5 Highly Effective Acupuncture Patterns-The Sunderlage Protocols Seminar

Instructor: Gary Ditson, DC, LAc & Nicholas J. Gatto, DC

Saturday 1pm – 7pm

Sunday 8am – 2pm

This weekend we welcome back Dr. Gary Ditson and Dr. Nick Gatto to present a very important acupuncture class on our campus. Drs. Ditson and Gatto present the Sunderlage Protocols – a course that introduces and reviews the Sunderlage Acupuncture Patterns starting with Pattern 1 and ending with Pattern 5. The course objective is to teach the practitioners the latest in scientific findings verifying how and why the Sunderlage Acupuncture Patterns work and how to choose which pattern to use on the individual patient, along with how to progress through the patterns. They begin with an introduction and history of acupuncture in the United States; detail Jon Sunderlage’s legal fight for the right to practice acupuncture, the development of the acupuncture patterns and the science of the patterns as it applies to the Pyramid of Health. They begin with Pattern 1 and then move on to Pattern 2. They end the Saturday session with a lab session on Patterns 1 and 2. On Sunday they discuss and demonstrate Pattern 3, Pattern 4, and Pattern 5. In Hour 10 they discuss extra acupuncture points including the use of micro acupuncture to enhance the protocols. This excellent 12-hour presentation wraps up with a lab session on Patterns 3, 4, and 5, and a question and answer session. The class is taught by Dr. Gary Ditson and Dr. Nick Gatto.
