Yang Arm Meridians and the SBAL
This online course will discuss various acupuncture points on the myofascial line known as the Superficial Back Arm Line (SBAL).
Traditionally, the large intestine and triple warmer meridians are said to pass through the same area as the SBAL. This course will compare and contrast various points on the SBAL and explore how these points have similar functions in treating headaches, back pain, and more.
Join the Acupuncture Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) for this 60-minute online course 'Yang Arm Meridians and the SBAL'.
