    Back by popular demand!  Don't miss this exciting opportunity for practical, hands-on study with a highly respected and engaging instructor – Dan Wunderlich!

     

    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.


    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 first weekend emphasizes treatment strategies for lower extremity conditions (e.g., hip, knee and ankle dysfunctions).  The second weekend emphasizes treatment strategies for upper extremity conditions (common shoulder problems, lateral elbow pain, median nerve compression syndrome, etc).


    TOPICS COVERED

    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

    It is indeed a privilege to be a practitioner of Oriental Healing Arts – to be part of the process whereby patients may manifest their full healing potential. This involvement should leave a practitioner feeling vital, joyful and full of enthusiasm. Unfortunately this is not always the case. Many find it initially difficult to build a client base while others after a few years of clinical practice find their energy and enthusiasm waning, leading to unsatisfactory clinical results and poor patient retention. If this state of affairs continues it can lead to Burnout and illness. Many leave the profession as a result.
     
     
    It should not be this way. 
    It DOES NOT NEED to be this way! 
    By the traditional practices of personal Qi cultivation and protection, understanding Qi flow in the healing environment and maximizing the receptiveness of the patient, the vitality, health and enthusiasm of the practitioner can be preserved and improved clnical results can be obtained.
    The aim of this practical and experiential workshop will be to:
    1. Provide methods that will enable practitioners to cultivate, maintain and preserve personal vitality.
    2. Provide methods to safeguard against both dissipation of energy and absorbing perverse energy in the clinical setting.
    3. Provide practical tips for improving Qi flow in the clinical surroundings.
    4. Enhance the practitioner’s sense of personal Qi flow and the Qi flow of patients.
    5. Highlight the signs of Insipient Burnout and show how to “cycle” clinical practice.
    This workshop is especially important for those about to embark upon a career in clinical practice , for those who, after a few years in practice, are experiencing lack of vitality and enthusiasm, and for those who seek tools to improve personal vitality, prevent burnout and improve overall treatment results.  
    Topics Covered:
    1. Simple exercises to increase vitality and awareness of Qi Flow
    2. Methods of protecting against perverse energy
    3. Organizing the clinic space to maximize Qi flow
    4. Building Patient-Practitioner Rapport
    5. Determining Optimal Working Hours
    6. Role of intent and being present in clinical practice
     NCCAOM PDAs  6 (pending)
    SEATING IS LIMITED. REGISTER EARLY!

    Quick Links...

    Greetings!

    Zheng Gu Tui Na is pleased to announce our popular Tui Na Level 1 course is returning to Seneca Falls, NY!  This seminar provides the foundation to our Tui Na and Zheng Gu series.  It can be taken as a gateway into those series, or as a stand-alone seminar.  Register now at zhenggutuina.com.


    Zheng Gu Tui Na Level 1
    Full Body Sequence
     
    ZHENG GU TUI NA is a complete healing system for the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic pain, musculoskeletal injury, and internal disorders.  This first level of a series of four is designed to supply the practitioner with powerful treatment and diagnostic tools that are immediate and practical.  A strong base of internal cultivation in Qi Gong will provide the student with health and well-being and lay the foundation for the internal power that will be critical for some of the intermediate and advanced treatment and diagnostic techniques. 

    This class is open to all, no experience required.  Our students are acupuncturists, LMT's, PT's and health care professionals of all kinds, martial artists, weekend warriors and "soccer moms and dads".  Taking this class will give you the tools to restore balance back to the body and help your patients, friends and family recover from both chronic and acute injury.

    TUI NA LEVEL 1: FULL BODY SEQUENCE is designed around a full-body regulatory tuina treatment, which is divided into three parts: the back; the lower limbs; the neck, face and upper limbs. While together these three parts serve as an integrated regulatory treatment for the whole body, they can also be used independently. Performing the full-body sequence enables the student to learn sixteen hand techniques in the context of an actual treatment.

    The key element in this sequence is what we refer to as the Back Protocol which ties together the three parts of the full-body sequence. More complete explanations of the treatment of the upper and lower limbs will be presented in Levels II and III. Hand Techniques taught in this level are the most basic; competency in these techniques is required to progress to further levels.

    About Zheng Gu Tui Na

    Zheng Gu and Die Da (hit and fall) medicine have a long and rich history: developed by generals and martial arts masters, they are known for their speed and effectiveness in producing dramatic results to resolve musculo-skeletal disorders.  Traditionally passed through family lineages, or from martial arts master to disciple, this amazing art has largely been lost in modern-day China. Co-Founders of Zheng Gu Tui Na, Tom Bisio and Frank Butler have organized these materials into a coherent, teachable system.  From the development of internal power to the hand techniques, everything has been broken down to provide the maximum ease of transmission.  Zheng Gu Mobilizations and Chinese Die Da techniques are famous throughout China for being extremely effective in the treatment of trauma and musculoskeletal disorders.
     


    franktom

    The founders of Zheng Gu Tui Na, Tom Bisio, L.Ac. and Frank Butler, L.Ac. both learned in traditional apprenticeship settings. They have created a training method that duplicates the intense, practical clinical experience of this method of learning without the lack of structure and organization which often characterizes apprenticeships.

