Balancing the Autonomic nervous System and Optimal Treatment Position
This year we are very fortunate to have Michelle Meramour, MSOM, CA as our instructor and PDA provider. Michelle is the owner and creator of Body-Feedback™ for Health and has been in practice since 2002 with a focus on infertility and pregnancy care, and currently sees 40 patients per week while teaching and writing. Ms. Meramour graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in September 2002 with a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine (MSOM). She continued her post-graduate training directly under Bob Flaws at the Blue Poppy Institute, Boulder CO. Ms. Meramour completed the Chinese Medical Gynecology Courses 1-5 for 110 CEU’s in September 2004 and is certified in traditional Chinese medical gynecology 2007.
Balancing the Autonomic Nervous System and the Optimal Treatment Position utilizes five-element theory and Body-Feedback palpation-based techniques to enhance acupuncture treatment results. Beginning each treatment with optimizing the nervous system encourages deep relaxation and reduces pain associated with the needling process. Participants learn Body-Feedback palpation methods for evaluating and treating five-element organ dysfunction and meridian imbalances affecting the nervous system. In-depth lecture notes explain the sympathetic, parasympathetic, and enteric nervous systems and how they interact with the TCM pathology. Case studies demonstrate how treatment position, along with needling the abdomen, spine, head, and ears, affects the nervous system.
- Participants learn Body-Feedback palpation-based techniques to assess five-element organ dysfunction and determine the optimal treatment position.
- Participants learn abdominal, back, auricular, and scalp acupuncture treatments to incorporate in their current treatment style.
- Participants will have a greater understanding of how the sympathetic, parasympathetic, and enteric nervous system affects acupuncture treatments and healing.
