    Battlefield Acupuncture by John Howard LAc

    BATTLEFIELD ACUPUNCTURE (BA), one of the strongest protocols for pain reduction, is faster than most Western medicine protocols in reducing pain in minutes. The BA protocol was created by Dr. Richard Niemtzow and based on the work of Dr. Paul Nogier. The teaching materials in this course were derived from meetings and clinical observations between Dr. Niemtzow and your instructor, John Howard, L.Ac., Dipl. Ac. 

    Basic and Advanced Battlefield Acupuncture are covered in this seminar. Advanced BA builds on the Basic protocol. You will learn the history of BA, when to use it, and the outcome you should expect. There is time for discussion, Q&A and case review. You will learn how to integrate BA protocols into your practice. During the afternoon clinical portion the technique will be demonstrated on volunteers who are experiencing pain.

    These techniques have been tested and used over the past 10 years. Learn to treat many conditions and use fewer needles with phenomenal results! 

    Earn 15 NCCAOM PDA hours for this class along with an in-depth understanding of this amazing protocol. Come see and learn why NATO forces are using battlefield acupuncture.
