Accurate point location is essential for acupuncture treatment to be effective. Regardless of the accuracy of interviewing and rapport skills, diagnostic assessments of the patient’s needs, pulse findings, and selection of points, if we miss the point, we have done no treatment. Command points are some of the most common points treated, all located distal to the knee or elbow flexure.
Professor Neil Gumenick has been teaching point location to students for over 3 decades and has been in full-time practice since 1981. In this webinar series, he will discuss how to best position the patient, how to identify appropriate physical landmarks, measuring distances, and finally locating, by palpation, the exact point. Power point photos of actual patients and anatomical diagrams will accompany Neil’s precise descriptions.
Please note this series has now passed. Please check out Neil's upcoming Non-Command Points Series starting September 2, 2014.
