Take your practice to the next level
This 24-hour training is a great opportunity to take your practice to the next level in a safe environment with a small class size of no more than 14 participants. We will focus largely on acupoint injection techniques including safety, location, potential outcomes and use of appropriate supplies and injectable substances. Each session will begin with an introduction of the common mechanisms of pain and dysfunction, a review of local anatomy and discussion on treatment protocols that REALLY work.
During class the emphasis will be on point selection, palpation, needling techniques, patient management and safety, as these are paramount to ensure you leave with the confidence to begin practicing APIT immediately, and effectively. Each practitioner will receive extensive hands-on experience practicing palpation, and anatomical positioning while applying APIT.
The most relevant and commonly used injectables will be covered in class; additionally, we provide extensive pharmacology information on Eastern & Western herbs, nutraceuticals, vitamins, and homeopathics to take home and apply in your practice.
The seminar will include topics such as:
- Acupoint injection therapy best practices
