Kevin has found using herbal plasters, balms and creams topically to be very beneficial when treating his acupuncture patients who have musculoskeletal pain and sports injuries. He has sourced various mediums to enhance his treatments.


Whether it’s for cooling an acute and inflamed injury, or using pads for warming the stomach or cold and deficient conditions, there are various products that are now in the market place that can be used to enhance treatment.


During this day he will be looking at how to recognize specific conditions and what medium to use to enhance our acupuncture treatments. You will discuss the contents and their actions and the best use of these products. You will also get the chance to handle and use the products on each other for experience. Kevin will also provide the company details to purchase the products.


They will be products to deal with:

  • Acute Injury
  • Chronic & degenerative injury
  • Internal Conditions
