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.
