Treatment of Pelvic Floor Disorders with Acupuncture
**This seminar is sold out. To be put on the cancellation list, email email@example.com.
Pelvic floor disorders are crippling to many patients, stressing marriages and relationships, affecting sexual and urogenital function, and significantly reducing the quality of the patient’s life. Pelvic Floor dysfunctions encompass a number of recalcitrant, difficult to treat and debilitating painful and neurological conditions for which there are few options for treatment in the current, mainstream medical system. While Acupuncture is one of the few treatments out there that can truly help resolve pelvic floor pain and dysfunction, there are very few acupuncturists that specialize in pelvic floor disorders. Jamie Hampton, L.Ac. who specializes in Pelvic Floor Disorders, hopes to change that by offering this seminar.
In this introductory seminar, you will receive extensive training on treating pelvic floor dysfunction, including needling skills, common disorders of men and women, treatment strategies, and hands-on practice.
