Have you ever wanted to understand the foundations of traditional Chinese medicine using modern scientific research? Have you ever decided to start a Qigong practice, but didn't know where to begin? Do you want to experience an authentic Qigong lineage, backed by modern science?
If so, this is the course for you.
In this course's theory section, you learn modern science behind how our bodies create and circulate energy. You learn how our three Dan Tian generate and store energy. You learn the contemporary anatomy that validated the presence of the acupuncture channel system. You learn how modern research explains the ancient concept of Jing (Essence), Qi (Energy), and Shen (Spirit). You also learn the fascinating science behind the Qigong mindstate of Ru Jing, and how modern science has proven the link behind how our minds connect to the environment.
In this course's practical section, you learn about the fundamentals of proper Qigong posture, the three methods of proper Qigong breathing, and several basic exercises that help you create more Qi. Along with generating more Qi, you also learn how to move Qi and increase your Qi's power.

The chief feature of Dr. Manaka's protocols is the ability to treat the constitution of each patient regardless of complexity of symptoms.
One of Manaka's greatest contributions to acupuncture was his development of the X-Signal System model and its relationship to meridian treatment. Dr. Manaka also formulated the Octahedral Theory of Structure-Function Regulation: This refers to the ancient yin-yang categorizations of the body into antagonistic halves, for example inferior-superior, anterior-posterior. Examples of this ancient categorization have appeared in medicine and biology.
In this talk I will present an overview of his work and methodical treatment plan. He was able to bridge the world of Quantum Physics with Traditional East Asian Medicine and find a common language for East and West.
Topics we will cover include:
Background of Dr. Manaka;
History of the Toplogy Association in Japan and the Plus-Minus School;
Information Theory & General System Theory as it relates to Heaven Earth Person and disease;
The X-Signal System as it relates to Qi/Ki;
Yin-Yang Topology as it relates to the Octahedral model of the Extraordinary Vessels;
Isophasility and the Five Elements;
The use of polarity tools such as the Ion Pumping Cords and Triple By Pass Cords;
The use of SSP's instead of needles;
Diagnosis of the Hara/Abdomen for selection and differential diagnosis of the Extraordinary Vessels;
Dr. Manaka's Mu Points;
Dr. Manaka's 5 Step Protocol

A review and discussion on the use of the 8 Extraordinary Meridians in veterinary acupuncture. The 8 Extraordinary Meridians allow us to access problems at a Yuan Qi level, where many chronic medical problems reside. Although we are all taught about these channels in our basic acupuncture course, often there is confusion about how to use these channels in a clinical setting. This course covers both what is taught in the basic acupuncture courses and what is needed for more sophisticated use of these channels. We cover the functions and clinical application of each of the 8 Extraordinary Meridians. We also cover potential modifications of opening and closing points based on anatomical differences between bipeds (humans) and quadrupeds (most of our patients).
This course is suitable for preparation for advanced veterinary certification exams such as the FAAVA (Fellow of the American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture) exam.
