Overview:

Accurate point location is essential for acupuncture treatment to be effective. Regardless of the accuracy of interviewing and rapport skills, diagnostic assessments of the patient’s needs, pulse findings, and selection of points, if we miss the point, we have done no treatment. Command points are some of the most common points treated, all located distal to the knee or elbow flexure.

Professor Neil Gumenick has been teaching point location to students for over 3 decades and has been in full-time practice since 1981. In this webinar series, he will discuss how to best position the patient, how to identify appropriate physical landmarks, measuring distances, and finally locating, by palpation, the exact point. Power point photos of actual patients and anatomical diagrams will accompany Neil’s precise descriptions.

The six sessions will cover the following:

  • Session 1 will cover points on the Heart and Small Intestine meridians
  • Session 2 will cover Urinary Bladder and Kidney
  • Session 3 will cover Pericardium and Triple Heater
  • Session 4 will cover Gall Bladder and Liver
  • Session 5 will cover Lung and Large Intestine
  • Session 6 will cover Stomach and Spleen


Goals and Objectives:

  1. Students will learn to position the patient properly for optimal point location accuracy
  2. Students will learn to identify relevant physical landmarks needed to locate the points
  3. Students will learn to accurately measure distances needed to locate the points
  4. Students will learn to palpate the exact point
  5. Students will learn to use touch diagnostically, as well as to build trust and rapport
