Don't Miss the Opportunity to Learn from one of the Founders of Sports Acupuncture in North America!

runner This three-day seminar is a specialized course by Whitfield Reaves on the topic of Acupuncture Sports Medicine. With an emphasis on anatomically significant points of the musculoskeletal system, the weekend will focus on the treatment of common injury and pain syndromes. How to harmonize the biomechanics and movement patterns of the body, including postural considerations, will also be covered.

Whitfield will present the “access points” in orthopedic and sports medicine acupuncture. They include the traditional points of acupuncture, the extraordinary points, and some points or zones not elucidated in the texts, such as trigger points and motor points. Each of these points are located in anatomically significant tissues of the body, and therefore, tend to have profound effects on both structure and function; as well, they are also used for the treatment of pain.

Whitfield will cover the precise locations of the important points of the shoulder upper extremity, the low back and hip, and the lower extremity. And, of course, he will present how to precisely needle them. Click here for full details (including a course outline) on this seminar.

The course structure is as follows:

Day 1: The neck and shoulder
Day 2: The low back and hip
Day 3: The lower extremity

The material of this three-day workshop is the integration of traditional Chinese acupuncture with western orthopedic and sports medicine. With precise instruction and demonstration, each practitioner increases their knowledge and confidence in key anatomically significant points. Having spent over three decades with Olympic and world-class athletes, Whitfield’s experience is invaluable for all those working in the field of pain, orthopedics, and sports medicine. As one of the founders of sports acupuncture in North America, Whitfield Reaves should not be missed!
