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.

These 4 one-hour recorded webinars cover some of the most important and commonly used non-command points on the human body, including points on the REN and DU Channels, upper thoracic, abdominal region, the back, and points around the neck. Among the categories of points covered include Back Shu points, points of Entry and Exit, points on the Inner and Outer Bladder Lines, Kidney chest points, and Windows of the Sky.

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 recorded 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 four sessions cover the following:

  • Session 1 covers the back, including selected points on the DU channel, inner and outer UB line
  • Session 2 covers the chest and abdomen, including selected points on the REN channel, Kidney, Stomach, and Spleen
  • Session 3 covers points of Entry and Exit
  • Session 4 covers Windows of the Sky points

Goals and Objectives:

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