There are aspects of East Asian medicine that touch on the frameworks of Buddhism, Daoism, Shamanism, and Alchemy. What’s more the lenses of philosophy, psychology, spirituality, and cosmology also can come into play when we consider the nature of the channels and points. 

Touching on existential questions and potentials for healing transformation, our guest in this episode, Zac Lui, discusses the Five Phases and channel dynamics from a perspective you’ve likely not considered. And touches on the cultivation of consciousness and how it’s helpful to rid ourselves of limiting beliefs.

Palpation is a crucial diagnostic step. To confirm the accuracy of your diagnosis, it's valuable to apply acupressure or channel palpation and observe if there's any reduction in the symptoms related to the chief complaint within 1-2 minutes.
