Do you ever feel that you don’t quite nail the treatment of an injury? Do you ever wonder why some injuries don’t respond well to acupuncture or don’t resolve after a number of treatments? Do you find that some treatment protocols work short-term but then the pain recurs? The successful, conclusive and lasting treatment of an injury be it acute or chronic is dependent on correct diagnosis of the Sinew Channel affected and of the underlying systemic factors that allowed the injury to become chronic.
The Sinew Channels (Tendinomuscular Channels) bring Wei (defensive) Qi to the entire surface of the body. These channels and Wei Qi were first mentioned in the classical texts, the Ling Shu (Chapter 13) and Su Wen (Chapter 43).
In clinic, treatment of the Sinews dramatically speed recovery after injuries and surgeries, burns, breaks and fractures.
Once the correct diagnosis is made, protocols to free trapped Wei Qi in the affected Sinew Channel can result in seemingly miraculous, staggering results in the clinic.
What you will learn:
This two day seminar will allow participants to better understand and practice Sinew Channel treatments. The focus will be on the treatment of chronic injuries. Practitioners will:
- Learn the theory of Sinew Channels.
- Learn how to correctly diagnose the affected Sinew Channel (which is not always related to the location of the initial injury)
- Learn protocols to successfully treat sinews
- Observe live case studies of many patients
With study and practice, practitioners will acquire the confidence to reliably treat the following conditions:
- Pathogenic factors trapped in the musculoskeletal level resulting in pain, stiffness, tightness, weakness, numbness, neuropathy, allergies, digestive issues, mood disorders, hypersensitivity to weather and temperature.
- Acute and chronic injuries.
- New and old scars from surgery or burns
- The misalignment of joints, as in the case of bunions, for example.
