Course Overview

Part One of this two-part series discusses three major energetic blocks which, unless cleared, will threaten the patient's life or prevent treatment from being effective. In this webinar, each of three blocks: Possession, Aggressive Energy, and Husband/Wife Imbalance are discussed in their order of treatment priority. Participants will learn the likely causes of these blocks, how to detect their presence, and how to resolve each with acupuncture, including the points to be used, needle method, instruction on point location, and how to determine whether the treatment was successful.


  • Participants will learn to identify and treat a possessed patient, resolving this block, which if unresolved, will prevent effectiveness of conventional treatment.

  • Participants will learn to test for and remove (if present) Aggressive Energy, a pathological condition, which if unresolved, has lethal consequences.

  • Participants will learn to test for and remove (if present) a Husband/Wife Imbalance which, if unresolved, has lethal consequences.

  • Jill S. (Canada)

    This course is has given me additional knowledge and insight into looking for and/or testing for energetic blocks in my patients. A must all acupuncturists should be aware that can exist and interrupt the success of their treatment.

  • Hideko P. (United States of America)

    Dr. Neil solved my questions about the protocols. His explanation is very clear. I highly recommend this course to every acupuncturist who is interested in Five Element Acupuncture.

  • *CEU/CPD Approvals

    Some accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days.

    If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days.

    We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way. Just visit the course page in your Net of Knowledge account and click the "Request Approval" button at the top.

    Each "Course and CEUs/CPDs" purchase grants you 1 request per accreditation body. If you request a course approval and do not complete it before its new expiration date, you will need to purchase another "CEU/CPD Add-On" to make another request.

    If the course is ineligible for approval with an accreditation body due to their subject-matter policies, it will be listed as "[Ineligible]", and no requests will be possible for the course.
