Suggested Reading and Preparation for the Course at ABZ MITTE, Offenbach
Attending students will find it helpful to do some preparatory reading before the course. Dr. Wang and Dr. Robertson’s book, Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine, is available in both English and German. Students should read chapter 11 and chapters 14-17 before attending the course.
The best preparation for new students - or as a repetition for experienced students - in this system is the eight-part video recording over 28 hours.
This theoretical introduction is an excellent way to acquire the basic knowledge for this advanced practical workshop on 23-26 October 2025, and to see and listen to the videos again and again as required.
From 2002-2017, groups of students from around the world traveled to Beijing to study with professor Wang Juyi (王居易). Dr. Wang would give lectures four mornings each week, break for lunch then see patients for three of the afternoons. Other afternoons, students would practice point location and palpation techniques. Recordings from these events were compiled, arranged and translated to create the text Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine (2008). Crucial to the creation of the text was the spirit of dialogue between teacher and student during lectures and the chance to see theory put into practice. In the seven years since Dr. Wang passed away, it has become apparent that preservation of the long-form study intensive will be important for keeping his highly effective clinical vision alive and growing.
In the spirit of the Beijing study trips, this four-day intensive will recreate one of Dr. Wang’s ‘advanced’ classes for students already familiar with the core concepts of Applied Channel Theory.
This will involve a deep discussion of point combination and location drawn from Dr. Wang’s clinical experience. Participating students will find that a return to the ‘basics’ of fundamental point categories can lead to a quantum leap in clinical results. Specifically, this class will involve discussion and location practice for the five transport points (五輸穴 wǔ shū xué), source points (原穴 yuán xué), cleft points (郗穴 xī xué), collateral points (絡穴 luò xué) and eight extraordinary vessel confluent points (八會穴 bā huì xué). This course will be appropriate for both new and experienced students of this system. The goal will be to replicate Dr. Wang’s teaching style which always strove to go deeper into core concepts. New students will develop a detailed understanding of the system and will develop skills for integrating channel palpation with clinical reasoning, treatment strategies and advanced problem-solving skills in acupuncture.
Advanced students will further refine point location, palpation skills and clinical strategy. The class outline below will include time for questions and additional discussions drawn from student participation.
Basic knowledge of acupuncture and Chinese medicine; Knowledge of the applied channel theory of Dr. Wang Juyi (see the eight-part video recording over 28 hours).
All participants will receive a certificate of the “Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Klassische Akupunktur und TCM e.V.”
