We are pleased to announce an exciting NEW workshop, Pain Management Through Acupuncture: A Comprehensive Approach, presented by Dr. Bryan L. Frank. This 2-day workshop will combine lecture with case presentations to examine the approach to pain through neuro-anatomic acupuncture and related techniques and through integrating numerous classic energetic theories into the case of pain. To assure a high quality learning experience, attendance is limited to 40 participants. Purpose and Objectives:
Chronic and acute pain are the most common events that lead patients to seek acupuncture care. Acupuncture may not only ameliorate the pain experience, but may also promote healing through a variety of mechanisms. Additionally, various paradigms and traditions now encompass the acupuncture corpus available to the practitioner.
Pain Management: A Comprehensive Approach is a workshop designed to reinforce the use and application of common acupuncture techniques, as well as to explore various approaches less commonly employed though very effective in their use.
The seminar will consider the approach to pain through neuro-anatomic acupuncture and related techniques, and through integrating numerous classic energetic theories into the care of pain. Additionally, acupuncture micro-systems will be discussed for use in pain and its proper integration into the acupuncture treatment.
An important aspect of chronic pain that is unresponsive to healing is the presence of blockages. This interference may prevent patient recovery from any medical input but may be addressed many times, when they are understood and identified. Blockages to healing and recovery will be explored as they may be identified through acupuncture, micro-systems and related techniques.
A consideration of selected pain conditions as well as selected paper cases will also be presented. The physician will be able to study and consider a wide variety of treatment options for the management of pain in a single intensive weekend.
