Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine

The Eight Extraordinary Channels are one of the most important channels in the acupuncture channel system. These channels are the bridge between prenatal and postnatal influences in our lives. The Eight Extraordinary channels influence Jing, (essence) and source Qi, and can be used to support all the channel systems.

The Eight Extraordinary Channels can assist in treating deep, chronic and old patterns that influence the three treasures of our life: the physical, emotional and spiritual. These channels can release one from emotional and spiritual imbalances and realign one to the yuan shen (original spirit).

In this workshop, David will introduce each of the Eight Extraordinary channels with an emphasis on their psycho-emotional and spiritual qualities. The focus of this workshop is clinical applications. David will present a framework to develop customized treatments for each patient. This is the essence of Chinese medicine.
