This intensive seminar is based on Tom Bisio’s popular book, A Tooth From the Tiger’s Mouth. Students directly experience the power and effectiveness of Chinese Medicine by learning sophisticated multi-modality methods of treating and rehabilitating sports injuries, something Chinese medicine is very good at, often succeeding where Western medicine fails. The methods taught in this class are as effective today as they were 1,000 years ago.
TTM Gong Fu Sports Medicine 1 is an excellent starting point for those interested in learning practical and immediately useful Chinese medicine skills. Open to anyone, this class focuses on the treatment of sports injuries, martial arts training injuries, and other types of trauma including burns, cuts, insect bites, etc. Ideal for trainers, physical therapists, coaches, martial arts instructors, parents whose children play sports, and anyone interested in treating their own injuries with effective, practical and easy-to-use techniques.
Our goal: if you or someone you know pulls a muscle or sprains their ankle the day after taking this class, you will know exactly what to do in order to speed healing, reduce recovery time and prevent the sprain from become a chronic, debilitating injury.
This in-person seminar builds upon the online learning version of this class, with more information, demonstrations and invaluable Q+A time.
