What Will I Learn?

During this hands-on seminar in Acu-Current Therapy, you will learn to loosen tightness/adhesion between the fascia and muscles, tendons and ligaments. This opens the acupuncture channels, releases restrictions in joint motion, changes posture imbalances and relieves pain.


You will learn the 5 components of Acu-Current Therapy:

  • How to locate new acupuncture points in the muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments
  • Use of the Dolphin Neurostim microcurrent device
  • Myofascial acupressure stretches
  • Positioning of patient for stretch
  • Homecare instruction

You will also learn:

  • The joint and range of motions associated with each Acu-Current point
  • The Flexibility Test – the palpation technique for assessment of muscle and joint restriction
  • The posture imbalances for each part of the body and how to correct them

Blended Learning

This seminar features a new state of the art learning method – blended learning. This combines online study with live practical training. Students study the material on the website prior to the in-person class. This gives students an opportunity to engage in more hands-on practice and instruction directly with Dr. Finkelstein. The in-person training is primarily practical – practice sessions with review Q & A. To ensure the quality of the seminar, we ask that all students study the online seminar prior to the in-person seminar.
