Seminar description:

Acupuncture treatment is a practical science which through promoting and guiding qi by different techniques tries to achieve the therapeutic effects. 

Dao qi technique originally was described in the Huangdi Neijing as the application of light and smooth stimulation for a long time to guide the channel qi to the sick area. It can be used in wide areas, particularly for chronic conditions, mental cases, sensitive cases, etc.

The workshop is going to explain in detail the anatomic structure, demonstrate and practice Dao-Qi needling technique on the special acupuncture points such as GV16 (Fengfu), GV14(Dazhui), GV9(Zhiyang), GV3(Yaoyangguan), CV4(Guanyuan), CV6(Qihai), BL54(Zhibian), etc. Participants will practice the Dao-Qi needling technique on each other, supervised by the tutor, to gain the confidence in their own practice.
