Course Overview

This course provides an in-depth description of xi-cleft points and their clinical usage demonstrated through case studies. Taking this course, you will use these points immediately to increase treatment success and diagnostic skills. 

Xi-cleft points are applicable for acute and chronic physical complaints, including pain. Use these points when daily activities, such as grabbing something from the kitchen cupboard or walking down the stairs, are suddenly no longer taken for granted. 

Xi-cleft points are also practical for persistent emotional blockages. A deeper understanding of these points gives us an insight into the patient’s inner alchemy and opens another level for the clinical application of acupuncture. These points enhance health and personal growth.
