This lecture will demystify the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture point selection as it pertains to neck and back pain. Attendees will be introduced to the thought process behind point selection. This will enable them to devise their own acupuncture protocols for their patients, thus freeing them from the "cookbook" method of TCM that often fails in the face of chronic neck and back pain. Attendees will learn to individualize
acupuncture treatments and obtain a greater level of success with this healing modality.
