8:00 pm EST, 7:00 pm CST, 5:00 pm PST


A practical overview of several commonly applied segmental acupuncture methodologies and the segmental anatomy that unifies them. This course will deepen your understanding of how acupuncture works, regardless of preferred acupuncture style.


This hour-long webinar will review the anatomy and embryological development of the somatic and autonomic nervous systems. Therapeutic applications for both internal medicine and pain management will be discussed. Segmental acupuncture approaches for mesodermal derivatives – dermatomal, myotomal and sclerotomal and autonomic regulation for chronic pain conditions and internal medicine conditions will be covered.

Learning objectives

At the conclusion of this LIVE webcast physician participants will be able to:

  • Distinguish which derivatives of layers of the embryonic trilaminar disc are being stimulated by acupuncture techniques the participant is already familiar with.
  • Recognize which derivatives of layers of the embryonic trilaminar disc might be most effective for specific cases.
  • Design a patient specific segmental acupuncture protocol based on principles of segmental neuromodulation rather than a specific technique.
