Scar treatments are more than just surrounding the dragon. There are specific negative physiological affects scars have on the local tissue as well as on the function of structures away from the scars. Treatments have a specific purpose and when treated, can produce amazing results. However, scars are not the miracle treatment that should just be done without any clinical reason. This webinar covers the physiological effects scars have on the body, the purpose and effects electro-acupuncture has on scars, and how to incorporate scar treatments, and how to objectively see if the treatments are having a positive effect.
This webinar includes lecture and demo.
