Qiological Live
Practical Application of the Eight Extraordinary Meridians

The Eight Extraordinary Meridians and their therapeutic use are often underutilized. . Except in a few schools they are often left a little to the side and much too often not incorporated  as an integral part of clinical practice. 

The Eight Extraordinary Meridians form the basis of our physical structure. We can understand them as the main organizers of the skeletal system, the pelvis, the cranium, the Marrow and the Brain. These structures  give us insight into their functions and pathways along with associated  symptomatology as well.

In this Qiological Live seminar we explore the anatomy and physiology along with pragmatic use of the Eight Extraordinary Meridians. Additionally, we’ll look at how the functions of these Extraordinary Vessels are a helpful add-on not only to Meridian based practices like Saam acupuncture, Japanese Meridian Therapy, Tuina and Shiatsu, but also to more classically based methods and even TCM.



In this live session you will be introduced to:
  • A pragmatic view of Jing and the Eight Extraordinary Meridians
  • The Eight Extraordinary Meridians as the skeletal system
  • How the Eight Extraordinary Meridians become affected by Deficiency and Excess
  • How to diagnose the Eight Extraordinary Meridians through palpation and
  • How to treat them with a completely new set of points

You’ll have lifetime access to the recording of this Qiological Live seminar

Live event fee $35, length 90 minutes

In the NanJing it is written that, “There are 10.000 diseases so look to the seasons.” So I am always asking myself: can I go deeper? Is what I am observing here really the root cause?

Your Instructor For This Class

Thomas Sorensen

I was introduced to acupuncture in 1996 while undertaking studies in Korean language and culture in Seoul, South Korea. One acupuncture treatment with a few needles on the opposite leg of the knee that I had injured during martial arts practice took away my knee pain instantly and completely. This experience changed my life around – from the first needle I had a new destination. I had to learn acupuncture.

After returning to Copenhagen, Denmark, from Korea, I started studying TCM. I went into private practice immediately after graduating, but didn’t find the TCM style of acupuncture a good match for me so I started looking at different styles of acupuncture and Japanese Meridian Therapy showed up on my radar. I was very fortunate to be accepted as a student of Ikeda Masakazu Sensei. He instilled in me a deep respect for the classics and showed me how to think in terms of basic principles and how to be pragmatic about them. I really owe him my practice.

Now I practice acupuncture based on Meridian Therapy diagnostic- and needling techniques, guided by the classics and incorporating the very powerful protocols of Korean Saam acupuncture. …and after 17 years of practice I am still having fun in the clinic every day.
