Bloodletting Therapy in Chinese Medicine – An Introduction

  • Newcastle College of Chinese Medicine Newcastle House Dublin Ireland (map)

Bloodletting therapy is a fundamental method of classical acupuncture and according to the Neijing is essential in the treatment of chronic disease. In this class we will cover the basics of bloodletting therapy and see how this very old therapy can be a very dynamic and useful tool in the modern acupuncturist’s toolbox. Topics will include when and why we use bloodletting, how to actually apply the technique, and some commonly bled areas of the body.

Classes are sponsored by the Newcastle College of Chinese Medicine in Ireland. For more information please contact Kathleen Dowd at 086 2236335 or
