Take your practice to the next level

This training is a great opportunity to take your practice to the next level in a safe, intimate environment.

We will focus on acupoint injection techniques including safety, location, potential outcomes and use of appropriate supplies, medicinals and herbals. Point selection, palpation, needling techniques, and patient management will be the main focus of the seminar. Participants will leave with the confidence, knowledge and understanding of how to incorporate this modality safely into their everyday practice.

Each session will begin with an introduction of the common mechanisms of pain and dysfunction, a review of anatomy and discussion on treatment protocols that REALLY work. Although the weekend will include instruction and demonstration, an emphasis will be on each practitioner having hands-on experience practicing palpation, and anatomical positioning while applying acupoint injection therapy safely and effectively.

The course has been designed to fulfill recently approved requirement to practice Acupoint Injection Therapy in Washington state.
