Course description

5-Day Intensive Practical Sessions + On-line Video Lectures + “New” Anatomy Prosection Labs For the advanced treatment of neuromyofascial pain! This post-graduate program integrates energy-based Eastern acupuncture with anatomy-based Western acupuncture. Clinicians will develop advanced palpation and needling techniques to treat pain and neuromuscular disorders. YOU WILL LEARN: • Needling techniques used by medical acupuncturists • Precise acupuncture anatomy (during cadaveur labs) • Palpation and expected deQi response for points • NeiJing analysis for pain-related treatment strategies PROGRAM DESCRIPTION Patients mostly seek acupuncture for neuro-muscular pain conditions. Yet the typical TCM acupuncture curriculum emphasizes internal medicine at the expense of physical medicine skills. This continuing education program aspires to fill this void in clinical training. Eastern medicine reveres ancient canons as the highest authority whereas Western medicine esteems peer-reviewed journals as the gold standard. Therefore we integrated medical canons with scientific research to create a program that preserves the core values unique to each system. This is an advanced program that trains clinicians to possess the critical and manual skills to treat a wide variety of neuro-muscular pain conditions. Our mission is to prepare acupuncture clinicians to become experts in integrative pain medicine.
