Electro-acupuncture neurostimulation for voiding dysfunction
–Urge-frequency syndrome, urge incontinence, stress incontinence and unobstructive urinary retention
by Prof.Siyou Wang Shanghai research insititte of acupuncture and meridian
Date : TBC Time: 10 am-4:30 pm Full Price: £75.00

The Lecture:

  • Urge-frequency syndrome
  • Urge incontinence
  • Stress incontinence
  • Unobstructive urinary retention

About Lecture:

Electroacupuncture neurostimulation (EANS) is valuable in treating the situations above. EANS is a combination of acupuncture in traditional Chinese medicine and electrical neuromodulation from Western medicine. It includes “four sacral points” EANS (electrical pudendal nerve stimulation, EPNS) and “four abdominal points” EANS (electrical iliohypogastric nerve stimulation, EINS). Strong EPNS can simulate pelvic floor muscle training to treat stress incontinence. Moderate EPNS or EINS can induce a strong inhibition of the micturition reflex and detrusor hyper-reflexia to treat urge-frequency syndrome and urge incontinence. Moderate EPNS or EINS may also interfere with the increased afferent activity arising from the urethral sphincter, restore the sensation of bladder fullness and reduce the inhibition of the detrusor muscle contraction to treat unobstructive urinary retention.

About Lecture:

Pulse, tongue diagnosis and differentiation are a unique method of assessing health conditions and essential knowledge to practice Chinese medicine. This has been developing consistently for the past 2000 years and this is hugely beneficial to modern clinical practice. However, many important aspects are missed in modern day Chinese medical education due to various reasons. The missing “links” are well established by clinical researchers and studies in the past 20 years. Professor Fanyi Meng, with his academic background and profound knowledge, will bring his research findings to help you master all these diagnostic skills in an efficient manner.

This is an opportunity for qualified practitioners to refresh their knowledge and skills in Chinese medicine diagnosis with evidence developed in the past 20 years. Some modern methods of pulse and tongue diagnosis exercise are widely regarded as the most advanced levels of Chinese medicine. The case studies focus on acupuncture solutions. You are welcome to bring in your own case studies for discussion but please send this to the course organiser 3 days prior to the course for preparation.
