Course Overview
This is a Live Webinar event that will be held on June 10, 2023 - 12pm PDT, 3pm EDT.

In the first half of 2023, we offer the Acupuncture Sports Medicine Intensive. It consists of four three-hour live events on an array of interesting topics. It starts with treating the low back with "the triad", one of Whitfield's most treasured clinical tools and teaching points. It continues with treating neck and shoulder posture as well as varied precise protocols for knee pain and dysfunction.

The Intensive concludes with a topic Whitfield rarely speaks publically on: athletic performance. Details of both the yin (training) and the yang (competing) phase of the athlete are discussed. Of course, each of these two phases have different work loads. Acupuncture points and protocols, the herbal prescription, and the additional lifestyle requirements are totally different in each of these two phases. And it all follows the tenets of yin and yang. With the competition of a big race or event, the athlete better have a solid base of yin. Yang results from an abundance of yin. And there is no arguing with yin and yang!

This Session should have some lively discussion and elaboration on both treatment protocols for pain and dysfunction as well as enhancing of athletic performance. But you don't need to have taken the Intensive to attend. After a review, all topics of sports acupuncture will be open to discussion with question and answers. We invite all to participate whether you have taken the other courses or not.

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