Trigger Point Acupuncture Continuing Education – January 27 & 28
Gain a competitive advantage by providing a knowledgeable and more comprehensive practice with training in Advanced Trigger Point Acupuncture.
Two Day Seminar in Trigger Point Acupuncture. Day One will be an introduction to theory, technique, and treatment. Day Two is focused entirely on Advanced techniques for treating the Shoulder.
Acupuncturists need to take the lead in any form of invasive needling. This very affordable workshop (up to 15 CEUs) targets this area of Dry Needling and Trigger Point Therapy and prepares Acupuncturists to be competitive in this area.
Gain this competitive advantage by becoming even more knowledgeable and comprehensive using this style of practice. PIHMA is excited to welcome guest instructor and PIHMA Alumnus Adrian Hillyer, L.Ac., who is teaching this approach to acupuncture students at Bastyr so they can take the lead in this perceived form of practice.
This course helps Acupuncturists focus on “trigger point therapy” language and related techniques to not only relate more effectively to a western medical audience but to also ensure and demonstrate it is delivered with greater safety and expertise based on the acupuncturist’s extensive background and training. As experts in needling, Acupuncturists need to develop diverse ways of presenting their craft to be more compatible
in the growing market.
Practitioners and Students may take the entire weekend or choose to take single day modules (Note: Introduction Module is a prerequisite for the Advanced Shoulder treatment module).
