In this abridged advanced course, students will expand their knowledge on the applications of Balance System Acupuncture and discuss a variety of internal syndromes including digestive, respiratory, gynecological and emotional states using “Channel Conversion” and the Yi Jing (I Ching). This class will further explore the relationships of the channels to the Guas of the I Ching and Multiple System balances. By exploring these connections, practitioners will learn how to develop simple treatments that affect the body at a deeper energetic level. The history of Zang-Fu diagnosis used for herbal diagnosis and treatment will be discussed and instruction will be given to teach students how to equate their Zang-Fu diagnosis with a Meridian diagnosis in order to devise effective acupuncture treatments. Finally, there will be discussion on cases of the practical application of Channel Conversion.
PRE-REQUISITE: Single Systems: Balance System Acupuncture Level 1, Multiple Systems: Balance System Acupuncture Level 2.

Don't guess! Don't needle locations that "might" be helpful. Know where the channel Qi is blocked or running amok, and correct it directly! Direct perception of the Channel Qi is one of the most accurate methods of determining the exact location of underlying disharmony, and makes obvious the exact location for needling in order to treat an individual's disease or pain. When you can feel channel Qi directly, you realize the literal meaning of "One channel attacking another," or "The channel diverges," and "Go through, no pain." Learn why in this class. This class will also explain how a cure for an "incurable" illness, Parkinson's disease, was discovered: via detecting a particular pattern of Rebellious channel Qi and realizing that this channel aberration is normal during shock or near-death trauma. Only by knowing where the channel has gone awry can one efficiently, elegantly, be certain of bringing the channel Qi flow back to "harmony," restoring health.
