Hi Chad, I bought the Tom Tam healing system book a few months ago and have been meaning to ask you a question regarding point location.
Tom constantly mentions that there will probably be a 'knot' at T5 for instance. Quite often I will be treating someone for a condition (using TCM but trying to integrate Tom Tam system into practice) and palpate the relevant huato jiaji points and not feel any areas of stagnation. Am I taking it too literally about looking for 'knots' in the huatojiaji area ie, 0.5 cun from the spine or should I be looking in the general area as far as the outer BL line or even further? I figure I have pretty good palpation skills as I have been doing bodywork for 12 years but I thought maybe I was missing something here.
Cheers from Aus
