This workshop is open to anyone with a background in acupuncture and Chinese medicine. It will cover the history and development of qijing bamai, the ‘eight extraordinary vessels’. It will present an overview of various theories that have been put forward about them, various descriptions of their pathways, traditional and a variety of historical and modern uses of them. The eight extraordinary vessels represent a very deep primitive qi regulatory system in the human body that can produce strong treatment effects – Gaowu, author of the 1529 treatise ‘Gathering of Eminent Acupuncturists’ said about them that it is like going hunting for a rabbit but using a net the size of the field to catch the rabbit, i.e. you always catch the rabbit. The lecturer will demonstrate a number of different Japanese treatment approaches that he has studied and uses in his practice. Since the literature about the qijing bamai is clinically and conceptually varied it is difficult to develop an understanding that is grounded in both historical sources and clinical practice. The lecturer will offer some speculative discussions of the possible biological nature and development of them. While literature about the uses of the qijing bamai was late developing in acupuncture-Chinese medicine, in the body they may well develop before the jingmai-meridian system to be replaced by it as the jingmai system develops. Together these two systems can be conceived as playing an important regulatory role in the body. To understand them, the author will explore ideas about bio-regulation and basic physical properties of the body independent of anatomical details which might be how the qijing bamai express themselves.

Initially training in pre-TCM and TCM styles of Chinese acupuncture, Stephen Birch has been practicing acupuncture since 1982 with a specialization in Japanese acupuncture. He began studying with Kiiko Matsumoto and then started studying in Japan with senior experienced practitioners, first with Yoshio Manaka and then with various Meridian Therapists, especially those in the Toyohari tradition: Kodo Fukushima, Toshio Yanagishita, Akahiro Takai, Shuho Taniuchi, Koryo Nakada and many others. He co-authored 3 books with Matsumoto, including “Hara Diagnosis”. He also co-wrote Manaka’s English book “Chasing the Dragon’s Tail” (in German “Manaka’s Quantensprung”) and the text “Japanese Acupuncture” with his wife Junko Ida (also available in German). He wrote a general text on acupuncture “Understanding Acupuncture” with Bob Felt. At present he is working on a Japanese pediatric (Shonishin) text and a book on Qi and the Jingmai with two Spanish colleagues. He has taught extensively around Europe and also in Australasia and the US. He recently joined the faculty of the first degree granting acupuncture college in Scandinavia, the Norwegian College of Acupuncture. He has been involved in research about acupuncture for over twenty years with a PhD in acupuncture research methodology, working on studies in the US and Europe, and has published dozens of papers on this topic; he is working on a series of papers that will hopefully light the way towards better research in the field. At present he is one of the two more senior Toyohari instructors in Europe and also helps direct a diverse grass-roots research movement into this subtle qi based therapy. He has maintained a practice throughout this time and currently practices at the Japanese Acupuncture Center in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
