Advance Lower Body - Dry Needling course

Presented by Trevor Montgomery

Date:        2 & 3 March 2019
Time:       Saturday 8.30am – 5.00pm & Sunday 8.30am to 3.00pm
Venue:     1/298 Ellerslie-Panmure Highway, Mt Wellington, Auckland 1060

The Advanced Dry Needling course for the Lower Half of the Body aims to teach course participants how to needle myofascial components from T7 down. This is a very practical course, including the teaching of advanced techniques around the thoracolumbar region, pelvis and lower limbs with particular emphasis on safety and efficacy. One of the major goals is for participants to integrate the use of dry needling into their clinical reasoning process and their clinical approach to treat common (and not so common) lower body conditions. 

Case studies will be discussed to further enhance the clinical reasoning behind the use of dry needling, and its integration with other physiotherapy skill sets, such as manual therapy, muscle balancing, exercise prescription and postural advice.

Course Prerequisite:

Attendance requires completion of one of the following courses: PAANZ Foundation Dry Needling Course, APA Introductory Segmental and Dry Needling Course, Post-Graduate Western Acupuncture qualification from AUT or Otago. If you have undertaken dry needling training from another provider please contact the PAANZ administrator to see if it qualifies as a pre-requisite for the Advanced Course.

Qi Gong

Presented by Gabriel Friedrich

Date:        16 March 2019
Time:       Saturday 9.00am to 5.00pm
Venue:     Vaughan Park, 1043 Beach Road, Long Bay, Auckland

Qi Gong is a form of therapeutic exercise and meditation within the system of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  The history of Qi Gong goes back to ancient China over 4000 years ago.  There are many different styles that have developed over the centuries, with the aim to promote health and cultivate spiritual balance.

Qi Gong translated; “working with Qi – the vital energy” is a slow internal and external practice where the breath, movement, posture and concentration/mind are coordinated to build up, enhance and store the Qi.  Qi Gong adjusts the flow of Qi in the Acupuncture channels and follows the ancient TCM principle to “prevent disease before they happen”.

Regular practice is an effective way to help improve many illnesses, like Arthritis, back – and joint pain, chronic fatigue, nervous system disorders, stress, respiratory dysfunction, stagnation of energy and many more.

The course is designed for you to learn to self-regulate as a practitioner, to relax and to improve your own vitality and health, and you will learn a simple Qi Gong sequence useful for patients with common conditions.

No pre-requisite to attending this course.

Non PAANZ members and non PNZ members are welcome.

Shonishin

Presented by Dr Ted Pearson

Date:        Sunday 5 May
Time:       Saturday 8.30am to 4.30pm
Venue:     Burwood Hospital, Physio Department, Christchurch

Shonishin is a school of Paediatric Acupuncture that first evolved in the Osaka region of Japan in the 18th century.

The energetic and developmental physiology of children is distinct from adults and therefore their treatment must take this into account.

Shonishin has developed a simple, non-invasive but profound treatment protocol and techniques that can be used from birth through to adulthood.

The basic non-pattern treatment can be readily modified for various paediatric presentations and include pattern-based treatments from the Meridian Therapy school.

What you will learn in this Introductory Workshop;

·         An outline of the energetic physiology of children,

·         Demonstration of a range of specialized Shonishin tools,

·         An introduction to, and the practice of the basic non-invasive protocol and

          treatment techniques [wear loose clothing],

·         Treatment suggestions for some common paediatric presentations.

Teacher - Dr Ted Pearson is a Toyohari Academic practitioner and senior teacher with the Australasian Board of Toyohari Assn. He has practiced acupuncture for over 30 years maintaining a busy practice in Christchurch. He trained in Japanese acupuncture and Shonishin [non-invasive paediatric acupuncture] in Japan, Europe and Australia and continues to teach Shonishin and Toyohari internationally.

Open to all PAANZ members, some acupuncture background useful but not essential to learn and utilize the basic treatment protocols.
