UPCOMING Lhasa OMS FREE Webinar: The Value of E-Stim in Unifying Classical and Anatomical Acupuncture Perspectives Featuring Poney Chiang


FEATURING:   Poney Chiang PhD R.TCMP, Dipl.OM (NCCAOM) – York University

DATE: Wednesday September 11, 2019 

TIME:  5:30 PM PT / 8:30 PM ET

TITLE: The Value of E-Stim in Unifying Classical and Anatomical Acupuncture Perspectives   







As the oldest point location manual inherited to date, the Jia Yi Jing (JYJ) describes the location of 349 points.  All modern point locations can trace their locations to those described by the JYJ.  Based on the presenter’s cadaver research and e-stim confirmation on healthy subjects, there is strong evidence to support the need to re-interpret and revise at least a quarter of modern points locations.  Results show that 90% of JYJ’s point locations precisely map over nerve trunks, nerve division points, individual branches, motor nerves entry point into muscles and sensory nerves exit points from superficial fascia.  Neuro-anatomical research findings for LU-7, HT-5, TE-5/6/7/8, LR-8, KI-3/4/5/6, KI-10, GB-22/23, SI-4 and SI-18 will be presented as examples to demonstrate that JYJ contains extremely precise point location to stimulate the peripheral nervous system, whereas WHO/TCM standardized locations are often inaccurate. Video footages will be presented to demonstrate the expected motor response associated with precise electro-stimulation of these points.  This webinar will help acupuncturists develop ways to verify the precision of their point location and needling technique in the future.




What You Will Learn:

  • Neuro-anatomical specificity of Acupuncture Points
  • Neuro-Anatomy of Luo-Connecting Points
  • How to use the Pointer Plus to find cutaneous nerves

  • Clinical Case Application

Who Should Attend:

  • Practitioners and Students looking to expand their knowledge of E-Stim
  • Practitioners and Students interested in learning more neuro-anatomy
  • Practitioners and Students looking to add to their Treatment Tool Box
