This live-stream webinar series is for the serious practitioner of sports acupuncture and orthopedics and those who treat injury and pain. In these courses, Whitfield Reaves describes techniques and specific treatment protocols for common pain syndromes. Diagnosis and assessment is presented, including anatomical understanding of the numerous types of tissues involved, such as trigger points, motor points, tendons, and ligaments. And clinically effective treatment techniques follow in this clear and concise live-stream format.
This course discusses "anatomically significant points”, and how each of the different anatomical structures respond to needle insertion, electrical stimulation, and other techniques like moxa and cupping. The Four Steps, developed by the presenter, is used as a guide to systematic treatment. Each step has a specific role in the protocol, and as a whole, these Four Steps offer structure to the treatment of pain and injury. Understanding the Four Steps is a significant benefit for the practitioner, as it often assures that the proper treatment is not overlooked.
An on-site seminar in June 2021 with Whitfield Reaves and experienced assistants brings the essential practical aspect to this material. All techniques presented online will be practiced live under supervision. For each online-seminar and body region, a separate day is reserved. Find out more and register here.
