How This Can Benefit Your Practice
Shoulder and Neck Pain are two of the most common ailments that lead patients to seek help from bodywork and acupuncture therapists. No matter what area you focus your practice on, you will always have patients asking you for help with shoulder and neck pain.These few simple manual techniques get instant measurable results that are clear to the patient in the vast majority of cases. Patients will see improvement in both pain and range of motion.We made the mistakes so you don't have to! Over the years we have studied many techniques, all of which have great value. The core techniques we will teach you in this weekend still form the heart of what we do and for good reason. These techniques were taught to us ten years ago by a fantastic practitioner, Phil Macqueen. Since then, we have put them into practice with countless satisfied patients.In many cases, these techniques are enough to fully treat the problem. In cases where more is needed, they can get you your powerful initial result and reduction in pain and then be supplemented with anything else you do. They are not designed to replace your current style of practice rather to assist you to be able to fully express your current approach.Gaining confidence and respect from your patients in the first consultation is essential in their decision to trust and book in with you longer term. When, after a few simple procedures, your patients see improvement, they will trust you to spend the time that you need to find and treat the deeper roots of their issues.
Going Deeper and Finding the Roots
We are also Chinese medicine practitioners and have experience in other modalities such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, qigong and sports massage. We have also trained with scores of other great teachers. From this extensive experience and accumulated knowledge we have mapped out all the different scenarios where these powerful techniques have limitations. For the first time in this seminar, we will be laying out our clinical experience and practical solutions for each scenario. These scenarios include:~ Significant blood stagnation causing a lot of pain or bruising~ A 'trapped exterior' condition that needs release (also relates to headache, migraine)~ Nerve impingement~ Knots, Trigger Points or 'Ashi' Points~ Frozen Shoulder~ Muscle Tears~ Neurological Issues~ Issues at the bone level~ Injuries - acute and chronic~ Treating the elderly
