Course description

This on-site seminar builds upon the three online-modules by Whitfield Reaves taking place from August 2020 to February 2021 and delivers the practical aspects based on the material discussed online. Each day is dedicated to one online-module and its specific body region.

For each body area, the anatomy, pathology and key points and techniques for common injuries is reviewed. This is then followed by live presentations and live practice of all techniques.

Whitfield Reaves will cover the precise locations of the important points and will present how to correctly needle them. Whitfield Reaves and experienced assistants ensure that participants understand, learn and practice the techniques.

«Das praktische Arbeiten und die Zeit die von den Dozenten und den beiden Helfern genommen wurde um zu erklären und anzuleiten ist genau das was nötig ist, damit man das gelernte in der Praxis erfolgreich anwenden kann. Einfach ein super Team.»

Philipp N., Participant

«Whit konnte aus meiner Sicht die Essenz seiner Behandlungen sehr gut hervorheben und zusammenfassen. Praxisorientiertes Wissen wurde weitervermittelt, habe das Gefühl ich kann wirklich was mitnehmen für den Praxisalltag. Sehr gutes und nützliches Handout!»
