Course Description: Part C of the PAANZ 2020 Enhanced Needling skills course is a two-day course on TCM theory and practice.

Enhanced Needling Skills: Parts A, B and C

The Enhanced Needling Skills (ENS) Parts A, B and C courses are designed to introduce safe needling and both Western and Traditional Chinese concepts of acupuncture practice. The courses are for participants who want to extend their acupuncture knowledge and skills beyond dry needling or those who need an acupuncture refresher course. The course is to be completed sequentially for participants who have only dry needling training or who have not completed the 80 hours of formal acupuncture training pre-requisite. Participants who have completed 80 hours of formal acupuncture training may participate in any course as needed.

Part C of the PAANZ 2020 Enhanced Needling skills course is a two-day course on TCM theory and practice.

Course Participants will be introduced to the richness of the conceptual model that is Traditional Chinese Medicine, and gain some understanding of how this model contains a diagnostic framework that allows a refining of acupuncture point selection – and often an enhanced treatment efficacy.

As an Acupuncturist I have been constantly impressed by how this ancient paradigm of treatment still has clinical relevance in our modern age. Coming from a strong background within the modern medical model you will enjoy how, with further education, you can enhance the efficacy of your acupuncture treatment by applying TCM concepts.
