  • Accreditation by Qualifications Register
  • 12 units

Illness can be diagnosed by identifying whether there is a deficiency, sinking, stagnating or rebellious chi. [Rebellious-chi is any chi that is flowing in the wrong direction]. These are called “Identification of Patterns of Illness”. Chi is an unseen energy, yet it is present in everything. The body contains chi, fluids and flesh, which represent air, sea and land. Their presence, in Chinese philosophical thinking proves that the human body is a micro-universe.
 
To the Chinese the human body represents the entire universe. This is the reason why they emphasise a need that to live, people need both a balanced and an integrated lifestyle. To the Chinese health and wisdom go hand and hand.
 
This course aims to teach you how to use Oriental diagnosis for assessing the nature of your client’s condition. You will be taught to identify disease patterns and then how to look at disease diagnosis.

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.

Introduction

  • The Chinese system of medicine has evolved over thousands of years.  Their belief is in a holistic approach that treats the whole body and not just the illness. They also believed that there should be no division made between treating the mind and the body.

Identification of patterns according to the eight principles

  • Pattern identification and administration of treatment are the main distinctive features of Chinese medicine diagnosis and treatment. ‘Pattern identification’ is the phrase used to include both the gathering of all the symptoms, the examinations used and the application of the patterns that will decide the actual treatment required.

Chi, blood and body fluids identification of patterns

  • These patterns describe the interplay between chi, blood and body fluids, and what happens if one or some become stagnant in excess, or are deficient. 

Six channel pattern identification of patterns

  • The six channels are the principles of pattern identification discussed in the Shang Han Lun. The Shang Han Lun is a monograph that discusses many types of externally contracted diseases. The six-channel pattern identification is a method for the pattern identification of externally contracted diseases.

The four examinations – Asking - Part I

  • Asking questions is a very important part of any session involving diagnosis. The most important thing to a patient is to talk about what made them go to see a practitioner in the first place.

The four examinations – Asking - Part II

Diagnosis - Feeling or palpation and pulse diagnosis - Part I

  • A practitioner uses feeling or touch as a diagnostic tool to check for any sweat or dryness, to detect any external or internal disharmonies, organ malfunctioning and/or to judge the functions of a meridian. Pulse taking is an important part of Chinese medical theory, and it is taught throughout China

Diagnosis by feeling: Part II - Pulse diagnosis continued

  • Pulse diagnosis is one of the most important tools a practitioner has to diagnose what is wrong with their client.  The aim is always to bring the meridians, yin and yang, essence and chi back to balance.  To do this the practitioner must identify the disharmony and correct it. 

Diagnosis by feeling: Part III - Pulse diagnosis continued

Diagnosis by looking

  • This lesson is about looking at the body of the patient for clues of disease. No practitioner would ever look at only the part of the body with the complaint, as always they look at the whole person.

Tongue diagnosis

  • Through the use of tongue diagnosis a practitioner can see the extent and quality of the exterior flow of energy in the yin organs, and the interior flow of energy in the yang organs.
