Acupuncture and Segmental Desensitization in Pelvic Pain


This webinar will discuss the current scientific evidence for the treatment of pelvic pain conditions with acupuncture. The focus of the discussion will highlight the treatment protocols used and their deficits. We will then propose an Acupuncture Energetic approach with a discussion of the neuroanatomy of pelvic pain and the importance of including adequate segmental treatments. The focus will be on use of the Very Point® technique and dry needling approaches to treat both local and segmental dysfunction in pelvic pain.
