What to look for...Classical Acupuncture Sydney

Just a quick note on Classical Acupuncture Sydney's location in North Sydney / Crows Nest. We have undergone some re-branding and will no longer be called "David White Classical Acupuncture". Dr. White is still the principle acupuncture physician, however, as more trained classical acupuncturists will begin to join the clinic we wanted a more encompassing brand.

A few new signs will be displayed at street level and upstairs.

USA Acupuncture Seminars 2015 Done!

It was with great pleasure and immense gratitude that I travelled over to the USA this last month to teach as pecks of the Neijing Acupuncture style to my fellow practitioners and students. My first stop was in Kansas City, where acupuncturist Dr. Chris Powell was my host. We had a great time eating magnificent food and doing a full day seminar on the very specialised Renying / Cunkou pulse diagnosis technique of the Neijing. I am looking forward to returning to Kansas City to teach advanced needling techniques and more in 2016.

Following this was my return, after 3 years, to Portland, Oregon. I consider Portland a second home and have many close friends, some family to me, who live and practice there. I presented a 2 day seminar on the core needling chapters of the Neijing to a great group of people - a group that was a mixture of students past, long time practitioners, scholars, and friends. We steadily went through the classical methods one by one and enjoyed some practical time as well. In 2016 I will be kicking off the Neijing clinical program there with the diagnostic weekends - where pulse, complexion, and palpation techniques are taught in depth. It was a very special time for me in Portland this year as I reconnected with my old Neijing ISSCA crew and also was able to stay with my classical brother Dr. Verluys in his amazing home with his incredible family. 

Teaching has been a part of my Chinese medicine life as much as practice has. 2015 is 13th consecutive year of teaching undergraduate acupuncture and the 3rd year since the launch of the Institute of Neijing Research (INR). I look forward to many more years of teaching this incredible art, science, and medicine.

In Good Health...

Classical Chinese Medicine Education...

Dear friends,

2014 saw the inception of the Institute of Neijing Research (INR), the only Neijing focused post-graduate education institution in the world. My intention for starting the INR was to allow students, practitioners, and other interested a path into classical China, it's culture and medicine. The Huangdi Neijing, in it's current form, consists of 162 specific chapters. It is a clinical manual and medical treatise which encompasses the first complete system of acupuncture and Chinese medicine to date. It spawned such magnificent texts in both herbal medicine and acupuncture (an example of this is the Shanghan Zabinglun). 

In addition, the INR wishes to work in conjunction with other classical institutions to ensure that the future of Chinese medicine around the globe is built and continued to be built on a strong foundation. In it's current form, Chinese medicine is often taught in a diluted form on mass. This is not necessarily a bad thing as it allows graduates of current "TCM" programs to gather information about the many various methodologies in east-asian medicine that is ultimately available to them. 

Furthermore, the INR will also be hosting a number of Pre-Han and Han Dynasty cultural talks. The purpose of these talks is to allow participants to see life through the lens of the Han culture. From early medical texts (pre-Neijing), to cultural and ideological concepts (Daoism, Confucianism, Legalism, Cosmology and Cosmogony etc) these talk are intended for people from all walks of life. In time we hope to have a continuous dialogue through regular seminars and talks on early Doaist thought and how it can help individuals in their day to day routine. In fact, it may be the answer to breaking that routine.
