Title: Fascia-Energy Acupuncture Technique - An Introductory Acupuncture Course Designed Specifically for Physiotherapists
Date: October, 28th 2020
Time: 12pm EST
 
Webinar Description:
Over the past 10 years there has been an increasing interest in treating various pain syndromes with acupuncture or dry needling and many courses developed to teach Canadian physiotherapists are based on a neuro-anatomical approach (or the Western approach). One of the emphases of this course, which is significantly different from other acupuncture course, is that it is designed by physiotherapists for physiotherapists to integrate acupuncture into physiotherapy practice.
 
Webinar Objectives:
• To acquire fundamental knowledge in fascia physiology, acupuncture analgesia, the relationship with TCM Meridian theory, safe practice in acupuncture
• To apply the theory to various pain syndromes
• To integrate acupuncture into physiotherapy management in various conditions
