ADV. TRIGGER POINTS WITH KAZUNORI ITOH – POSTPONED

October 24, 2020 @ 2:00 am - October 25, 2020 @ 10:30 am PDT

CEU CLASS: 14 CE HOURS, CEP 436

POSTPONED

Can be applied towards a Certificate in Japanese Medicine
Join Dr. Kazunori Itoh for a weekend seminar on pain management using advanced modern Japanese techniques including trigger point acupuncture, micro-current acupuncture, and moxa. Trigger points often develop out of acute or repetitive overuse of muscles, musculoskeletal imbalance, injury or other kind of strain. Focusing on trigger points is very effective for treating a wide variety of pain, including peripheral pain, spine mediated pain (which affects internal organs), and brain mediated pain (which can impact the entire body).

Dr. Itoh earned a bachelor’s degree in acupuncture and moxibustion from the Meiji University of Integrative Medicine, and went on to complete his doctorate at the same institution. After a stint as assistant lecturer in clinical acupuncture and moxibustion, he spent a year at the University of Toronto studying with Professor B. J. Sessle. He is currently associate professor in the Department of Clinical Acupuncture and Moxibustion at Meiji University of Integrative Medicine. His research specialty is muscular pain, and in 2004 he established an outpatient clinic for fibromyalgia sufferers. He is studying the use of acupuncture and moxibustion in the treatment of fibromyalgia, both clinically and as basic research.
