Many acupuncture practitioners also have some type of background or training in various styles of massage and bodywork. Touch is one of the most powerful tools at our disposal and can improve treatment outcomes immeasurably, still, we are not often sure how to integrate bodywork protocols into acupuncture treatments. In this class, Honora Wolfe will discuss and demonstrate a number of specific techniques and how to put them together to increase your effectiveness as a clinician.
About Your Instructor:
Honora Wolfe began her studies in alternative health in 1975, becoming a founder and the first director of the Boulder College of Massage Therapy, where she worked full time until the end of 1980. Her son was born in 1981 and she took a break of several years to be a full time "Mom." It was during these stay-at-home years that Honora worked with Bob Flaws to found Blue Poppy Press, the first publication of which came out in 1982.
In 1988, after three trips to China to study tuina medical massage at the Shanghai College of TCM and the completion of her acupuncture training and clinical apprenticeships, Honora passed the NCCAOM exam and began her private clinical practice, which continued until 2001. By then however, Blue Poppy had grown considerably, adding new divisions and product lines as well as several employees. At that point, Bob and Honora decided to focus their energies on translating and publishing medical texts and research from Chinese source materials as well as teaching at seminars and conferences all over the US and Europe.
In addition to her focus of teaching courses on adjunctive therapies such as tuina protocols, bleeding techniques, and moxibustion, in 2003 Honora began a side specialty in practice management and success courses. She continues to write, lecture, and consult on subjects related to the business of acupuncture.
