Soon to Be Released: New Online Acupuncture Course Based on Meridian Therapies


Since its release in December of 2010, the book and corresponding online acupuncture course, “Meridian Circuit Systems: A Channel Based Approach to Pattern Identification,” has been receiving international recognition.

Based on meridian therapy, the course teaches a unique method of diagnosis and treatment that makes a substantial contribution to the practice of acupuncture and Oriental medicine. The core material of the book explains the fifteen major “meridian circuits” that may be formed by the various connections that exist between the twelve regular meridians. In this system numerous relationships can be made between the six meridians that are spoken of in the Shang Han Lun. For example, the jue yin meridians of the liver and pericardium are connected to the shao yang meridians of the gallbladder and san jiao, as well as with the yang ming meridians of the stomach and large intestine. Therefore, liver patterns that affect the stomach or colon may be described as a jue yin – yang ming pattern. Similarly, liver patterns that affect the head and neck may be classified as a jue yin – shao yang pattern.

“When this system is thoroughly understood it helps the therapist to refine their selection of meridians and points,” said James Spears the author of the book. “Since liver qi stagnation may affect different parts of the body, it is imperative to have a clear understanding of what meridians or organs are primarily being affected and therefore symptomatic. If liver qi stagnation is affecting the head, jaw, or shoulders it is usually best to use the jue yin – shao yang circuit. However, if the liver stagnation is affecting the stomach or intestines, it is most appropriate to use the jue yin – yang ming circuit,” continued James.

In response to the book and courses popularity, a second online course is currently being developed that deals specifically with the digestive system. While the first course teaches the fundamentals of using meridian therapies, and provides information for the treatment of numerous conditions, the second course will thoroughly address meridian based approaches to the most common types of digestive conditions. The digestive course is in its final phase of development and is due to be released in early June.
