Foundations 2: essential needle skills
Time and location
About the Event
Note: Foundation 1: essential manual techniques is a prerequisite to attend this course.
A chance to develop your skills and thinking by using the skills from the foundation course and beginning to use the same techniques in your acupuncture. Here we look at the two main applications of the skills set: to identify and correct “deficiency” and “excess” in the body. The concept of identifying and reducing “excess” areas of constriction will be familiar to anyone with bodywork skills, whilst building tone in areas of laxity might be a less familiar group of skills. Here we look deeper into diagnostics and clinical applications, getting your treatments to address core physiology with manual therapy and acupuncture.
