Jin Shang: Effective Therapy at the Sinew Level    

Dr. Liu has refined the TCM concept of Jin Shang (“sinew injury”), and incorporated acupuncture with taping and other techniques generally used in western therapy. This integration of acupuncture with sports medicine produces remarkable clinical results. Addressing pain and injury through sinew-level channels provides TCM practitioners with a new and useful approach to acute and chronic musculoskeletal problems. Pattern differentiation and treatment using Jin Shang techniques will be thoroughly discussed. Dr. Liu will explain the theory and mechanics of sinew-level meridians (jing-luo), explain functional channel movement assessment, and demonstrate his technique for combining needling with taping. This seminar provides discussion, demonstration, and hands-on practice, validating Dr. Liu’s approach with real patient cases.

Practitioners taking this course will:

    1. Understand the theory of Sinew jing-luo in acupuncture
    2. Learn to differentiate applications and principles of Jin Shang treatment
    3. Obtain skills in treating Jin Shang issues with acupuncture and taping
    4. Learn to prevent and rehabilitate sports injuries with Jin Shang techniques
