About The Workshop

Course Description

OM-PM is an integrative system of medicine combining the best of classical Oriental Medicine and Western Medical Science to arrive at an integrated method of treatment. OM-PM is directed at an integrated method of treatment for regulating abnormalities in the physical condition. This is based on an assessment of the imbalances and anomalies in various channels systems using diagnostic methods (The Four Examinations) unique to OM and assessment methods (Orthopedic and neurological exams, manual muscle testing, and motion palpation) unique to “Physical Medicine”. PM findings are then reframed into the OM paradigm in order to broaden diagnosis and treatment options.

In this course:

  1. Participants will be able to define myofascial pain and make appropriate Oriental Medicine diagnosis.
  2. Participants will learn 14 treatment methods to address myofascial pain, including needling technique, bodywork, and dietary considerations.
  3. Participants will learn how to apply methods to the dorsal, ventral, and lateral aspects of the body.
