TCM is a combination of Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) and western conventional medicine created between 1949 and 1980 in the ‘People’s Republic of China’ due to complex historical, political and economic reasons.


In creating TCM, many of the foundations & concepts of Classical Chinese Medicine were removed or changed and substituted with western anatomy and physiology. At the same time, a selection of CCM concepts and methods were westernized, standardized, adapted and ultimately adjoined into the new system.

The merging of these two distinct systems especially affected acupuncture and produced some critical flaws and severe therapeutic limitations due to major loss of basic concepts, many of which have been noticed by TCM practitioners at some point in their work or study.

In this seminar you will discover the actuality and clear logic of the ancient wisdom within the Classical Chinese Medical concepts!
You will get the tools so you can effectively and immediately enhance your acupuncture possibilities, treatment efficiency and results

What you will learn:

  • How the development of TCM affected acupuncture concepts
  • The classical foundations of Chinese Medicine leading to the concept of meridians
  • The 4 main directions of Qi
  • The linking points of the body’s meridians to the outside meridians
  • How to select points and regions from the classical perspective, in relations to patterns, constitution, environment and time


There will be case studies and examples presented to support the lecture.
