Motion acupuncture in Toronto, Canada 2023

【New York News】 From September 9th to 11th, 2023, a 3-day hands-on training class for motion acupuncture in Toronto successfully concluded on September 11th. This course was spontaneously organized by Dr. Chen Decheng’s motion acupuncture students, who invited Dr. Chen to provide specific guidance on clinical practice of motion acupuncture. Participants in this course mainly came from Toronto, as well as other Canadian cities such as Edmonton and Montreal, with a total of over 60 people attending the training.

This course on the first day introduced the essentials of motion acupuncture, including the main content of fundamental knowledge in acupuncture, which is essential for clinical acupuncture practice. Dr. Chen Decheng explained, and other teachers analyzed and demonstrated content not typically covered in textbooks. The emphasis was on explaining the five major aspects of motion acupuncture:

Motion Acupuncture Points: How to accurately locate acupuncture treatment points?

Motion Acupuncture Needle: Patent design, special structure.

Motion Acupuncture Techniques: Basic needle techniques, auxiliary needle techniques, special needle techniques.

Motion Acupuncture State: Needle movement, dynamic needle retention.

Motion Acupuncture Principles: The secret of soft tissue release, the mechanism of dynamic acupuncture needle action.

Video explanations and demonstrations of the treatment effects for various conditions such as TMJ, headaches, cervical spondylosis, adhesive capsulitis, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, lumbar disc herniation, sciatica, knee joint pain, heel pain, and plantar fasciitis.

Live interaction with students, operational demonstrations, and Q&A sessions. Below are scenes of the teacher’s on-site treatment:

The second and third days were primarily guided by Dr. Chen Decheng, with students practicing motion acupuncture on each other to treat various conditions. Dr. Chen provided earnest guidance, covering the process from selecting motion acupuncture points (three steps in one procedure) to determining the needle insertion point, including the direction, angle, and depth of needle insertion. Techniques for needle retention and lifting were also emphasized, offering true face-to-face communication and hands-on guidance. Dr. Chen shared a wealth of knowledge and techniques that are not typically learned, and practical experience demonstrated that students, using motion acupuncture, could achieve results similar to those of the teacher. Students gained a lot, further clarifying the technical essentials of clinical operations with motion acupuncture, building upon the foundation of online courses.

On-site, there were students with adhesive capsulitis, experiencing limited shoulder movement. Before the treatment, the outward extension of the arms could only reach 90 degrees for two students. Under Dr. Chen’s guidance, using motion acupuncture, after just a few minutes of treatment, they immediately achieved an outward extension of 180 degrees (see image). The students expressed their enthusiasm with a warm round of applause.

Additionally, there were students who had been experiencing chronic lower back pain, unable to bend down, and knee joint pain, making it difficult to squat for many years. During the hands-on training class, under Dr. Chen’s guidance, the students resolved these issues through mutual practice (see image). The scene was filled with continuous cheers and applause.

On the second and third days, students mainly practiced on each other, covering various body parts from head to toe—neck, shoulders, back, and legs. Significant improvements were achieved, and the results were highly satisfactory. The contrast in the before-and-after effects of motion acupuncture treatment for various pains and functional impairments after just one session was evident:

Students generally expressed that on this day of learning, they not only acquired the technical essentials of motion acupuncture but, more importantly, broadened their approach to motion acupuncture treatment. Everyone deeply felt that motion acupuncture therapy, distinct from traditional acupuncture, represents a qualitative leap in diagnostic and treatment approaches. The atmosphere throughout the day was enthusiastic, and students gained a lot. They not only learned needling techniques but also addressed their own ailments. Gratitude was extended to Dr. Chen for sharing his valuable knowledge and skills!
