CM 724 - Advanced Acu-Moxa Techniques II


Credit(s): 1.50

In these two courses, students refine their hand-skill and acupuncture needling technique, and learn a variety of additional adjunct therapies, including different styles of moxibustion, cupping, guasha, bleeding and teishin. Referencing knowledge gained in the concurrent clinical medicine courses, students learn to assess which techniques and modalities to select for optimal clinical benefit in different clinical scenarios. There is a particular focus on the application of holographic theory (microsystems) and channel theory in the diagnosis and treatment of pain, stroke and musculoskeletal disorders. Needling techniques and strategies using muscle motor points, trigger points, and traditional Chinese medical points are practiced primarily in relationship to the treatment of pain. Prerequisite(s): CM 634 . Note: Additional fee required
