Treating Musculoskeletal(MSK) conditions by integrating Western and Traditional East Asian Medicine (TEAM).
An integrated approach for Acupuncture & Tuina practitioners & final year students –
delivered by Alex Brazkiewicz
• Improve your patient diagnosis and treatment through a systematic approach toward MSK conditions;
• Learn how to integrate Channel Palpation and Applied Channel Theory with Western Orthopaedic (OT) & Manual Muscle Testing (MMT) in your diagnosis;
• Learn to ‘Release the Brakes” and to apply the principles of Muscle Energy Techniques (MET’s);
• Introduce Gua Sha and “pricking the vessels” into your distal and local treatments.
As practitioners are aware, the hardest part of any treatment is correct diagnosis. Classically channel
palpation was a major part of diagnosis (alongside pulse, tongue and asking questions) in the
acupuncturist’s repertoire, where the physiology of the channels was studied alongside Zang Fu (organ
diagnosis, Yin / Yang and Wu Xing (5-phases).
By integrating classical diagnosis with modern orthopaedic and manual muscle testing and a systematic
approach to treating MSK conditions, this 2½ day blended-learning course will improve your diagnostic
skills, thereby enhancing patient outcomes. Class sizes limited to 12 to maximise practical skill learning.
“When I initially qualified, I did not feel confident in dealing with Musculoskeletal conditions and pain reduction. It was at this time I was fortunate to meet Jason Robertson who then invited me to accompany him
to visit his teacher Professor Wang Ju Yi (co-author of Applied Channel Theory) in Beijing.
After further trips to China, Germany and Dublin to study with Professor Wang and his apprentices, together with completion of Arya Nielsen’s postgraduate diploma in Gua Sha and then completion of a 5-year journey to become an Osteopath, I continue to integrate this learning into my practice with a passion to share my learning to help you improve your treatment of MSK conditions.”

Acupuncture for Fertility and IVF Support (AFN Accredited)
with Paul Johnson
Saturday and Sunday October 3rd and 4th 9:30 to 5:00 pm – £190
Accredited by the Acupuncture Fertility Network (AFN)
This two-day seminar will review both the Western medical and TCM understanding of the menstrual cycle and will cover ways of boosting natural fertility and supporting IVF with acupuncture. It will look at troubleshooting so-called ‘unexplained’ infertility, an area where TCM can be of great benefit.
This seminar will also cover all the Western medical jargon and test results that you need to understand to be able to speak to your patients with confidence. A detailed outline of the day’s topics and an application form are in the attached document. Learning will be consolidated with case studies.
This seminar is suitable for third year students and graduates with an interest in learning more about this specialism. Acupuncture has become increasingly used to treat infertility and support IVF over the past decade and provides a large part of many acupuncturists’ income.
Attendees of this course will be eligible for membership of the Acupuncture Fertility Network.
Pre-requisites: Acupuncture third year students and graduates
