Courses / Will the Real Channels and Organs Please Stand Up
What is Net of Knowledge?


A 57-year-old woman come into the clinic complaining of waking in the night needing to pee; she also has a diagnosis of asthma. Patients often present with multiple symptoms. Dr. Keown discusses his strategies for history taking, formulating a diagnosis, making a plan, and then treating. Dr. Keown's style of practice is heavily influenced by Dr. Wang Ju-Yi and his channel palpation method. He considers himself a student of this method and focuses on exploring people's experience and knowledge of channel palpation. Finally, in the last part of this talk, he discusses how Western medicine strengthens our understanding of Chinese medicine, thereby giving practitioners new ways to explain TCM to their patient population.

Excellent course that uses the Western medical lens to view, understand and support ancient TCM principles. Cutting edge research and explanation of TCM channels & organs. Extremely clarifying. Bravo!Robin G.United States

Very Amazing course. I am looking forward to more of these in the future.Vincent H.Canada

This kind of information should be presented in TCM schools. Its the kind of thing that can make or break a new students understanding of Chinese medicine. As Keown said in the lecture, Chinese medicine has it all, its just a matter of translation, and things aren't always translated well in school, via textbooks and/or via the instructors. This way of explaining things and of relating the Chinese organs and channels to western physiology and anatomy while being respectful of Chinese theories, has the potential to create a much deeper understanding of Chinese medicine as a whole. It's a very inspiring course and gives new life to the Chinese organs and channels I thought I knew all too well, but I really had no clue!Karen K.United States

An interesting overview of how fascia exists within the body, how that relates to Chinese medicine, and an additional overview of the commonalities between TCM and biomedicine, including some direct translations.Corrine W.Canada

I enjoyed this course and the correlations between acupuncture and western medicine. It was very educational.Wendy C.Canada
