What You’ll Learn: In this course from our 2017 Acupuncture Technology Symposium, Dr. Kimberly Thompson shares a variety of practical techniques and demonstrations to help you put together everything you’ve learned so far and return to your practice with a whole new arsenal of tools and techniques for treatment. You’ll see graphing demonstrations, treatment discussion, and demos for intake, treating the chief complaint, and balancing the graph. Finally, you’ll learn a few favorite techniques for wellness patients and difficult cases that will broaden your perspective and heighten your clinical skills.
