The Divergent Channels of Classical Chinese Medicine
According to the Spiritual Pivot of the Inner Canon (Huangdi Neijing Lingshu), the Divergent Channels (jing bie) are one of the most important channel systems that a practitioner of acupuncture needs to study in order to become an effective clinician.
Aside from the primary channels, these ”distinct” meridians connect with their associated Zang-Fu and as such, treat both functional and organic issues pertaining to the internal viscera-bowels. Yet unlike the primary channels, these “separate” meridians can access the yuan-constitutional level directly via the bones.
Thus their clinical applications supersede the primary channels in affecting issues pertaining to congenital, bio-genealogical, and personality disorders.
These channels are also among the most important for the treatment of immunological conditions, from auto-immune diseases to immuno-compromised illnesses.
This conference will expose participants to one of the least understood and known channels of acupuncture since the Song Dynasty.
