    My name is Dave Shipsey and I am the author of the first book in English on Abdominal Acupuncture. My book called “Mastering the Art of Abdominal Acupuncture, a concise guide to treating numerous painful conditions” has received great peer reviews and has been sold throughout the world since publication in 2015. I have been teaching abdominal acupuncture around the world since 2011. Over a period of many years of teaching Abdominal Acupuncture the course has evolved and continues to evolve so that your learning experience is optimum for you. I am excited to be coming to Antwerp.

    Become a confident and congruent Master of Abdominal Acupuncture, go from “zero to hero” with this specially designed abdominal courses which will be run over a total of 4 days. The introductory course, and the advanced course (the introductory course is a pre-requisite requirement for the advanced course).

    Abdominal Acupuncture (Fu Zhen) is the one of the greatest (in my humble and possibly biased opinion) new modalities in acupuncture. It is also known as “Miracle therapy” because the results are (often) so much better than traditional acupuncture. It is particularly good for fertility issues, chronic, stubborn and painful conditions and a variety of internal Zang Fu conditions. Therapeutic effects are often, rapid (within minutes) and long lasting. Treatments with abdominal acupuncture are very gentle with minimal needle sensation and maximum therapeutic affect, most clients prefer abdominal acupuncture for these reasons. As a system it is easy to learn and to incorporate into your practice, once a number of abdominal nuances are understood.

    The course material will be delivered in a step by step manner, to ensure that you will build on the foundations of the theory and the practical applications of Abdominal Acupuncture. Since approximately 40-50% of the course is practical, you will gain the confidence and experience to use abdominal to treat your clients, upon completion.

    You will learn all aspects of the subtleties of Abdominal Acupuncture, including how to palpate the abdomen to diagnose and to isolate ahshi points. You will learn all the nuances of this beautiful, gentle yet very powerful system of acupuncture. You will learn how to incorporate your abdominal skills with other systems so that you will be able to treat all kinds of muscular skeletal problems including fibromyalgia (and other Bi syndromes). Internal Zang Fu conditions, including, Asthma, allergies and respiratory problems, digestive conditions including Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn’s Disease will be covered. Male and female fertility, Menopause and women’s health will be discussed also as will Insomnia and emotional difficulties such as Anxiety and depression. Other topics will be covered including Neuropathy and generally how to maximise your results with Abdominal Acupuncture.

    You will also learn Navel acupuncture which is a micro system that works wonderfully on its own and in combination with Abdominal Acupuncture. Over the course of the 4 or 5 days we will build on your abdominal skills and on how to incorporate it best with other systems of acupuncture.

    Much of the course will be practical so that you can refine your skills and speed up your implementation of abdominal acupuncture. Both course syllabus are very comprehensive and can be run in a very organic way tailored to what you require to help you become the most competent and confident Abdominal Acupuncturist you can be.
