Overview:

This online course explains Fascial Energy Acupuncture and helps build a foundation to allow physiotherapists to understand various acupuncture techniques. 

It incorporates Traditional Chinese Medicine Theory and is enriched with a modern understanding of what acupuncture and meridians are. 

The goal of Fascial Energy Acupuncture is to provide immediate pain relief. Enoch Ho discusses how  most patients see significant changes in their pain after the use of this technique.  

The content of the course is not introductory and assumes you have some background knowledge of Acupuncture and Meridians. This is not a practical class to demonstrate how to insert needles safely to the suggested acupuncture points.

If you would like to learn or review the basics of Fascia-Energy Acupuncture, Enoch Ho has a course available on Embodia called ‘Fascia-Energy Acupuncture Technique’ which can be found here.

 

What is Fascial Energy Acupuncture Technique?

Fascial Energy Acupuncture Technique (FEAT) is a combination of:

  • Fascia –  Meridian Theory
  • Energy – TCM Ying-Yang theory
  • Acupuncture technique – Acupuncture points selection and manipulation technique

The course explains the similarities and differences between Meridian and Fascia as well as the etiology, incidence, pathology and clinical presentation of a rotator cuff tear. The practical component explains what physiotherapists might see during observation, palpation and active/passive movements of the shoulder. It explains what acupuncture points to cover for the shoulder based on Fascia Energy Theory and TCM theory.

In addition, the wrist and hand condition De Quervain’s Syndrome is explained including:

  • Anatomy
  • Epidemiology
  • Etiology
  • Other associated diseases

It also discusses patient  subjective and objective assessment findings, clinical signs and symptoms and AROM/PROM findings.

 

Case Studies

Three case studies are incorporated throughout the course to apply knowledge to a patient case and gain a better understanding.

  • Case study one: A high school student with left anterior shoulder pain and weakness
  • Case study two: A woman with complaints of pain in her right lateral wrist that radiates down to the right thumb
  • Case study three: A healthcare provider with tingling and numbness in fingers and hand

The case studies discuss patient subjective and objective assessments, acupuncture points for treatment, anatomy and the method of applying the acupuncture needle including direction and depth of needle. 

 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Gain an understanding of Fascial Energy Acupuncture Technique (FEAT)
  • Learn the etiology, incidence, pathology and clinical presentation of a rotator cuff tear and De Quervain’s Syndrome
  • Gain a practical understanding on how to apply FEAT to patient cases
