This two-day course is designed for practitioners who have previously undertaken a recognised acupuncture foundation course, have not practised for a couple of years and/or for those who wish to refresh their knowledge and skills in the clinical treatment of both acute and chronic pain.
Day one covers a review of the analgesic mechanisms of acupuncture, the health and safety implications including contraindication and precautions as well as discussion regarding the concept of the layering technique related to physiological mechanisms and clinical reasoning. Practical aspects of the day will cover the needling of the most common acupuncture points utilised in clinical practice based on meridians.
Day two will take the knowledge from day one and build on the understanding of prescriptions and treatment design. This includes incorporating points into the effective clinical management of common musculoskeletal conditions, which will be discussed in theory and then needled practically.
There is also the option of an admissions assessment at the end of day two to enable eligible delegates to attain AACP membership, in this case please email the AACP membership team on firstname.lastname@example.org for admission criteria. (the assessment is only eligible for Chartered Physiotherapists that are CSP and HCPC registered)
This course is open to health professionals with previous acupuncture training and who have a significant level of anatomical and physiological knowledge.
