This is the perfect opportunity to bridge your understanding of neuroscience with your clinical acupuncture practice.

The 1-day Neuropuncture cadaver lab training will be completed at the famous MARC Institute in Miami, a professional medical-surgical training center.

It is intellectually understood that every human body is different, however, humans do share very basic simple anatomy, especially neuroanatomical structures. There is no replacement for experiential training and observing up close and personal specific structures that we are working with every day! This is a must for any level of Neuropuncture acupuncture practitioner. Examine the human body as our TCM predecessors have, with our eyes, simple tools, and current understanding of the 21st medical sciences.

This will be a special cadaver lab experience presented by Dr. Corradino and special guest Brian Lau. They will be examining three major anatomical regions that will illuminate your understanding of acupuncture.

Dr. Michael D. Corradino, DAOM, MSTOM, AP

Neuropuncture Founder

Dr. Corradino Graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine San Diego, Cum Laude, in 1995 with his Masters in the Sciences of Traditional Oriental Medicine. His undergraduate studies combine molecular biology and philosophy. Dr. Corradino has been in the field of Integrated Chinese Medicine since his graduation (Presently 25+yrs).  Michael’s mission in life is to Master the art and science of acupuncture. He believes with evidence-based neurosciences he can reach and expose quality Traditional Chinese Medicine to as many people as possible in his lifetime and to present an effective, quality option for health care and aiding in the integration of Eastern, Western, and, Natural medicine.  After practicing for almost ten years, Michael relocated to San Diego in 2004 to complete his Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, DAOM, in an effort to further enrich and deepen his understanding of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This was the first graduating class in the nation to complete the DAOM.

Combining all of this knowledge and through extensive research Dr. Corradino has created a new unique system of acupuncture named, Neuropuncture. Neuropuncture is the only complete neuroscience acupuncture system that specifically teaches the practitioner how to neuromodulate their patient’s nervous system back into health with electrical acupuncture. Neuropuncture’s clinical theory is developed by examining the research of the neurophysiological mechanisms of acupuncture, integrating research of electrical acupuncture’s effects on specific neural tissues, while integrating all this within the holistic traditional TCM health model.

Neuropuncture organization is proud to announce the growth and evolution of the system and organization to currently have international certified Neuropuncture Instructors, and to offer an Internationally accredited Doctorate in Neuroscience Acupuncture, DNA.

“The workshop was an excellent experience in so many ways. Dr. Corradino’s teaching style, experience, knowledge and expertise, coupled with his sincerity, humor and passion for his work made learning and hands-on training challenging but accessible. The group of attendants were enthusiastic and supportive which helped make the workshop one of inclusion and harmony. The opportunity to attend a cadaver lab provided a next level understanding of neuropuncture that was truly exceptional. With the Lab and the two days of workshop, we were able to connect theory, concepts and hands-on activities which greatly enhanced our learning and advanced our skills. Thank you for this opportunity and I look forward to future workshops!”

I’ve been using Neuropuncture in my practice solidly for about a month now, and one of the great things I’ve noticed is many of the patients that I’ve treated in the past are starting to come back in for treatment due to someone talking about their treatment with me. My clinic has been built entirely from word of mouth, and at the moment it feels like this has been supercharged. I can only put it down to me loving doing Neuropuncture so much and getting some really positive results.
