EN_Neuro-Meridian Acupuncture

uunder the patronage of

Dr. Poney Chiang 


November 18th-20h - 2022
Accademia dei Fisiocritici - Siena Italy



The Neuro-Meridian Acupuncture is a journey within the Acupuncture to study its neuro-anatomical bases and the consequent implications in therapy.

Through a systematic localization of the points, Dr. Chiang has developed a highly modern approach to the study of acupoints and their clinical effects, in line with the scientific assumptions of Integrated Medicine. The main novelty consists in the intersection between the data that come from the most ancient classical texts (the most recent MTC turns out to be in fact inaccurate) with those of the modern neuroanatomy, with an objective validation of the points that, in the case by Dr. Chiang, is done by directly dissection the areas of the human body. In this way a converging point is established between the ancient Chinese tradition and the most modern applications of neuroscience.

The great scientific rigor, combined with a passionate study of ancient Chinese medicine, make Poney Chiang and Neuro-meridian Acupuncture one of the absolute points of reference for a scientific study of Acupuncture and its possibilities of integration with Western Medicine.


The TCM / WHO standardized localization reports about a quarter of the Acupuncture points that differ from those of the Classical localization; this inconsistency is not due to medical reasons but to transcription and cultural influences, with the consequence that their localization often turns out to be imprecise on the neuromuscular level.

Referring to the oldest texts, comparing them to the modern anatomopathological findings, allows us to demonstrate a precise correlation with the motor nerves, sensory and autonomic, with the entry and exit points - sensory and motor - and with the neuromuscular junctions and the individual muscles.

Prof. Chiang offers a unique perspective on acupuncture, combining a rigorous translation of classical texts with a profound knowledge of the neuroanatomical system.

The program of the course includes the study of the peripheral nervous system and its possibilities of neuromodulation to be applied, in particular, to all painful pathologies, to entrapment pathologies of the nerve and to the neurofunctional ones.

The course also allows you to master the techniques of peripheral nerve stimulation in a systematic and safe way to avoid side effects and to accurately predict the clinical outcome.

All the meridian theory will be examined from several cross-points of view in the light of classical texts, anatomical surveys and myofascial theories. The Luo vessels and the Curious meridians will also be analyzed to understand their use in pain therapy.

During the course we will proceed to the following educational phases:

  • learn the pre-TCM localization of the points according to the Ling Shu and the Jia Yi Ting, the treatment proposed by the Ling Shu in pain therapy and the classic techniques of stimulation of the points taken from the Nei King.
  • learn the palpation techniques, the specific DeQi of each point and perform the instrumental feedback.
  • understand the the neuro-anatomy of the acupoints to develop the three-dimensional understanding of the point, the depth and the angle of insertion
  • learn to apply electrostimulation in a safe and effective way, based on the concepts of sensorimotor integration
  • learn to treat the most common neuro-orthopedic disorders with the SMART treatment (Sensitive Motor Autonomic Radiculopathyh Trigger) and the selection of distal points

The course includes a practical part focused on the localization and the correct neurostimulation and electrostimulation of the points, according to the localization of the Jia Yi Jing with all the clinical applications.

The first level involved the study of the points on the upper and lower limbs.

Next November 2022 will be studied torso&head

In the next years will be addressed neck and nervous entrapment syndromes and Neuro-rehabilitation .

Greetings from Dr. Chiang to Italian Acupuncturists in view of his Course in Siena next June.

Testimonies of Dr. Chiang's acupuncturist students. They underline the novelty of this course and the great help in the research of points as well as the demonstration of the coincidence between what is reported by ancient texts and anatomical objectivity, especially related to neuroanatomy.

Dr. Cecilia Lucenti presents the Neuro-Meridian acupuncture course that will be held by Dr. Poney Chiang in Siena next June 2019.

Short excerpt from a lecture by Dr. Chiang with demonstration of localization and activation of a point through his method.

Dr. Poney Chiang obtained a PhD in biomedical research from the University of Toronto Institute for Medical Sciences and a Master's degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York.

He is an adjunct professor at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of York in Toronto where he is the founder of the Integrated Acupuncture Course and is also an adjunct professor at the Neuro-Acupuncture Institute of Santa Fe.

He was Professor of Phytotherapy at the Traditional Chinese Medicine College of Ontario.

Dr. Chiang is an expert in peripheral neuro-anatomy of acupoints and related neuromodulation techniques. He is a guest of numerous international Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine symposia and holds workshops in North America and South America, Australia and Europe.

His research is currently focused on the study of Magnetic Resonance of the Neuroanatomy of Acupuncture Points and on the use of Acupuncture in the reduction of post-operative use of opioids.

He was a member of the Task Force for Integrated Medicine of the University of York and of the Education Planning Committee of the Center for Integrated Medicine of the University of Toronto.
