle, neck, and 6th rib on her right side were always “popping out of place.”
