Course Description: This class covers the Basic Battlefield Acupuncture protocol on Saturday and Advanced Battlefield Acupuncture and Clinical Pearls on Sunday. Both days are didactic in the morning and there are clinical demonstrations* in the afternoons. You will learn the histories of Basic and Advanced Battlefield Acupuncture, when to use them, and the outcomes you should expect. There are several Clinical Pearls to incorporate into your practice. There is time for discussion, Q&A and case review. You will also learn how to integrate Battlefield Acupuncture into your practice immediately

A crucial part of the experience is that students learn the protocol hands on, so by time they return to their clinics on the Monday (after class), they are proficient in the technique. Generally, they are excited to start using the protocol right away. They can use it immediately to treat their toughest pain patients.

*Vital to the clinical demonstrations is having volunteers with pain that are treated for free. They are treated by the students under the guidance of the instructor. The more volunteers we have, the better the learning experience for the students.
