Learning how to use the 8 extraordinary channels

Inner alchemy:  the 8 extra channels (8ex) provide us with a deep understanding of the process of development and regulation. They are the basis for the meeting of Shen and Jing. All the regulation processes, especially hormonal changes, including fertility and ageing, CNS (Center Nervous System) and many neurological diseases are all related to the 8ex. 

Clinically, they give us the foundation to treat many complicated and common conditions as well as understanding the flow of Qi from our ancestral lineage, prenatal life and daily regulation of Wei Qi and Ying Qi.

  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Hormonal: Hyper/hypothyroid 
  • Growth problem
  • Male fertility prostate problem
  • Female infertility, gynaecology, menopause 
  • Epilepsy
  • Insomnia
  • Allergies

In the workshop:

  • Clinical example of treatment of many diseases such: fertility, growth, hormonal, autoimmune
  • Special pulse diagnostic methods for 8ex
