 One needle treats 1000 diseases


The One Needle technique is the basis for understanding the treatment of the Shen. It is based on a 5-elements approach which will grant you access to the core of the patient’s condition immediately.


This workshop deals with treating patients with fewer acupuncture points. Chinese Medicine utilizes the patients' own healing abilities to cure themselves. The more precise the diagnosis, the better we can enhance the patient’s strengths and potential to harness their self-healing capacity and achieve a cure – treating the root, not the disease.


In the workshop, clinical cases will be presented, and diagnostic disciplines will be discussed including the ancient observational techniques for evaluating the Shen, understanding the innermost core in order to uncover the true imbalances which are the cause of the symptoms and signs.

 One minute diagnosis & the wonderful 12 jing points


Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine is based on 4 pillars: observation, listening –smelling, inquiry-questioning, and palpating-touch. However most important information is gathered in almost the first instant. Practicing these instant diagnostic abilities enables the practitioner to really “see” the patient. Once we “see” we don’t stop “seeing” the most hidden energetic patterns, the inner pain, the strength, the yin and yang and the elements as they are manifested in the individual, the story of the Shen.



Watch the short lecture on HT 9 





The extraordinary channels form a blueprint of person’s destiny. They contain Jing and create an infrastructure for Shen to dwell in. The very basic structure and plan for human body is represented by them.

When the sperm meets the ovum the Ren and Du are created than the Chong and Dai mai are involved in the first cell division. They are the root of creation of all the initial physical structures.

The extraordinary channels are extraordinary and have a vast clinical relevance. They can be used to treat a variety of disease. For example: treating epilepsy, by balancing Yin and Yang Qiao or the Du Mai, loss of consciousness by treating Du 26, Chong and Yin Wei for treating hormonal imbalance and more.

During the lecture different approaches to extraordinary channels will be shown and explained. The connection between those channels and FuXi (early Heaven or primordial) order of eight trigrams will be discussed with its clinical applications concerning pre-natal development of human body. Also their role in ensuring fertility will be presented.

The discussion of different channels will cover their pathways, physiology and pathology, so called opening points, techniques of needling and pairing them. Special attention will be put to their clinical relevance in treating modern, complicated diseases like autoimmune or metabolic diseases.
