Course Overview
Students and fellow practitioners often ask me what makes an average acupuncture treatment an optimal one. My answer always revolves around the point combinations used for the treatment. What is your strategy?

Learning acupuncture point combinations (APC's) allows practitioners to use fewer points in their treatments, saving time and possible patient discomfort. You will learn how points should be grouped together, to provide optimal treatment results for different conditions like mental and emotional turmoil, musculoskeletal complaints, sports injuries, and so much more.

The course will discuss the reasons behind why acupuncture point combinations matter. Then we immerse ourselves in 26 different APC's from modern, pre-modern and classical texts. Each of these APC's are defined, analysed, queried, and sometimes even edited slightly. All of this is done in order to better understand each of the acupuncture point combinations.

This workshop isn't designed to make you change everything about your treatments; rather, it aids your current treatments. It shows you ways that you can tweak your acupuncture point combinations for the betterment of your patient's health.

    *CEU/CPD Approvals

    Some accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days. If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days. We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way. Just visit the course page in your Net of Knowledge account and click the "Request Approval" button at the top. Each "Course and CEUs/CPDs" purchase grants you 1 request per accreditation body. If you request a course approval and do not complete it before its new expiration date, you will need to purchase another "CEU/CPD Add-On" to make another request. If the course is ineligible for approval with an accreditation body due to their subject-matter policies, it will be listed as "[Ineligible]", and no requests will be possible for the course.
