Dry Needling Foundation – May – Christchurch

PRESENTED BY

Trevor Montgomery

Date:
Saturday 18 May 8.00am - 5.00pm Sunday 19 May 2024 8.00am - 3.30pm
Venue:
Christchurch Burwood Hospital - Course is held in Physical Medicine Building , Burwood Hospital, Mairehau Road, Entrance 3. Parking is available on the road.
Price:
$600 - PAANZ member rate
$700 - PNZ member rate
$850 - non-PNZ member rate

This foundation course taught by Trevor Montgomery, in association with PAANZ, is suitable for all physiotherapists wishing to expand their clinical reasoning and treatment skill sets with the use of dry needling. The course has a large practical component with particular emphasis on safe needling practice as set out in the latest PAANZ safety guidelines.

The course is an introduction to Dry Needling, learning to needle major muscle groups in all areas of the body but focused looking at conditions such as Achilles Tendonosis, Shoulder Impingement and SIJ dysfunctions. As we look at each of these conditions we teach you how to needle trigger points in the muscles that may be dysfunctional in those conditions and then look at how to rehab the conditions using exercises/stretches that Trevor has developed. The Foundation Course teaches you to needle most major muscle groups in the body safely and plenty to take back and use with patients on Monday morning! However we do not needle over the thorax in the Foundation Course because of the risk of pneumothorax. Needling muscles over the thorax is considered more advanced and therefore is included in the Advanced Upper Limb Course.

The course is designed to help practitioners integrate dry needling into their clinical approach with a view to addressing the underlying causes of some of the more common clinical presentations we treat. Having taught over 200 introductory and advanced courses for AUT, PAANZ, the APA of Australia and Asia over the last 9 years. Trevor brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his teaching in this specialty area.

No pre-requisite to attending this course.

Non PAANZ members and non PNZ members are welcome.

Zang Fu Course

PRESENTED BY

Rielle Friedrich and Guy Bailey

Date:
Saturday 15 June 2024
Venue:
Therapies Outpatients, Wellington Hospital, Newtown, Wellington
Price:
$300 - PAANZ member rate
$350 - PNZ member rate
$425 - non-PNZ member rate

This Course aims to explore and expand on the participants knowledge and understanding of Zang Fu.

Zang Fu involves the concepts that are absolutely fundamental to the practice of Traditional Acupuncture. This ancient model still has modern day clinical relevance in providing a framework for both diagnosis and treatment prescription that is both elegant and effective.

Zang Fu may be described as the organ system in the terms of functional inter-relationship. All the channels connect to the Zang Fu; they are involved with the interchange between body and environment. Zang Fu diagnostic is useful to assess the underlying imbalance of a dysfunction or pathology.

By gaining a deeper understanding of the concepts of Zang Fu course participants will clarify their understanding of the functions of the acupuncture points. The use of Zang Fu acupuncture really helps bring alive ones practice, promoting lasting change for your patients.

A short Qi Gong component will be part off the day. Come along to the course! We’re planning for it to be fun!


NB: This course would be too challenging to practitioners trained in dry needling only. It should only be open to practitioners trained in acupuncture to a level permitting PAANZ registration.

To attend this course you should have 80 hours of needling training with at least 40 hours being outside of Dry Needling. If you are unsure whether you meet the minimum requirements, please contact the PAANZ administrator PAANZ@physiotherapy.org.nz

*Please Note: All attendees must be registered in New Zealand and have a current APC.

In traditional acupuncture these are used in complicated conditions, chronic cases characterized by multiple issues, confusing patterns and complex cases that sometimes show disparate symptom patterns.

This is a very practical course. Participants will spend time learning about the zones of influence of the 8 Extraordinay meridians and the clinical application of these. Accurate location by palpation of the points opening the Extra Ordinary Meridians will be covered in depth. We not only will cover how to treat with acupuncture, but as well with an effective thread Moxa technique called okyu (which produces minimal smoke).
