Motor entry point locations and needle protocols for over 50 muscles of the neck, shoulder and upper extremity.

Observing the motor nerve entrance into the muscle can help the practitioner enhance their skills and appreciation of needle depth. Muscles not included in this recording are the pectoralis major, rhomboids minor and major and the middle and lower trapezius. These muscles are shown and practiced in the live-seminar SMAC courses under guidance.

    What People Are Saying

    I highly recommend this great course. The information and instructions are clear and detailed, supported by close up videos of demonstrations and cadaver. The best part is the ability to access the course repeatedly at your own pace. It has given me greater confidence.

    Randy C.- United States of America

    A truly unique program unlike anything out there today, the SMAC program takes the licensed acupuncturist to the next level in clinical practice. This program adds depth and understanding to how acupuncture works, and is a must for anyone who wants to refine their technical skills.

    Amanda H.- United States of America

    I LOVE the SMAC program. It's the best integration of Western and Eastern practice in Orthopedic & Sports Medicine learning.

    Yvonne G.- United States of America

    I recommend Mark Callison's Neck, Shoulder and Upper extremity module in the highest of terms for continuing TCM education. His regular repetition of the channels/acupuncture points, discussion of the latest TCM debates based on research, cadaver and life model demonstration were beyond excellent.

    Elizabeth M.- United States of America

    These classes will make you a better practitioner! I can’t say enough about the depth of knowledge that you will receive by taking these courses. I love that we can watch these over and over again to keep learning.
