Acupuncturists are supposed to be experts in therapeutic stimulation but these technical skills are often insufficiently taught. This engaging workshop is delivered by veteran practitioner and educator Charlie Buck and will give you increased confidence in your clinical work.

In day one you get a concise review of needle technique as taught in China’s medical schools, including:

  • point palpation & needling depth
  • stages of needling & methods to obtain deqi
  • understanding & applying standard bu, xie & even techniques
  • psyche aspects & holding qi
  • considering “dose” in acupuncture

day two builds on the skills you gained in day one and includes explanations, demos and practice of more advanced techniques, including:

  • qi propagation methods
  • burning mountain needling
  • cool abyss needing
  • kan-li harmonisation needling

Using lecture, video and supervised practice Charlie has delivered this hugely popular seminar in small groups to over 1000 acupuncturists across the UK and EU.Feedback is consistently excellent from new graduates as well as from practitioners with decades of experience.

"An excellent day. Inspiring stuff which I have already incorporated into my practice. I’d happily recommend the day to fellow practitioners."  SK
