SMAC Program New Class Series

Assessment & Treatment
of the Channel Sinews (Jingjin)


We are excited to announce a brand new series of classes called the “Assessment and Treatment of the Channel Sinews” that has received excellent reviews!

Here is the class description for the next A&T of the Channel Sinews for Module II The Low Back, Hip and Groin:

Assessment & Treatment of the Channel Sinews (Jingjin)
Instructors—Brian Lau, AP, C.SMAMatt Callison, L.Ac.
  • This 2-day class highlights how the channel sinews (jingjin) organize efficient movement patterns and balance the major joint structures of the lumbo-pelvic-hip region. Focus is on understanding how imbalances in these channels can contribute to pain and injury.
  • Practitioners will learn to accurately assess lumbo-pelvic-hip imbalances with functional movement examinations, orthopedic examinations (OE) and manual muscle testing (MMT). These assessments will be used to build treatment protocols using innovative acupuncture and myofascial release techniques to align the musculoskeletal system, decrease tension, reduce pain and enhance healing of the injured tissue.
  • This class sets up the Assessment and Treatment of the Low Back, Hip and Groin Injuries course, which teaches diagnosis of the exact location of the injured tissue and teaches complete protocols for local, adjacent, and distal treatments for musculoskeletal injury.

We strive to constantly improve our programs to bring you the latest, most clinically relevant sports medicine acupuncture education! Be sure and check out all of our class descriptions!
