Introduction to Diode Rings: Non-Insertive Adjunct Treatments for Musculoskeletal Disorders
Sunday, 10/28 at 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM
This workshop will serve as an overview of Kiiko Matsumoto's latest innovations in the treatment of musculoskeletal and vascular disorders, focusing upon the use of diode rings, a non-insertive adjunct adjunct therapy that can be combined with many modalities of acupuncture treatments. Diode rings are similar to magnets, and have the same general uses. The rings deliver a microcurrent through the skin into the underlying tissues. Unlike the usual distal approach of the KMS style, diode rings can be used directly over a place of pain or numbness, promoting the healing of stressed, inflamed, or injured tissues. Through lecture and demonstration, the attendee will learn how to incorporate diode rings into their treatments to achieve incredible results.
For those that practice a more distal approach to their acupuncture treatments, immediate relief of pain can be elusive. While inserting needles at local sites has the potential to harm inflamed tissues, it does offer a simple and often effective solution in the short term. A fantastic compromise is the use of diode rings, which are a non-insertive alternative to needles that can easily be applied along channels directly at the site of pain. Diode rings are similar to magnets, but more effective, and can offer profound long-term results. In this workshop, attendees will learn how to safely use diode rings as an adjunct to more traditional treatments for musculoskeletal and vascular disorders.
