Core Training in Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine for Post-Stroke Care with Claudia Citkovitz
15 Hour Course Beginning on February 17
With our unique practical skills and theoretical framework, acupuncturists can be of extraordinary benefit to patients at any stage of stroke survival, even years later – and also in preventive care, identifying and addressing constitutional and biomedical risk factors. Too often, school courses and research protocols jump to treating scalp and body points for motor impairment after stroke, barely scratching the surface of the medicine’s capabilities.
Using Acupuncture to Support Neuro-diverse Children with Rebecca Avern
6 Hour Course Beginning April 18
Acupuncture is a fantastic method of supporting these young people. It can address specific physical or mental-emotional difficulties, help them to feel more comfortable in their own skin and ease the intense emotions that may arise as a result of living in a world which is not really geared towards their needs.
During the course, we will look at the specific patterns of imbalance that often crop up in neurodiverse children and teens, effective treatment strategies, useful non-needle techniques and specific patient management strategies for this demographic. You will gain the confidence and skills to be able to start offering much-needed support to these young people now.
