What You’ll Learn: In this course from our 2017 Acupuncture Technology Symposium, Dr. Kimberly Thompson teaches about non-needle acupuncture techniques that WORK, including microcurrent, light therapy, vibrational therapy and more. Non-needle techniques are an essential element of a versatile practice, and can often act as a gentle introduction to acupuncture that will set patients up to feel more comfortable with needles later on. Kimberly has a special affinity for vibrational therapy, which has helped her get great results for chronic pain and fibromyalgia patients, even when nothing else worked. If you’re interested in adding non-needle techniques to your practice, this is the course for you.
Instructions: While viewing course materials, please consider these questions:
- Describe in your own words why it’s important for acupuncturists to have a specialty within their scope of practice:
- What are some of the benefits for acupuncturists who have non-needle acupuncture techniques available in their clinic?
- When it comes to light therapy, what is the difference between a “whispering” and a “shouting” approach to treatment and how might each approach be used clinically?
- Explain the role of fascia tissue in relation to a modern explanation of TCM in relation to acupuncture channels and pathways.
When you have completed the course work, you will be required to answer these questions on the course worksheet prior to receiving your end-of-course assessment for credit.
Note: Course must be completed within 1 year from day of enrollment.
