Tang Dynasty Acupuncture


In the study and practice of Chinese medicine, Acupuncturists are often not aware that they are utilizing acupuncture points differently than when the points were first being used and that that use was based on the historical context of the time. While an Acupuncturist today may use a classical protocol, often the properties and functions of the acupoints are described within the context of modern times.

The intention of this class is to familiarize students with the different thought processes associated with significant periods of Chinese history and how such historical times impacted the development of acupuncture point energetics and treatment designs.

In this three-day class, Jeffrey Yuen will survey the Tang Dynasty for its impact on specific Chinese medical modalities while taking into consideration the political, social, and economic factors of this time period. The Tang Dynasty was a golden period in Chinese history and development characterized by reform, innovation and advancements with a pervading spirit of intellectual exploration that had a significant impact on the development of Chinese Medicine. We will explore the use of acupuncture channels and major point energetics from the Tang Dynasty perspective so we may better understand the context of the development of treatments.
