Yuan Qi Classical Acupuncture   Sept 4-5, 2020

15 NCCAOM PDAs

In this course, Dr. Robidoux will share her experience in the Classical Acupuncture System which survived the test of time in Taiwan. In Taiwan, there are three main classical lineages of Chinese medicine which are very traditional and strict schools with thousands of years of experience. They have kept the teachings of the ancient Xian (miraculous doctors) like Hua Tuo and Bian Que and passed their knowledge through closed discipleship.

While living in China for 20 years, Dr. Robidoux passed all the challenges and was accepted into the Classical School of Acupuncture (古法针灸) in Taiwan, where she became a disciple and part of the lineage. After three years under direct teachings and trials from her master, she grasped the classical acupuncture techniques, the Bian Que manipulation techniques, traditional pulse taking techniques, Daoist Qi Gong practices and meditations as well as the traditional Yuan Qi Acupuncture System.

This course was formulated for practitioners who are interested in understanding the essence, the origin and power of Chinese acupuncture. After this course, participants will understand the circulation of the various energies in the body and learn how to balance the energy of their patient as well as themselves with few points. Participants will receive the knowledge of 60 new acupuncture points which give us access to reinstating harmony and a calm and pain free state of being. In this course, practitioners will gain a new way to see life and health and learn practical tools to recreate a balanced harmony in the body and mind.
