An Introduction to Abdominal Acupuncture
Pre-Symposium with Dave Shipsey

Please note, space is limited for this event!

Abdominal acupuncture is a relatively new form of acupuncture which was developed by Prof. Bo ZhiYun over the course of approximately 20 years – it was introduced in China in 1991. It is still relatively unknown in many parts of the West and offers a comprehensive and powerful system to treat a multitude of Musculoskeletal, painful acute and chronic conditions (see Dave Shipsey’s book “Mastering the Art of Abdominal Acupuncture, a concise guide to treating numerous painful conditions” – the only book written in English on this topic). It is a Micro-System with Mega Power, for many reasons, which will be detailed in this one-day seminar.

Abdominal acupuncture is easy to implement into your practice, it is simple to learn and once the subtleties of this system are understood and refined it can be implemented in a fast, effective, and reliable way. It offers clients an almost pain-free form of acupuncture that has many nurturing effects which enables it to give a multitude of side benefits that are more far-reaching than regular acupuncture. It allows many problems to be treated in one session without the need for complicated prescription formulation or complex diagnosis.

This one-day seminar is designed to give you hands-on experience so that you can explore and refine your skill and practice the subtleties of abdominal diagnosis, abdominal point location, abdominal needle techniques and formulating abdominal prescriptions. You will also learn why abdominal acupuncture packs such a powerful therapeutic punch, and you will also learn a number of tried and tested methods to treat a variety of commonly seen painful conditions. You will learn the abdominal treatment protocol in a step – by – step manner so that you are confident to use this system upon completion.
