Treatment of Pelvic Floor Disorders with Acupuncture

This is the intro class that is a pre-requisite to the Advanced Pelvic Floor Acupuncture seminar

Learn unique skills to help a patient population with few options

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. 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. 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 treating pelvic floor disorders. Dr. Jamie Hampton, DAOM, L.Ac. is changing that by offering this seminar. Dr. Hampton has specialized in treating pelvic floor for nearly 15 years and draws on her experience to give you a dynamic, clinically focused class.

In this introductory seminar, you will receive extensive training on treating pelvic floor dysfunction including informed consent, patient interaction and treatment room etiquette, needling skills, common disorders of men and women, treatment strategies, and hands-on practice.

About Jamie Hampton, L.Ac.:

Dr. Jamie Hampton is a doctoral graduate of The American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the oldest TCM school in the US. She has worked in leading San Francisco Bay Area hospitals for the last 18 years with an emphasis on true integration and collaboration within fast paced clinical settings including the ICU. While she was an adjunct professor through University of California, San Francisco she also had the privilege of teaching grand rounds to medical students. This experience blossomed into a faculty position at the Acupuncture and Integrative Medical College in Berkeley, CA where she taught advanced needling technique, gynecology and advanced formula writing. This solidified her love of teaching and connecting with her students, conveying the power of TCM and all its abilities. She was also co-founder of Golden Leaf Acupuncture in Berkeley, CA which was University California Berkeley’s leading provider for students as well as faculty and staff. Having discovered a total lack of treatment options for pelvic floor pain (including acupuncture) Dr. Hampton made it her mission to specialize in helping these patients. She has treated pelvic floor patients since 2009.

Currently Jamie practices in San Francisco, CA  specializing in pelvic floor dysfunction and complex orthopedic cases.
