Course Overview

This 2-day cutting-edge course will teach the practitioner how to assess postural dysfunction and prescribe therapeutic exercises for postural, muscle and channel imbalances that have directly contributed to the patient's musculoskeletal injury. This course will teach the acupuncturist important skills to prescribe specific exercises in the management of their patient’s health care. Exercising different body parts simultaneously in specific and coordinated motions activates the myofascial sinew channels so that form and function can align. The practitioner will learn to integrate acupuncture protocols with exercise prescription, including how to use intra-dermal needle point prescriptions on the Extraordinary Vessel master points to alleviate discomfort, increase proprioception and enhance clinical outcomes.

Objectives

  • The practitioner will learn visual assessment skills for postural imbalances of the low back, hip and groin.

  • Participants will learn how to effectively prescribe therapeutic exercises that will help balance lumbopelvichip complex that are important to treat for organ related dysfunction and musculoskeletal injuries.

  • The practitioner will learn to integrate acupuncture protocols with exercise, including intra-dermal needle prescriptions on the Extraordinary Vessel master points to alleviate discomfort, increase proprioception and enhance clinical outcomes.
