Trigger Points: An Investigation of Trigger Point Acupuncture / Dry Needling
Josh Lerner

Beyond the conflicts around scope of practice, the theories and practice of dry needling and intra-muscular therapies give us a deeper look into how acupuncture works on ahshi or trigger points from a bio-medicine physiological perspective.

Practitioners of this rebranded form of acupuncture have a modern biomedicine perspective on how trigger points, as well as how localized qi and blood stagnation, come about and can be resolved. It's a language that can be useful.
In this class we take a bi–ocular view for a well-schooled practitioner's perspective on physiology, trigger points, acupuncture and the fantastic career of Janet Travell.

In This Conversation We Discuss:

  • Importance of building a palpatory vocabulary
  • Why developing strong palpatory skills helps with gathering sensory information
  • How chronic injuries can have an element of deep-rooted cold
  • Skillful use of language to help your patients feel more comfortable and that you understand them
  • Case study working with trigger points
