Considering the Six Jing in Saam Acupuncture

Complimentary Course

The 六經, the six levels or confirmations is a key aspect of our herbal medicine. The characteristics of “the jing” can be very helpful in distilling a precise diagnosis, which in turn leads to effective treatment.
In this conversation we take a look at how the Saam method leans heavily on the great channels and helps to guide us in our clinical work.

Toby Daly, PhD, L.Ac

I began studying Chinese medicine in 1997 with Sunim Doam, a Korean monk trained in the Saam tradition. In 2002, I earned a master's degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine upon completion of training at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco and Chengdu University in China.
During my four years of training in San Francisco, I interned with Dr. Angela Wu who taught me how to apply the lofty theories I was studying in school into the pragmatic setting of a busy clinic.
In 2013, I developed the Chinese Nutritional Strategies app to provide digital access to the wealth of Chinese dietary wisdom. In 2016, proving once again that some people never learn, I completed a PhD in Classical Chinese Medicine under the guidance of 88th generation Daoist priest Jeffery Yuen.
My current focus is on sharing my 20 years of clinical experience with the Saam tradition.
