What we do

Acupuncturists today have one of the most powerful tools in the treatment of pain, and it is not the needle. 

Acupuncture Pain Science Education was developed to Guide Acupuncturists in understanding the principles of modern Pain Science and Neuroplasticity in order to assimilate them into their practice in a way that makes sense and improves results.

To advance the Profession and improve Individual Practitioners' treatment of Pain we need to understand Pain. It is our hypothesis that the best way to understand something like pain in a tangible and applicable way is to identify the common principles between Modern Pain Science and Acupuncture.

There are thousands lineages of Chinese Medicine that students and practitioners can choose to learn from in order to develop the practice. Acupuncture Pain Science Education serves to fulfill the other half of this through in-person seminars, an online curriculum and other resources on pain science.

The biology of pain is never really straightforward, even when it appears to be.
