Segmental Regulation Systems – Western Medicine – Webinar and on location

Segmental Regulation Systems – Western Medicine – Webinar and on location

There are quite some therapies in which (predominantly) external stimuli aim to influence not only local complaints, but even the more to elicit remote therapeutic effects. The glasses you wear determine the contrasts you see. The relation between external stimulus and local or remote effects are often explained from the therapy specific point of view. Neuroanatomy and neurophysiology help to understand the relation between stimuli and their therapeutic effects as applied within different complementary medicine therapies.
