Webinar: Oncology acupuncture

There is a great need for practitioners who have skills in the field of integrative Chinese Medicine oncology. Almost any acupuncturist deals in their clinic with patients affected by cancer. Oncology acupuncture is a special field which offers the acupuncturist distinct tools to help both patients with cancer and patients who have had cancer in the past.

Medical Ethics – WM

Medical Ethics – WM

Sooner or later, incidentally or frequently, therapists will meet in their contacts with patients circumstances where different options to act present themselves. In such cases it is often not a matter of choosing between just black and white, but merely between the one grey and the other. In this seminar we will explore ethics and participants will work together on practical issues preferably brought in from their own practice. This seminar promises to be a playful and highly interactive training day. Items learned will be applicable in all kinds of situations in one’s own practice.

Upper limbs Musculoskeletal Pain – AcuOsteo method – physiopathology and treatment by Acupuncture and Osteopathy

Upper limbs Musculoskeletal Pain – AcuOsteo method – physiopathology and treatment by Acupuncture and Osteopathy

Musculoskeletal pain is one of the most frequent reasons for consultation in my own clinic. In my experience, Acupuncture and Osteopathic medicine are two effective techniques and they are synergistic in treating pain. Often pain is generically reported to a widespread area of a joint, together with some rigidity and it can be difficult to identify the Acupuncture Channel involved in a musculoskeletal pain. Osteopathic manipulative treatment’s aim is to bring back joints in their physiological position, reduce pain and limitation of the movement, and help to identify the channel that needs to be treated with Acupuncture.
