Musculoskeletal Complaints and Sports Injuries

Online & In-person Workshop

During this workshop participants will be guided through the Chinese medicine theory of treating musculoskeletal disorders and sports injuries. A range of commonly seen disorders will be analysed along with various treatment strategies, before participants move into the practical element of the workshop. Numerous musculoskeletal disorders and sports injury treatments will be demonstrated and then participants will get into groups to practically apply those treatments on each other using the tuning forks.

Two of the most common questions Toni and David are asked is:

  1. Whether tuning forks can effectively treat emotional turmoil?
  2. Can anything be done to help people who are suffering from musculoskeletal disorders and sports injuries?

The good news, to both of those questions, is a definite YES!

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) views the body as being an organic whole, where nothing is isolated! What this means is that when organs or meridians become diseased, they can impact on other areas of the body. This can be via the sense organs, mental activities, hormone issues as well as muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. If you can keep the organs and meridians strong you have a much better chance of keeping the organic whole (body) strong.

“What this basically means for you is that if something falls out of balance in one area, it has the potential to trigger a chain reaction that damages other body systems. Therefore, you can treat the organs/meridians to care for the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints, but you can also work the other way around. By treating the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints, you have the potential to improve the health of the organs and meridians” (David Hartmann).

“Somatic or musculo-skeletal disorders are frequently encountered in general practice. This is hardly surprising given the large bulk of the musculo-skeletal system and its exposure to the external environment…Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has a great deal to offer in the treatment of these problems” (Legge 1997, p.11).

As with all of our workshops, we will also delve into some Mysteries of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
