Course Overview

This is a Live Webinar event that will be held on September 17, 2022 - 8pm BST, 9pm CEST, 10pm IDT. In this three hour webinar, Whitfield Reaves will share some of his favorite of sports injury and pain. You probably know many of these points, but creative refining and skillful use of these approaches adds precision and balance to the treatments in the acupuncture sports medicine clinic. The first step in treating pain often uses points distal to the site of injury. Besides the familiar extraordinary points, there are numerous other possibilities available but often overlooked. The following are the general categories of treatment methodology that Whitfield suggests in his text as well as his webinars. Refining these well-known point patterns, and making them familiar to the practitioner, will often be the difference in successful treatment outcomes. 1. The Jing-well Point The jing-well point is as distal as you can go! And as the beginning point of the tendino-muscle meridian (jingjin), treatment often starts here. 2. The Shu-stream Point Combination Paired shu-stream points using the Six Divisions offers a dynamic yet simple protocol with upper/lower and right/left balance points. 3. The Opposite Side Anatomical mirroring on the opposite side. 4. Treating Upper/Lower Upper/lower anatomical mirroring. 5. General Point Combinations Whitfield will cover many of his favorite protocols gathered since first studying in China in 1981. Learn, understand, and refine these common point protocols and experience successful treatment outcomes. The recordings will be made available for you to review after the event!
