The TCM meridian channel system and stem cells are closely linked through a systematize network composed of electromagnetically sensitive cells. This network is created before birth during embryogenesis and has the potential of influencing the body, such as the spinal cord, throughout life. In essence, acupuncture has an effect to promote healing by stimulating the body’s own stem cells into action. Research also shows that autologous stem cell mobilization that occurs with proper acupuncture point selection and needling may be one of the key mechanisms behind a patient’s recovery from acute and chronic pain.

In this course, participants will go beyond the current ideas of Qi and Blood stagnation and learn how to use Structural Alignment Acupuncture (SAA) to mobilize stem cells that promote permanent healing in pain patients who have arthritis, degenerative disk disease, lumbago, and acute injuries. Regan Archibald, a seasoned acupuncturist, will help participants understand the research behind the pain relieving benefits of acupuncture and its correlation with stem cells.

Topics covered include:

  • Why stem cell therapy
  • What are stem cells
  • Stem cell research
  • Stem cells roles throughout the body
  • Acupuncture's impact on stem cells
  • Radiation and chemotherapy impact on stem cells
  • Treating and examining orthopedic conditions
  • Treating spinal issues with acupuncture and stem cells
  • Structural alignment acupuncture
