10 Days of Chinese New Year: Day 4

05 February 2015

Today was the fourth day of Chinese New Year at BISS and the whole of Year 9 as well as the Year 12 Mandarin students took part in Chinese acupuncture workshops. Frederick in Year 8 gives us our daily report…

  • Students at the British International School Shanghai, Puxi take part in an acupuncture workshop

Famous acupuncture professional Brenton Harvey, came all the way from the US to our school today to give us an insight into Chinese acupuncture. As an integral part of the Chinese traditional medical practice, acupuncture relies on ultra-thin needles that are inserted into selected acu-points in the nervous system, which are manipulated to restore normal body circulation and function. Year 12 students were invited to Stage One in the primary building where they were lectured on acupuncture as five individual groups. Ms Kane and Ms McConnon were selected as examples to show the students how acupuncture works. It was interesting to see the enthusiastic students so engaged in the learning of traditional Chinese acupuncture through the lecture.

来自美国的著名针灸专科医师Brenton Harvey,跨过太平洋风尘仆仆地来到我们学校,向学校12年级的学生们讲解了中国针灸的魔力。作为中国医学实践的一个组成部分,针灸疗法基于针灸通过神经系统的穴位而对人体产生的各种不同作用而发挥其功效。Ms. Mconnon还被作为“实验品”上了“针灸治疗台”,帮助Brandon教授向学社个娘们说明针灸的功用。看着这样新奇的医学实验,学生们饶有兴趣的围着“人体穴位图”热烈地讨论。
