The First Step in Treating Sports Injury and Pain with Common Acupuncture Point Protocols

How commonly used distal points can be skillfully applied in acupuncture sports medicine

with Whitfield Reaves

September 17, 2022 - 12pm PDT, 3pm EDT


In this three hour webinar, Whitfield Reaves will share some of his favorite of sports injury and pain. You probably know many of these points, but creative refining and skillful use of these approaches adds precision and balance to the treatments in the acupuncture sports medicine clinic.

The first step in treating pain often uses points distal to the site of injury. Besides the familiar extraordinary points, there are numerous other possibilities available but often overlooked. The following are the general categories of treatment methodology that Whitfield suggests in his text as well as his webinars. Refining these well-known point patterns, and making them familiar to the practitioner, will often be the difference in successful treatment outcomes.

1. The Jing-well Point
The jing-well point is as distal as you can go! And as the beginning point of the tendino-muscle meridian (jingjin), treatment often starts here.

2. The Shu-stream Point Combination
Paired shu-stream points using the Six Divisions offers a dynamic yet simple protocol with upper/lower and right/left balance points.

3. The Opposite Side
Anatomical mirroring on the opposite side.

4. Treating Upper/Lower
Upper/lower anatomical mirroring.

5. General Point Combinations
Whitfield will cover many of his favorite protocols gathered since first studying in China in 1981.

Learn, understand, and refine these common point protocols and experience successful treatment outcomes.
