NCCAOM Approved Online Acupuncture Course Meridian Circuit Systems Offers Fresh Perspectives
Licensed acupuncturists can now receive continuing education credits for an online course that is based on the book Meridian Circuit Systems www.meridiancircuitsystems.com. The course and book offer a unique understanding of the acupuncture meridians and patterns that form an integral part of Chinese medicine.
In the online course the author James Spears presents a system of diagnosis and pattern identification that is based on the relationships between the meridians. Though much different than traditional zang-fu methods, the author demonstrates how meridian based patterns of diagnosis relate to traditional zang-fu syndromes.
In this system a pattern such as liver fire can be subdivided into several meridian patterns based on the symptoms that are present. For instance, when liver fire is affecting the head and causing symptoms like headaches and red eyes, a jue yin shao yang pattern could be identified as the major pattern of disharmony. However, if liver fire is affecting the stomach and intestines it would be classified as a jue yin yang ming pattern.
According to the book, there are a total of 15 meridian syndromes that are identified according to the traditional names of the acupuncture meridians. For instance, conditions involving the stomach and large intestine are referred to as yang ming patterns. Similarly, cases that present with simultaneous respiratory and digestive symptoms could be classified as tai yin patterns. Other meridian based patterns that are frequently found in clinic are the tai yin yang ming pattern and the shao yang shao yin pattern.
Throughout the book the author gives the actions, indications and case studies on each of the meridian patterns and also integrates this with zang-fu syndromes. This concludes in a unique and easy to use system that integrates with any style of acupuncture. The advantage of this system is that it allows therapists to make more accurate diagnoses based on whatever symptoms clients present.
The course is approved for 12 CEUs by the NCCAOM. For more information about the book and course visit: Meridian Circuit Systems.
