THE EAST AND WEST OF HEADACHES
with Barbara Blanchard

Sunday, September 9, 2018
9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.  

Headaches are a common clinical condition that can benefit from Acupuncture and Acupressure treatment. This workshop will study the different types of headaches as defined by western medicine, and also, eastern medicine. Primary headaches include migraine, tension, cluster and sinus headaches. Secondary and other headaches are often related to traumatic brain injury, TMJ, hypertension and other causes.

Learn the differentiation of headaches from a traditional Chinese medicine perspective. Identify excess and deficient headaches with specific symptomology, triggers and aggravations. Consider Acupuncture treatment principles and prescriptive Acupoint combinations.

Lastly, practice an Acupressure treatment specific for one type of headache, learning Acupressure techniques, Acupoint combinations and flow of form. Leave this workshop with a deeper understanding of headaches and how best to treat them in your clinical practice.
