Spinal blocks represent themselves at the auricle. This auricle representation can easily be detected and manually corrected. In auricular mobilization the neck and back themselves need not to be manipulated which is a big advantage compared to manual therapy and chiropractic and makes it a safe procedure. At this seminar you learn to apply a practical, often very effective tool which can be applied stand alone or in combination with other therapies such as TCM, herbal medicine, traditional acupuncture, homeopathy and so on.

Upper limbs Musculoskeletal Pain – AcuOsteo method – physiopathology and treatment by Acupuncture and Osteopathy

Musculoskeletal pain is one of the most frequent reasons for consultation in my own clinic.
In my experience, Acupuncture and Osteopathic medicine are two effective techniques and they are synergistic in treating pain.
Often pain is generically reported to a widespread area of a joint, together with some rigidity and it can be difficult to identify the Acupuncture Channel involved in a musculoskeletal pain.
Osteopathic manipulative treatment’s aim is to bring back joints in their physiological position, reduce pain and limitation of the movement, and help to identify the channel that needs to be treated with Acupuncture.
