Manipulating Qi with Acupuncture

Understanding the Foundations of Tangible Acupuncture

This course is approved for 7 CEUs from the NCCAOM & Florida CE Broker. The Manipulating Qi with Acupuncture online course helps viewers understand what it takes to move from practicing Passive Acupuncture where needles are expected to affect the Qi to Active Acupuncture where the practitioner is expected to affect the Qi by manipulating the needle. It covers an understanding of Passive vs. Active Needling, sets realistic expectations of each modality, explains what steps must be taken to affect Qi the way we want tangibly, and demonstrates what nine different methods look like in the clinic when used on a person. This stand alone course is strongly recommended for anyone looking to understand Tangible Acupuncture and is essential as foundation material for those training in Nine Essential Needle Technique in person trainings.
