We all know acupuncture works. But to work predictably means a true understanding of De Qi, or Obtaining the Qi when working on patients. To reach our highest level of clinical efficacy, we have to understand all aspects of what De Qi means in the clinic, and know how to achieve it reliably with acupuncture and acupressure. In this seminar, Andrew Nugent-Head mixes theory, demonstration, practical training and clinical experience to shed light on the most fundamental aspect of treatment with acupuncture: the ability to obtain and control the patient’s Qi every time we insert a needle.
