Gain proficiency in electro-modulating various branches of the sensory, motor, and neurovascular system.

Perfect the practitioner’s skill in obtaining the correct De-Qi sensation unique to each point through the knowledge of neuro-anatomy and channel theory.


Dr. Chiang will provide precise clinical anatomical approaches used to treat common neuro-orthopedic disorders such as:

UPPER Extremity:
Rotator Cuff Syndrome, Frozen Shoulder, Tennis Elbow, Tricep Tendinosis, Bicipital Tendinitis, Golfer’s Elbow, De Quervain Tenosynovitis, Carpal tunnel.

Key distinct skills learning objectives to be covered in this course that set this course apart:

  • Predict and confirm unique De-Qi sensation for each point to elevate needle precision (No more guesswork, Be 100% sure)
  • Create needle prescription by adding a neuro-anatomical layer to channel theory (Best of East and West)
  • Achieve reproducible results that allow you to communicate to patients with certainty: explain the problem, explain the treatment goal, and number of treatments.
