    Hi
    I have several questions.
    Do you know what states and provinces it is legal for chiropractors to do acupuncture?
    Do you do any seminars in the Denver/Boulder area?
    What do you think of the work of L. Chailow or Stecco-would they be a good introto your work or arethey very different?
    Thanks

      Hello
      To answer you questions, I am afraid that I do not know in which states accupuncture is allowed by Chiropractors. I practice in Canada where in most provinces it is allowed.

      We currently do not put on seminars in the US, only in Canada and Europe…but we plan on doing so soon.

      I am very familiar with the work of L. Stecco…his research is great. The technique however ‘Fascial Manipulation’ is very different from ours.

    Hello. I have been severely suffering from a headache that hasn’t left me since June of 2011…7 months now. I have had MRI’s, bloodwork, and been to many doctors. The very bad pain is located above my right eye (eyelid area) but my entire head, neck and shoulders are tight. (they just don’t hurt like the eyelid area) I am severely depressed and this has destroyed my life. I have been looking into maybe trying trigger point injections but don’t know what kind of doctor to go to who actually knows all the muscles, trigger points, referred pain, etc. Can you please help me? Thank you.
