Myofascial Cupping

Presented by Susan Kohut & Guy Bailey

Date:      Saturday 10 March 2018
Time:      8.30am – 4.30pm

Venue:   AUT, North Shore Campus, Northcote, Auckland

Myofascial 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.

Qi Gong

Presented by Gabrielle Friedrich

Date:        Saturday 7 April 2018
Time:       9.00am to 5.00pm

Venue:     143 Rahu Road, RD 4 Paeroa/Mackeytown

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.

Introductory Facial course

Presented by Joanne Cruz

Date:       13 April - 15 April 2018
Time:       8.30am – 4.30pm
each day
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.

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.

Venue:     Wellington Hospital, Therapies Outpatients, Newtown, Wellington
 

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 providers 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.

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.
