Overview

This 2-day anatomy and cadaver webinar is an amazing integration of sports medicine functional anatomy and TCM channel sinews (jingjin) theory. Each day of this workshop is divided into distinct morning and afternoon sessions. The morning session consists of didactic presentations on Functional Anatomy and Anatomy of the Sinew Channels that are integrated to focus on the functional relationship between neuromuscular anatomy and the myofascial jingjin tissues and their relationship to the spinal column. This information is followed by the afternoon session that consists of: 1) Assessment, 2) Motor Point Location and Protocols, 3) Cadaver Presentations.

Event Host


Overview

This 2-day cutting-edge course will teach the practitioner how to assess postural dysfunction and prescribe therapeutic exercises for muscle and channel imbalances that have directly contributed to the patient's injury. This course will teach important skills to prescribe exercises in the management of their patient’s health care. Exercising different body parts simultaneously in specific and coordinated motions activates the myofascial jingjin so that form and function can align. The practitioner will learn to integrate acupuncture protocols with exercise prescription, including intra-dermal needle prescriptions on the Extraordinary Vessel master points to alleviate discomfort, increase proprioception and enhance clinical outcomes.

Michael Max

The most important thing I’ve learned in my 20+ of practicing Chinese medicine is that acupuncture works from the inside out. Learning to invite the body’s vitality to bring people into a deeper sense of coherence and wellbeing is something that becomes more intriguing to me as the years pass. These days I split my time between clinical work, writing and hosting the Qiological podcast.

The Relationship of the Bladder Channel and Intrinsic (Exercise-Induced) Asthma; and How to Treat It.

Overview

Recent research with people with intrinsic asthma shows that they all have a blockage or pathological re-routing somewhere along the Urinary Bladder, the shunt into the Kidney channel at UB-40, or the portion of the Kidney channel that runs from the knee to the adrenal gland: the route of the UB channel divergence. Restoring the correct channel qi flow throughout this route terminates not just a person’s asthma attack, but ends the person’s tendency for asthma. Period.
