Online Acupuncture Course to be Taught Live During a 2-Week China Tour


The online acupuncture course “Meridian Circuit Systems” will be taught live, during the first week of a two-week tour to Hangzhou, China. Scheduled for Oct 10 – 21, 2011 the Chinese medicine tour is approved for 30 CEU’s from the NCCAOM. The event is open to acupuncture professionals from around the world.

Since the release of the book “Meridian Circuit Systems” the accompanying online course has been attracting international attention due to its simplicity in explaining a meridian based approach to pattern identification and treatment. Though the methods explained in the book differ from traditional Chinese medicine and zang-fu theory, the author has integrated TCM with meridian therapies that emphasize the connections between the channels.

In Meridian Circuit Systems, patterns can be identified based on the relationships between the meridians. So for liver patterns that affect the stomach or large intestine, we can speak of a jue yin – yang ming pattern. Likewise, a liver pattern that affects the head, neck, or shoulders is often identified as a jue yin – shao yang pattern. “The main advantage of using a meridian based approach to pattern identification is that it clarifies the process of selecting meridians and points for treatment,” said James Spears, the author of the book and course.

In addition to offering the course online, James is busy organizing his company’s annual tour to China. The event will be held at Zhejiang Chinese Medical University and includes 30 hours of clinical observation and 20 hours of lectures. Though James has organized and participated in many acupuncture tours to China, this is the first time that he will teach the material covered in his book and course in China. “This year I will be teaching Meridian Circuit Systems as part of the China tour. The material contained in Meridian Circuit Systems is new to many acupuncturists, and it provides an easy to use method that can greatly improve clinical outcomes. This material will be a great complement to the clinical studies, and to what the Chinese professors will be teaching.”

In addition to teaching in China, James is also currently developing the second and third series of online meridian therapy courses. A course that deals specifically with digestive conditions is scheduled for release in late July.
