Course Overview

One of the fundamental laws of Chinese Medicine teaches the constant struggle between the upright, Zheng Qi, of the body and pathogenic Xie Qi, usually coming from the outside.

When pathogenic Qi manages to enter the channels, it can block the free flow of Qi leading to various responses from the body.

In this course, Bartosz Chmielnicki MD discuss the ancient theory of the Bi Syndromes together with different strategies of treatment and acupuncture points.

He strengthens the discourse by presenting Scientific knowledge from modern research about the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of arthritis.

Really enjoyed this course

Rated 5.0 out of 5

I really enjoyed this course. Bi Syndrome had been confusing to me, and I learned a lot from this course. The only aspect which I was left confused about is needle technique – tonification vs sedation vs even method – and I would have liked more info on this. But very helpful anyway, and I look forward to applying it in my treatment room. Thanks!
