We started saturday with learning some more meridians including the Gallbladder, Kidney, Heart, and Governor Vessel. We also had our needling competency exam and written contraindications / precaution exams, which thankfully I passed and now hold my temporary needling certificate. This means I can start treating patients safely unsupervised.
Over the next 6 weeks I have to complete 2 case study assignments. I will need to explain my patients clinical diagnosis and reflect upon the treatments I will conduct using acupuncture. The case studies will be around 2500 words each. I will then complete my final training weekend in July and have a 2500 word assignment to complete before becoming fully qualified.
Lots of work to do, so I best get to it...........i'll leave you with some pictures from this weekend.
