**If you sign up for the bundle, you’ll have immediate access to the online course with hours of in-depth education to use immediately with yourself and your clients. The online course with Dr. Nelson explains the biology of the 5 primary systems used in eastern medicine and how we can use the signs and symptoms of biometric data to evaluate and intervene using both functional medicine and traditional Chinese medicine approaches to optimize health and fitness of clients. These interventions include herbs, diet, lifestyle, and DIY options like Moxa, which is what will be covered during the live event to help you learn more about its implementation.
Field Techniques for Enhancing Movement (Jan. 11-12th):
Learn simple tricks from Eastern Medicine to quickly and repeatedly hack the body’s communication system, delivering instant enhancements to a humans’ ability to move on the training floor & in the real world. These are not “treatments” and are well within a trainer’s scope of practice to aid their clients in moving better within their training sessions.
These techniques often involve pressure points that stimulate the nervous system for the desired effect. They are simple, safe, and highly effective for improving short-term function and range of motion that can allow your clients to train until the underlying cause of whatever dysfunction they are experiencing is addressed.
Biometrics & Moxa (Jan. 13-14th):
Unlike acupuncture, Moxa is a non-invasive technique that utilizes points on the body from Eastern Medicine which can help improve everything from blood flow to digestion and other biological functions. We will go over what different points can do, how to find them, the correct methods of applying Moxa, and when you might use this for yourself or clients to improve recovery, sleep, digestion, and more.
What is Moxa?
Moxa or moxabustion is a traditional Chinese medicine method that involves burning an herb (artemisia vulgaris) over acupuncture points to promote healing. The heat penetrates the skin surface to stimulate the point on the body. Depending on the point used, results can be immediate or cumulative over several treatments. Reference Studies Below
