Would your patients benefit from quick and effective pain relief? Can you imagine their response when their tension melts away in seconds? Can you feel their excitement as they tell their friends to call you? Offer your patients faster, longer-lasting pain relief with Dr. Finkelstein's MPT system that integrates ancient and modern medicine. April 6-7, Sat/Sun, 9a.m.-5p.m. Instructor: Malvin Finkelstein, OMD, LAc, Dipl. OM 13 CEUs/PDAs

Malvin Finkelstein's 35 years of acupuncture practice led him to develop the MPT system, a simple and effective method for relieving pain, increasing range of motion and accelerating healing. It is effective for acute and chronic pain throughout the body and provides fast, long-lasting results. All of the information and techniques are applicable to acupuncture and other natural health practices without the microcurrent device, but the use of the Dolphin Neurostim greatly enhances the effectiveness of Microcurrent Positional Tuina (MPT) in treating disorders of the neck and head. Watch a demonstration of the MPT system in action:

The seminar includes:

  • Detailed anatomical slide presentation.
  • Demonstrations of all points and techniques using Malvin's specialized locations of acupuncture/trigger points.

  • Patient education exercises, posture analysis and detailed class handouts.
