Course Overview

Instructors: Brian Lau and Matt Callison

 

This 2-day workshop developed by Brian Lau and Matt Callison highlights how the myofascial channel sinews (jingjin) contribute to efficient movement patterns and balance major joint structures of the lower extremity. Focus is on understanding how these channels are involved in postural and myofascial imbalances that can contribute to lower extremity and foot injuries.

 

Practitioners will learn to accurately assess knee, ankle and foot imbalances with functional movement examinations, orthopedic examinations and manual muscle testing. “Acupuncture as an Assessment” strategies are used to build treatment protocols using innovative acupuncture strategies in combination with very effective myofascial release techniques that help to align the musculoskeletal system, decrease tension, reduce pain and enhance healing of the injured tissue.

 

Brian Lau has been practicing structural integration techniques for over 20+ years and brings his experience into teaching the acupuncturist effective myofascial release techniques that can be applied immediately after the practitioner’s acupuncture treatment. These incredible and easy to learn structural integration techniques strongly reinforce the practitioner’s treatment protocol and helps to reduce needle soreness. Your patients will notice a difference in their movement immediately after the treatment! This class sets up the Assessment and Treatment of the Lower Extremity Injuries course, which is taught live in-person.

Objectives

  • Learn lower extremity myofascial pathways correlate with functional anatomy.

  • Learn the tissues belonging to each sinew channel and their functional anatomy relationship.

    The SMAC program is clinically useful and taught by the best teachers. They genuinely care about the students' learning, along with their staff. I am so grateful to have had a chance to take this program. Knowing how to effectively and safely treat a myriad of musculoskeletal pain is a LAC bread and butter, and it's a must for those seeking to get the most out of what acupuncture has to offer. This program merges traditional and contemporary methods that helps to evolve the acupuncture profession. Thank you!

  • Timoni S. (United States of America)

    This course really fills in the missing pieces from the masters and doctoral acupuncture programs. The deep analysis of anatomy and palpation have added skills to my profession that have helped so many people. Any acupuncturist wanting to further understand the human body through the lens of TCM, yet feel confident enough to speak to any western practitioner, needs to take this course.
