About the Event

The second weekend in the Bay Area series of the Classical Acupuncture Mentorship will look at the physiology and metabolism of the vital substances, and the relationship between the Shu (or Antique) points and the Complement Channel system.  Understanding the Complement Channel system in this context allows for the practitioner to clearly identify the pathways that pathology has taken into the system, and provides a roadmap that we can confidently use to release blockages that are obstructing the Heart from fulfilling destiny.  Day 2 will cover the Sinew Channels as they relate to freedom of movement and physical expression, as well as moods and the unconscious.
