Prickling Neuro Stimulation is a relatively new form of needle-less acupuncture developed by Dr. Hiroshi Nagata, a neurosurgeon in Japan. PNST is still a unknown entity in the field of acupuncture. It is used mainly for treating a variety of pain related conditions. But its role in non-pain conditions is also known.
PNST is an easy to incorporate technique. It does not require the practitioner to insert needles. It applies a quick prickling stimulation to the skin surface with a pointed tool. The acupuncturist does not need a complicated diagnosis before starting treatment. It is simple to learn, fast, effective and pain free form of treatment. It can be incorporated alongside classical acupuncture treatment if need be.
This webinar explains all the theories associated with PNST including both the western and eastern explanations for the same. Some of the western explanations include stimulation of the peripheral nerves with the PNST probe, dermatomal activation of the nerves to affect specific pain areas on the body, balancing of the autonomic nervous system, etc. Eastern explanations include mechanisms like mind body integration, encourages body to regain natural healing power, etc.
Basic PNST protocol along with the point locations are explained in a very simplified manner using visual presentations. PNST for treating individual pain conditions is outlined in a lucid step by step manner.

In this short introductory webinar, see how the integration of these Three Essences apply within Acupuncture itself, as well as in our life as a whole.
This course provides a brief introduction to the basic foundations of the metaphysical origins and framework of Sān Cái 三才 → The Three Essences of life in Chinese Metaphysics. The Three Essences are the ancient Chinese metaphysics concept of the unity and harmony of man and natural law - Heaven - Tiān 天, Earth - Rén 人 and Humankind - Dì 地.

Yin Sotai is a gentle evolution of Sotai, an already gentle East Asian bodywork style that is often combined with acupuncture treatments in Japan. Its founder was Keizo Hashimoto, MD of Sendai, Japan. Both Sotai and Yin Sotai are best understood as indirect methods of bodywork, which is to say that the patient will engage in pleasant movements away from pain and restriction. Yin Sotai is best understood as a sort of neuromuscular re-education for the patient. Often, just incorporating ten minutes of this sort of bodywork with acupuncture can increase its effectiveness tremendously.
