Daniel Spigelman spent close to a decade working and studying in China, receiving his Bachelor’s degree from the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine. During this time he had the opportunity to train in depth with many eminent physicians including Wang Ju Yi and Andrew Nugent-Head. He is an inner door disciple of the Zhang Ce lineage of Tai Chi Tong Bei and a 24th Generation Disciple of the Daoist Wudang Pure Yang Sect. He also maintains private practice in Sydney.
This workshop will introduce the theory and diagnostic techniques of Wang Juyi during his 50 years experience in Beijing hospitals, private clinics and research institutes. Channel examination is a classical diagnostic technique not often taught in acupuncture schools in the West including observation, pressing and palpation of pulses and channels to discover various changes that can assist in confirming and diagnosis and selecting points. In addition to channel examination, Applied Channel Theory is a complete system that includes channel theory, channel differentiation, channel selection, the nature of acupuncture points, point selection and location and various methods of channel regulation including acupuncture, moxibustion and bodywork techniques. The workshop will touch on the basic theory involved as well as an interative hand-on component so attendees will be able to apply what they have been taught in their clinical practice.
