Sept 22, Hamilton,
ON – The Contemporary Medical Acupuncture
Course at McMaster
University has just
announced a new specialty course called  Integrative Health Strategies and
Contemporary Acupuncture for Stress and Women’s Health Problems.

The course will be held on November
26-27, 2011 at the McMaster University campus.


It is perhaps easy to see how stress
is associated with common psychological and emotional conditions such as
anxiety, depression, insomnia, and fatigue.  Chronic and cumulative stress
is often associated with many other health conditions including cardiovascular,
respiratory, gastrointestinal problems, as
well as hormone dysfunctions. However, more important than the amount of stress
is one’s reaction to it, and that reaction is influenced by many factors – and
it is modifiable by knowledge and coping skills that you can learn and teach to
your patient.  

The utilization of Contemporary
Medical Acupuncture, acupressure, and mind body relaxation techniques (such as
visualization, breathing exercises, yoga movements) has been proven very useful
in decreasing the patient’s stress reaction and in the prevention of disease.

In this two-day workshop you will
experience a balanced combination of informational and engaging presentations,
needling workshops, live case presentations, and mind-body techniques. This
learning will provide you with practical blueprint strategies and precise tools
to deal with stress related conditions and women’s stress-related
dysfunction.  It is also an opportunity for you to know how to manage your
own stress, stay healthy and balanced, and enjoy well-being in day-to-day
