Course description

Musculoskeletal pain is one of the most frequent reasons for consultation in acupuncture clinics. Based on the experience of Dr. Umberto Mazzanti, Acupuncture and Osteopathic medicine are two effective techniques to treat pain that can be synergistically combined for even more effective treatments. The specific method developed by Dr. Mazzanti and taught in this course is the AcuOsteo Method™.

Often, pain is reported over a widespread area of a joint and accompanied by some joint-rigidity. In many instances, it is somewhat difficult to identify the exact acupuncture channel intersecting the musculoskeletal pain-area. Osteopathic manipulations aim to move joints back to their physiological position to reduce pain and limitation of movement. This assists in more clearly identifying the affected channel. This channel can then be treated by acupuncture.

This seminar has a large practical part. This ensures that acupuncture practitioners learn the actual clinical application of the discussed acupuncture and osteopathic techniques (AcuOsteo Method™). Participants will be able to use the information and apply the teqniques immediately after the course.

  • Pathophysiology and Diagnosis of pain in TCM and Osteopathic medicine.​​​​

  • The crucial role of the Secondary Channels in Musculoskeletal pain.

  • Description of Muscle and Luo Channels: functions and methods of treatment

  • Musculoskeletal pain in the upper limbs: diagnosis and therapy by Acupuncture and Osteopathic Manipulations (AcuOsteo Method™)

  • The therapeutic spectrum includes shoulder pain, elbow pain and wrist pain.

«Herr Mazzanti und seine Assistentin waren sehr aktiv und jederzeit bereit auf Fragen einzugehen und behilflich zu sein. Das war sehr angenehm. Außerdem war die Kursstärke optimal für eine gute Betreuung. Die Patientenvorstellungen waren in ihrer Darstellung und Wirkung der Behandlung beeindruckend und ich werde die Technik diese Woche noch in meiner Praxis austesten und hoffe auf ähnliche Erfolge.....»
