The Balance Technique utilizes the power of distal points in treating pain anywhere in the body. By choosing acupuncture points away from the injured area, you promote for faster recovery! Now that you’ve decreased the pain significantly, you can instruct the patient to perform range of motion and strengthening exercises with greater tolerance and compliance. This also allows you to work locally while the needles are working their magic distally. Perform joint mobilization/manipulation, myofascial techniques and any modality locally while the needles are still inserted.
