The Eight Extraordinary Vessels (Qi Jing Ba Mai) are considered the ancestral and constitutional vessels of Chinese acupuncture.  As such, these channels are utilized for the treatment of congenital issues and acquired conditions that damage the jing-essence.  Stemming from the unfolding of yin and yang via the first ancestry (Chong, Ren, and Du), these vessels serve as the basis and foundation of human existence by which an individual undergoes the process of evolving into the biological (natural), individual, social, and even the transpersonal self.  Through working with these eight vessels, clinicians gain a deeper understanding of how to mediate one’s destiny and adapt to the potential taxation accorded by oneself, society, and the environment.  More importantly, treatment strategies will be examined pertaining to the reversal of latent pathogens that have been absorbed into the constitution resulting in chronic degenerative diseases.

  • Energetics of each of the eight extraordinary vessels (EV)
  • Physical and psychosocial development associated with the 8 EV
  • 8 EV as ditches for constitutional pathogens and their reversal
