For over 800 years acupuncturists have believed Ma Danyang’s collection of 12 points are the most important in Chinese medicine. Their efficacy is said to be like Hot Water on Snow, and it was cautioned their transmission only go to the worthy.
Today, all practitioners know and use them. But the power of these points is not unleashed by inserting a needle and then leaving them alone. A practitioner must know how to needle them to achieve their full effects. It is a combination of accurate diagnosis, needling method and hand skill that rises these points above all others in efficacy. ‘To be worthy’ meant to be shown how to use them, not simply told to use them.
During this lecture, Andrew Nugent-Head MSOM teaches the Ma Danyang points as he was taught them, presenting the theory around the points and their different abilities as well as the hand techniques that maximize their potential. He also demonstrates using the Ma Danyang points as part of a protocol, moving from theory into clinical practice in one weekend.
