One of the questions that practitioners encounter most frequently is “how does acupuncture work?” Acupuncture - the application of a filiform needle (“dry needling”) – has a profound tissue response and neurological effect. The resultant response and health benefits are vast and varied, according to technique employed, retention time, location, and combinations of needles that are used.

In this course, join Dr. David Karaba for a deep discussion of both the scientific and “energetic” phenomenology that reveals the greater understanding of how acupuncture works. Dr. Karaba details the neurological responses, vascular responses, and various other effects of acupuncture, as well as how acupuncture influences the neurological, endocrine, and immune systems, and how acupuncture and acupressure can influence the psycho-social system and other refined perceptions.

Having a deeper understanding enables the practitioner to better diagnose and treat patients, utilizing the various needling techniques that are fundamental to the practice of acupuncture. In addition, this course allows greater communication to patients, allied healthcare providers, and the general public regarding how acupuncture works, helping to promote greater acceptance, understanding, and treatment outcomes.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Gain deeper understanding of the physiological aspects of acupuncture.
  • Gain more thorough understanding of the traditional viewpoints of how acupuncture works and how they relate today.
  • Gain more thorough understanding of the various treatment methods of acupuncture and when and how to employ them for optimum patient outcomes.
  • Be able to communicate more succinctly to patients, healthcare practitioners, and the public regarding the mechanisms of acupuncture and how it improves health.
  • Recognize the proper uses of electroacupuncture and how to use it effectively.
