This introduction to Applied Channel Theory and channel palpation, pioneered by Dr. Wang Ju-Yi, explores the detailed model of the six channel system, and theories of qi transformation which may result in channel changes. These provide a new way of understanding Chinese medicine physiology and pathophysiology.

We will go through the principles of Applied Channel Theory step-by-step following the ideas presented in Jason Robertson's textbook. At every point it will be backed up by practical exercises to firmly ground the theory in the diagnostic palpation of the channels.To read testimonials about this course from previous participants, please see below.

Attendance on this course will qualify graduates to attend future advanced workshops with Jason Robertson or Jonathan Chang.

We offer monthly palpation tutorials as a follow on to this class.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Dr. Wang's therory related to Tung and Tan styles?

In a word: "no". All three of these teachers did emphasise the need for palpation of channels and used ideas that relate to the six channels (Taiyang, Shaoyin etc.) but Dr. Wang's approach contains a theory base very much in line with classical Chinese Medicine, whereas Dr. Tung (and Dr. Tan whose work was based on Dr. Tung) has a different lineage of thinking.

Can you teach a course where I am based?

Yes we can. With about a 6 person minimum we can come to you with a similar cost stucture to the courses quoted above.

What if I am a shiatsu practitioner?

You may well be able to join our courses. If you have a reasonable TCM knowledge you should be fine with any.
