1. General Introduction

Welcome to our focused exploration of the Water-Kidney system within the realm of MTA. This course addresses a common challenge in acupuncture: effectively treating kidney system disorders. Typically, patients with these disorders present with complex, multiple deficiencies, making traditional acupuncture treatments alone less effective. However, when complemented with moxibustion, the efficacy can be significantly improved. The problem is the clinical use of moxibustion is quite limited in our daily practice. In MTA, we have access to unique and powerful points, such as Xia San Huang - Lower Three Emperors, specifically tailored for addressing kidney deficiencies. Our journey in this course will lead you through a detailed examination of the Water-Kidney system's physiology and pathology. Understanding these aspects is crucial for effective treatment and is a central focus of our MTA studies.

This course is designed meticulously to ensure a comprehensive and deep understanding of this vital system. Whether you are a seasoned practitioner or new to the field of acupuncture, this course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to address kidney system disorders more effectively using the unique approaches of MTA.

This module is crafted for both the novice and the seasoned practitioner, aiming to broaden your knowledge and sharpen your skills in treating the Metal-Lung system using MTA methodologies.
