A 57-year-old woman come into the clinic complaining of waking in the night needing to pee; she also has a diagnosis of asthma. Patients often present with multiple symptoms. Dr. Keown discusses his strategies for history taking, formulating a diagnosis, making a plan, and then treating. Dr. Keown's style of practice is heavily influenced by Dr. Wang Ju-Yi and his channel palpation method. He considers himself a student of this method and focuses on exploring people's experience and knowledge of channel palpation. Finally, in the last part of this talk, he discusses how Western medicine strengthens our understanding of Chinese medicine, thereby giving practitioners new ways to explain TCM to their patient population.

You can know exactly where to place acupuncture needles, and why.
Learn to detect, with your hands, the exact location of Channel Qi aberrations - the root of all mental and physical illness. Then discover specific styles of needle insertion that directly restore correct Channel flow at the point of the aberration – as opposed to hit-or-miss, hope-for-the-best treatments. Channel Qi aberrations, classically referred to as “Channel Qi Doesn’t Go Through,” are the energetic drivers behind all health problems.
Channel Qi blockages occur in highly specific, individualized locations – and you can detect these with your hands. These blockages force the Channel Qi into aberrant patterns, which then lead to compromised health. Stubborn physical or emotional blockages are only rarely diminished by distal-point or “indicated point” treatments. But when you breach these Channel Qi obstructions by strategic needling in the exact vicinity of the blockage, instantaneous healing often ensues.
You already have an innate ability to detect Channel Qi. Develop it.
