Introductory Facial course

Presented by Joanne Cruz

Time:       8.30am – 4.30pm

Venue:     Wellington Hospital, Therapies Outpatients, Newtown, Wellington
 

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.

This two-day course adopts an interactive approach to learning, combining theory, practical demonstration and discussion, which students are actively encouraged to contribute to. The research evidence base and clinical experience are entwined to ensure delegates can confidently integrate acupuncture for woman’s health conditions into everyday practice.

I am a leading provider of acupuncture training in the U.K., with an international reputation as a specialist in postgraduate acupuncture education.

Day 1 will focus upon four common women’s health related ailments:

·         pregnancy related pelvic girdle pain,
·         over active bladder,
·         hot flushes
·         nausea and vomiting.

For each condition, every delegate will explore various needling approaches, the theoretical underpinning behind an acupuncture rationale, and when it is most appropriate to introduce it into a care package.

Day 2 will provide training in Korean Hand Acupuncture and Auricular Acupuncture, which can be applied to a range of health-related conditions. These needling methods allow the clinician to needle a broader scope of symptoms and conditions  and provides opportunities to deliver unique interventions which can expand the eligibility and accessibility of acupuncture to more diverse patient groups.
