Cupping

Presented by Susan Kohut & Guy Bailey


Date:    Saturday 20 July
Time:    8.30am – 4.30pm
Venue:  Physiotherapy Department, Rotorua Public Hospital, Rotorua

Cupping is a therapeutic technique used worldwide with a long history of use in countries such as Egypt, Greece and China.

Physiotherapists who have studied Chinese medicine techniques, such as acupuncture are taught it routinely – but this is something every physiotherapist can do for massage (from gentle relaxing to deep) and myofascial release. No longer do you need to apply painful (for you and the patient) myofascial techniques – think of the ITB.

We will present the latest evidence, teach the safe application, and have some practice on different body parts and using different types of therapeutic cups, so you can take this back to the clinic and as one participant stated of a previous course – I barely have to use my hands now and I get such great effects.

No pre-requisite to attending this course.

Non PAANZ members and non PNZ members are welcome.

PAANZ member rate $250.00
PNZ member rate $300.00
Non PNZ member rate $375.00*

Constitutional Facial Acupuncture is a safe, painless and effective treatment for renewing the face as well as the whole body. Fine lines may be entirely erased, deeper lines reduced and bags around neck and eyes firmed.

Fine needles are placed at a variety of acupuncture points on the face, neck and around the eyes to stimulate the body’s natural energies, or Qi. Since muscle groups are addressed as well the acupuncture points, the face lifts itself, via the acupuncture points, through the muscles’ toning and tightening action. The needles also stimulate blood and circulation, which improves facial colour.

Over the 3 days – we will cover the following topics:

  • Indications and contraindications when using constitutional facial acupuncture
  • Leviers facial technique
  • Facial landscape and musculature
  • Learn how to needle facial points and motor points on the neck
  • Learn specific command points on the body that influence the face
  • The 8 extra meridians and their effect on the body and facial landscape
  • Physiognomy
  • The kidney spiritual points

By the end of the course you will have confidence in facial needling and have a complete protocol for facial treatment.

Course Prerequisite:
Pre-requisite for this course is 80 hours of formal acupuncture training.
Non- members of PAANZ are welcome to attend courses, if they meet the pre-requisites and pay the extra fee.

Time: 9.00am to 4.00pm

Venue:  A.U.T, North Shore Campus, Auckland

The aim of this weekend is to attend both days, or either day, and practice those points that you want to refresh your knowledge of, and your skills needling them – Joints, scalp, kiwi points (we have extended them past the elbow). The weekend is your oyster! Basically any question, issue, explanation. Refresh what you used to know and expand on what you want more practice in!

The point finding can be on a meridian basis, or focused around joints/ conditions / areas

Safe needling of areas around the thorax, neck, joints and other points where one needs to take precautions will be covered.

A basic review of what is new in terms of precautions to acupuncture will also be covered.

Saturday is about needling anywhere above CV8 at the umbilicus – i.e. T10 dermatomal level and above up to GV20.Sunday will focus on all points south of CV8 at the umbilicus, i.e. T10 dermatomal level and below to K1 (needling that point is totally optional!).

Clinical reasoning of why you would use the points will also be discussed (including Energetic, Traditional Chinese, or Western acupuncture).

To attend this course, you must be able to demonstrate a minimum of 50 hours acupuncture education.

How to treat pain and inflammation with needles.

Presented by Susan Kohut

Date:     Saturday 19 October
Time:     8.30am – 4.30pm
Venue:   A.U.T, North Shore Campus, Auckland

We all use acupuncture in one way or another to enhance our treatments, whether treating an acute, chronic, or highly sensitised person with a musculoskeletal/nociceptive/neurogenic condition. But does one approach/the same recipe work for all people with neck pain?

Let’s expand on your acupuncture repertoire, and get you to think autonomic as well as the everyday local/segmental ‘stuff’ that we do.

Different types of needling will be practiced and applied to a variety of case studies.

Review of acute to extraordinary meridians will be discussed with a western spin, as will ears, scalps, and anti-inflammatory evidence-based acupuncture.

Pre-requisite for this course is 80 hours of formal acupuncture training.

Non-members of PAANZ are welcome to attend courses, if they meet the pre-requisites and pay the extra fee.

Advance Upper Body - Dry Needling

Saturday 8.30am – 5.00pm & Sunday 8.30am – 3.00pm

Venue:  A.U.T, North Shore Campus, Auckland

The Advanced Dry Needling course for the Upper Half of the Body aims to teach course participants how to needle myofascial components from T7 upward. This is a very practical course, including the teaching of advanced techniques around the scapulothoracic region, shoulder, upper limbs and neck 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) upper 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.
