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.
