As clinicians we have had our share of difficult patients and difficult cases. In this workshop, attendees will learn specific techniques for obtaining faster results in some of the most difficult cases, including severe paralysis (from stroke or spinal cord injury).

Recent biomedical research will show how acupuncture works via the musculoskeletal, peripheral and central nervous systems. Specific scalp micro-systems will be reviewed and practiced as well as learning an iterative treatment paradigm to obtain and manage Qi in order to reduce pain and promote higher function.
