Shao Yang Conformation and Bleeding Workshop

This workshop is the third in a series of six workshops taught by Shaun Goodman. Each workshop discusses the Channel Theory and is based on a number of different resources and approaches that together give practitioners a broader and deeper understanding of channel theory.  Each workshop explores one of the six conformations and together make up a complete course on channel theory.

The workshops are both clinical and practical and provide practitioners a profound understanding of each system in order to achieve better results in clinical practice.  The workshops emphasize Master Tung’s acupuncture system.

Each workshop is divided into two parts, a theoretical part and a practical part.  The practical part includes demonstrations of different techniques as well as accurate point location and needling of Master Tung’s extra points.

It is possible to register for each workshop individually as each is a unit of itself and is not dependent on participation in previous workshops.
