If you want to be a world class acupuncturist, you need to know what is contained in these texts. If you want to be a world class diagnostician, you need to know what is written in the pages of these books. David is a master of this domain and he shares his in depth knowledge of Han medicine with us in this episode.
The Nei Jing and the Nan Jing contain enough clinically relevant information that you could literally spend your entire career refining the details contained within their pages and still not uncover all the intricacies.
David White has done just this. He has dedicated his career to studying in great depth the ins and outs of the Nan Jing and the Nei Jing and the clinical and diagnostic info that is so abundant in these texts. Pulse diagnosis, acupuncture techniques, diagnostic indicators – this man knows the details. Scholar and practitioner extraordinaire – David has collected a lot of experience in the Han medicine of the Nei Jing and Nan Jing since entering the profession.
David holds a masters degree from RMIT and is in his final year of his doctorate at UTS in Sydney. He is a former founding member of the International Society for the Study of Classical Acupuncture (ISSCA) and current Director of the Institute of Neijing Research (INR). He is currently in private practice in Sydney’s North Shore, a senior lecturer at SITCM in acupuncture, and holds seminars in Neijing medicine all around the globe. In 2017 David will be teaching, as part of the ongoing Neijing Medicine series through the Institute of Neijing Research, the Compass of Jingluo which is a classical exploration of the channel system. This will be in Melbourne on the 23rd and 24th of April and the 3rd and 4th of June. The INR will also be launching it’s online training for all theoretical studies in Neijing medicine early next year.
