Course Overview
Treatment results from practitioner to practitioner can vary greatly when treating a condition. Even more confounding is when treatment results vary when different practitioners treat the same patients with the same points, but somehow one practitioner's treatment results in a "so-so" treatment, and the other produces a fantastic result. Dr. Chang will discuss the importance of needle depth, direction, and engaging the De Qi sensation as factors in creating a "Wow" treatment. Based on her years of clinical experience, she will help both new and experienced practitioners refine their needling techniques for more effective and consistent outcomes.
  • Learn what causes pain in TCM so that you can effectively treat it clinically
  • Learn the following needling techniques: deqi, quqi, liuqi, the concept of heaven, human and earth layers when inserting acupuncture needles, Dao Ma, Dong Qi and Qian Yin techniques
  • How to effectively treat various types of pain and get quick results with your patients in clinic
  • Review the TCM time clock and what this can tell us in the patient?s history of their presenting concern.

    What People Are Saying

    An excellent presenter - very clear and to the point as well as engaging. I would love to see a live seminar by Christine.

    Elise B.- New Zealand

    Great teachings and practical tips for everyday success in acupuncture.

    Shahin M.- Canada

    I recommend this course for anyone wanting new ideas on improving needling technique and effectiveness. It's also good for those of us who can use a reminder on distal point selection for pain issues. It's brief, informative and fun. Includes some good examples.
