Topographic Acupuncture is the system of minimal needle, distal point acupuncture that utilizes concepts of “mirror” and “image” to choose points to treat virtually any pathology in the body. Topographic Acupuncture is known for its ultra-rapid clinical results. This 2-day workshop is the second of a 2-part series. In the first module we introduced the theoretical basis for Topographic Acupuncture, as well as the 6 basic systems for treating specific, well-delineated pathological processes in the body. The participants were amazed by results that superseded any that they had imagined could have resulted from acupuncture. In the second module we will investigate the use of Topographic Acupuncture to treat global vs local disharmonies. We will also learn to treat syndromes that are too common in modern human cultures such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, immune deficiency, autoimmune disease, endocrinological disorders, and more. Lastly, we will discover how to use Topographic Acupuncture to Balance the body by special combinations of points. As in the first module, students will first observe the application of Topographic Acupuncture, then learn to derive “Point Combinations”, then actually treat real patients with clinical disharmonies. By the end of the weekend course, virtually every student will have experienced a positive clinical result that many describe as “miraculous”. The astute student will be prepared to treat both basic and complex disharmonies after this 2nd advanced Topographic Acupuncture module.
