Trigger Point Needling for the Head, Neck & Shoulder
This is a hands-on workshop that focuses on the identification, palpation, and needling of myofascial trigger points associated with the head, neck, and shoulder. The techniques learned in the seminar are invaluable in the treatment of many pain conditions and are easily incorporated into an existing acupuncture practice. At the conclusion of the seminar the practitioner will have an anatomical understanding of trigger points, as well as peripheral and central sensitization. They will have an understanding of the role trigger points play in the channel system as well as key clinical signs to recognize when employing trigger point needling. Lastly they will have gained confidence in needling sensitive structures of the head, neck, chest, and upper back outside of their standard education.
