Online Acupuncture Course Now Being Offered by The Integrative Healing Society


The Integrative Healing Society has recently released a new online acupuncture course that is approved by the NCCAOM for 5 PDA’s. The course teaches a meridian based approach for doing pattern identification and is based on the newly published book, ’Meridian Circuit Systems: A Channel Based Approach to Pattern Identification.’

In the online acupuncture course a detailed method for doing diagnosis based on the connections between the channels is elaborated upon. The course starts with a thorough review of meridian connections that are based on the horary cycle, Chinese meridian names, and the internal-external relationships. After this, the meridian associations are then compared to zang-fu and 5-element theory, and this reveals how these systems overlap, as well as how a meridian based approach can lend insight into refining the diagnostic process.

The main component of the course and book discloses a method for identifying patterns that relate to the traditional names of the meridians. For instance, the shao yang and jue yin are connected by way of their internal-external relationships, and we may discern a shao yang – jue yin pattern from a yang ming – jue yin pattern.

While shao yang – jue yin patterns are usually related to liver imbalances, this syndrome is often identified when the patient has symptoms relating to the head, neck, shoulders, and nervous system.

In contrast, if a patient manifests with digestive symptoms with an underlying liver syndrome, the yang ming – jue yin pattern is usually identified. In this case, the meridians selected for treatment would be the stomach, large intestine, liver, and pericardium.

“One of the greatest strengths of the Meridian Circuit Systems online course is that it helps therapists to have a greater edge in diagnosing complex patterns. It also greatly assists in refining treatment strategies and point selections. Therapists who use this method are able to get increased clinical results with fewer needles,” said James Spears the author of the course.

The online acupuncture course was developed while James was living in Asia and leading tours to China. For additional information about the course, publications, or other events offered by the Integrative Healing Society visit:
