The Command Points distal to the elbow and knee are among the safest, most effective, and commonly used in acupuncture. They include the Source (Yuan), Junction (Luo-Connecting), Horary, Tonification and Sedation points, the Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood points of all meridians, Antique (Shu-Transporting) points, Xi-Cleft points, Master and Coupled points of the Eight Extra Meridians, many Entry and Exit points, as well as points used for their profound spiritual connotations.
Accurate point location is essential for successful treatment outcomes. In this presentation, Prof. Neil R. Gumenick, drawing on over 40 years of clinical experience, will explain how to find each of these points with precision. He will cover proper positioning of the patient, locating the appropriate anatomical landmarks, measuring, and accessing the exact point. The live video presentations will be supported by photos and anatomical renderings to facilitate the learning and retention of this essential material.

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.