    By emphasizing body awareness through Qi Gong and a hands-on practical approach to teaching, Zheng Gu Tu Na can help physical therapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, martial artists or anyone interested in promoting health through Chinese medicine understand the foundation principles and methods which make Chinese medicine so effective.

    Instructor Jen Resnick, L.Ac., has been teaching with ZGTN since 2008.  She attended Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in NY and began an internship with ZGTN co-founder Frank Butler at Soho Herbs & Acupuncture in 2003, which she continues today.

     

    An international champion and nationally-renown martial arts instructor, Jen began her TCM practice in the Bay Area of San Francisco where she also was the Executive Director and Head Instructor of Hand To Hand, a community martial arts center.  There, she combined Chinese medicine theory with the practice of martial arts, qi gong and meditation to investigate the path of somatic healing and empowerment through movement.  Her training in Qi Gong and Zheng Gu Tui Na trauma medicine allows her, in turn, to effectively treat sports injuries and musculoskeletal pain.

     

    Jen is also a founding member of the Global Alternative Healthcare Project, one of the first organizations to offer TCM-based medical aid internationally.  She has traveled to Indonesia, Nepal, and worked with Native American and Latino communities in the US, delivering free healthcare to people in need.

     

    Jen's educational background includes a B.A. in Semiotics from Brown University and graduate studies at San Francisco State University.  She holds a M.S.T.O.M from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and is nationally certified with the NCCAOM in Chinese herbs and acupuncture.

    Bo's Method of Abdominal Acupuncture (taught by Paul Ryan, L.Ac.)

     

    Level 1 at Swedish Institute, NYC, NY - May 17-18, 2014 


    About Abdominal Acupuncture:  Bo's Method of Abdominal Acupuncture (AA) is a unique, therapeutic system created by Professor Bo Zhi-yun. It is based upon his discovery of a prenatal channel system and the Shenque Channel System (SCS). The new lineage is the product of more than 40 years of clinical research by Dr. Bo. BMAA integrates Western medicine diagnosis with zangfu pattern identification. It uses manualized point formulas that are disease specific and applied in standardized treatment procedures.  These characteristics increase the speed of learning, improve clinical efficacy and enable reproducibility for clinical research.  By using light manipulations and shallow insertions of needles with gauges between 0.22 mm and 0.16 mm, it is virtually painless.  It offers effective treatment for deficient, chronic, and difficult-to-treat diseases in a way that is well accepted by patients.

    Level 1 Course Description:   This course will be a basic, practical introduction to Bo's Method of Abdominal Acupuncture for licensed acupuncturists.  Students will learn:

     

    - Basic theory of Bo's Method of Abdominal Acupuncture and upper body point function and point location techniques

    - Treatment application protocols

    - Point formulas for stiff neck, adhesive capsulitis, lateral epicondylitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, cervical spondylosis

    - Evaluation techniques


    Paul Ryan, L.Ac. (NY, China) is the first Westerner to graduate with a Master's degree in Acupuncture from the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine.  He has been researching, practicing, and teaching Chinese medicine for the past 18 years.  Paul has worked as a clinical acupuncture specialist, clinical instructor and lecturer at the Guangdong Provincial Hospital of TCM.  Currently, he is an acupuncture preceptor at the Lutheran Medical Center and acts as a liaison between GDHTCM and LMC for academic exchange and research as well as maintaining a private practice in New York City.  He is the only Western apprentice of Dr. Bo and is his "inner-room" apprentice.  Paul has translated extensively for Dr. Bo, provided clinical instruction to Abdominal Acupuncture clinics in China and taught BMAA at Bo's Research Institute of AA in Beijing.

    Wisdom and Compassion In Action
    The Humla region of Nepal is one of the most sacred places on earth. Located on the border of Tibet, Humla is in the midst of the spectacular Himalayan mountain range; secluded from modern life, it remains home to the ancient spiritual and pre-Buddhist culture of Bon. However, due in part to this isolation, the Humli people confront serious challenges in accessing healthcare. By undertaking this trip to the Humla region you will:
    Be of service by delivering acupuncture and healthcare to hundreds of Humli villagers.
    Learn ancient Bon meditation and healing practices from Tibetan Bon Lama, Tempa Dukte Lama.
    Experience the blessings, prayers, and rituals of the indigenous Shamans.
    Plant the seed of a larger effort to protect this Tibetan indigenous culture, which is currently at risk.
    We hope you will join us for this profound journey of service and compassion.
    If you are unable to participate in this trip, please consider making a tax deductible donation for The Humla Medical Service Trip. With your donations we can purchase needles, herbs and other essential medical supplies to treat hundreds of villagers in Humla.
    May the merit of your generosity benefit all beings!
