This one of a kind program preserves the core values unique to Eastern and Western Medicine by analyzing Chinese medical classics, while citing peer-reviewed biomedical research articles.

The classical point location taught here is based on descriptions from the Ling Shu and Jia Yi Jing (Systematic Classic), which often differs from modern TCM standardized locations. This program will reveal the seamless overlap between classical point locations and the detailed location of peripheral nerve trunks and its branches, whereas many modern locations have drifted away from peripheral nerves as point targets. Together we will rediscover the original intention behind the LingShu and Jia Yi Jing as detailed records of precise locations for stimulating specific nerve branches.

Learning the peripheral neuro-anatomy of classical point locations deepens one’s understanding of channel theory. By developing an appreciation for an integrative Neuro-Meridians concept, students learn to apply an integrative strategy to treat a wide variety of neuro-muscular dysfunctions commonly seen in clinical practice.

Goals and Outlines

  • Understand the similarities between the anatomy of acu-points from classical and biomedical sources for the Torso, Neck & Head.
  • Understand the nervous system to refine intention and needle precision.
  • Learn the reproducible DeQi response for each Torso, Neck & Head point.
  • Learn to treat common Torso, Neck & Head neuro-muscular conditions using an elegant S.M.A.R.T. treatment plan (Sensory, Motor, Autonomic, Radiculopathy & Trigger)

    REPLAY: Neuroanatomical Significance of Acupuncture Points & De Qi Sensation

    Poney's interest in the neuroanatomy of acupuncture points grew out from his fascination with the classical teachings from the Spiritual Pivot.

    In this webinar, you will learn the classical description of JingMai and see those concepts unfold through examples from points like ST-36 and periocular points on the face. You will also learn about the MRI-based scalp acupuncture research that he recently completed. By the end of this webinar, Poney hopes that you will come away with the idea that: As water is to fish, so is neuroanatomy to acupuncturists.


    This is a free webinar for the love of learning.  No CEU / CPD / PDA.
