Course description

Musculoskeletal pain is one of the most frequent reason for consultations in clinic. Acupuncture and Osteopathic medicine are two effective techniques and they are synergistic in treating pain. 

Often, pain is generically reported to a widespread area of a joint, together with some rigidity and it can be difficult to identify the exact Acupuncture Channel affected by a musculoskeletal pain.

Osteopathic manipulative treatment’s aim is to bring back joints in their physiological position, reduce pain and limitation of the movement and help to identify the channel that needs to be treated with Acupuncture.

In this seminar, a large practical part ensure that Acupuncture practitioners learn in a short time the combined application of Acupuncture and Osteopathic techniques so that it can immediately be transferred to their own practice.

«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.....»
