Course Overview
This is a Live Webinar event that will be held on May 20, 2023 - 12pm PDT, 3pm EDT.

The enhancement of performance in athletes and the active patient is a most interesting topic. In this course Whitfield Reaves covers much of his experience with athletes over the last forty years, including the Olympics, cycling and running events, and the triathlon, both nationally and internationally.

Acupuncture and the principles of Chinese medicine can support performance, both for the athlete as well as the active. For acupuncture specifically, body points will be discussed that have been used by the presenter for pre-performance treatment. Also, auricular points with retaining needles will be covered for their use during the actual performance itself. And herbal medicine also has its place with sports medicine. Whitfield will cover formulas that complete a simple yet precise system of managing the athlete and keeping them both healthy & fit.

Treatment phases will be presented using yin yang theory. The yin phase is considered the training period. The yang phase is competition and performing. True to TCM principles, both the yin and the yang phases need to be addressed for effective management of the athlete. You can not have yang (performance) with yin (rest)!

We hope this course will give the viewer some new ideas as well as increased skills and confidence in their care of the athlete and the active patient. Whitfield rarely speaks on this subject, and there will be new material he has developed over the last 40 years on care of the athlete.

The recordings will be made available for you to review after the event!
