An Introduction To Japanese Style Prickling Neuro Stimulation Therapy

Course Overview

Prickling Neuro Stimulation is a relatively new form of needle-less acupuncture developed by Dr. Hiroshi Nagata, a neurosurgeon in Japan. PNST is still a unknown entity in the field of acupuncture. It is used mainly for treating a variety of pain related conditions. But its role in non-pain conditions is also known. PNST is an easy to incorporate technique. It does not require the practitioner to insert needles. It applies a quick prickling stimulation to the skin surface with a pointed tool. The acupuncturist does not need a complicated diagnosis before starting treatment. It is simple to learn, fast, effective and pain free form of treatment. It can be incorporated alongside classical acupuncture treatment if need be. This webinar explains all the theories associated with PNST including both the western and eastern explanations for the same. Some of the western explanations include stimulation of the peripheral nerves with the PNST probe, dermatomal activation of the nerves to affect specific pain areas on the body, balancing of the autonomic nervous system, etc. Eastern explanations include mechanisms like mind body integration, encourages body to regain natural healing power, etc. Basic PNST protocol along with the point locations are explained in a very simplified manner using visual presentations. PNST for treating individual pain conditions is outlined in a lucid step by step manner.
