PATIENTS RECEIVE IMMEDIATE RESULTS WITH NEUROFUNCTIONAL ACUPUNCTURE
For many practitioners the “miracle” treatment remains elusive; the “one-shot” treatment, just a story. Now, back by popular demand in New York, the Neurofunctional Acupuncture approach for the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders is being taught by Dan Wunderlich, LAc.
Dan is part of an elite team of instructors contracted by the U.S. Military to train battlefield doctors in this EFFICIENT and EFFECTIVE method -- these doctors were awestruck by the immediate results delivered by Dan and his fellow instructors using this modern approach to acupuncture.
Created with Dan’s extensive knowledge of Oriental medicine and developed with his teaching experience from McMasters University in Ontario, Canada and the U.S. Military, this workshop series presents an amalgam of the most effective techniques and contemporary approaches to restoring normal nervous system activity, soft-tissue tensional integrity, and articular joint function. Practical sessions will cover neuroanatomical and segmental acupuncture techniques, methods for trigger point deactivation, and corrective myofascial release techniques.
Dan’s clear and highly organized teaching style, along with plenty of hands-on practice, will allow participants to leave the class with a new skill set and an improved ability to identify and effectively treat musculoskeletal problems. Participants will be able to use the techniques and see an improvement in their patient results IMMEDIATELY.
This workshop series provides treatment strategies for using acupuncture to improve function of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems based on a contemporary understanding of neuroanatomy and physiology. The May-2015 weekend emphasizes treatment strategies for lower extremity conditions (e.g., hip, knee and ankle dysfunctions). The June-2015 weekend emphasizes treatment strategies for upper extremity conditions (common shoulder problems, lateral elbow pain, median nerve compression syndrome, etc).
Each weekend workshop will include:
** A functional anatomy review of the extremity – that is, a discussion of the interplay of joints, muscles/soft tissue and nerve innervations needed to achieve or perform a movement or function.
** A discussion of the neurological mechanisms that can be used to provide a contemporary explanation of the phenomena of acupuncture, including peripheral and spinal segmental stimulation, as well as systemic (central) or visceral regulatory stimulation.
** Treatment strategies for tailoring the use of multi-segmental electrical acupuncture, such as the use of trigger point deactivation techniques, and corrective myofascial release techniques.
** Practical workshops to provide participants with hands-on experience to:
-- refine therapeutic goals
-- select appropriate input targets for needling
-- maximize treatment effectiveness
