Acupuncture Online Course – Meridian Circuit Systems – Approved by the NCCAOM for 12 CEU’s
The NCCAOM has recently granted continuing education for 12 credits to an online course based on a popular book called Meridian Circuit Systems. The new course starts by offering unique perspectives on pattern identification as used in Chinese medicine. What makes this course unique is that it teaches a system of identifying syndromes that is based on the various connections between the meridians.
By starting with the traditional Chinese names such as the tai yang and jue yin meridians, a system has been developed that shows how 15 meridian patterns may be identified in clinical settings. For instance, a common meridian pattern found in today’s clinics are what the book calls a jue yin – yang ming pattern. In this type of syndrome liver disharmonies are usually affecting the stomach and/or large intestine.
While the yang ming meridians and organs are often affected by the jue yin, the yang ming also pairs with the tai yin meridians of the lung and spleen. In clinic it is important to differentiate between a yang ming – jue yin pattern and a yang ming – tai yin pattern.
Though this is a different way of thinking about syndromes, the online acupuncture course also teaches how the traditional zang-fu patterns pertain to the meridian based patterns. For instance, liver stagnation can be related to various meridian based patterns. When liver stagnation affects the stomach and large intestine a jue yin – yang ming pattern may be identified. However, if the liver is affecting the head, neck and shoulders it is better to use the jue yin – shao yang pattern to best determine what acupuncture points will be most effective.
