    • Gain tools to enhance your clinical effectiveness with hands on instruction and guidance, enabling immediate assimilation into your practice!

    • Jeffrey Dann and Mark Petruzzi will delve into the influences of bodywork and anatomical exploration established during the Edo Period of Japan and elaborate on these ideas with modern understandings.

    You will learn to: 

    •  Discern the various layers of tissues, identifying their individual metabolic processes, and recognize their attractions.  

    • Differentiate the palpation of arteries, nerves, fascia and lymphatics… highlighting the channels as myofascial, myo-vascular, and myo-neurological pathways.  

    Jeffrey Dann PhD, LAc, has been an educator and community health practitioner for over 40 years. His unique style of structural acupuncture (Koshi Balancing) is based on his years of studying a variety of Japanese manual medicine and acupuncture styles.  This has been deepened by his continued study of Osteopathic manual medicine, particularly John Pierre Barrall’s Visceral Manipulation.  Jeffrey’s courses are in demand throughout the United States teaching courses in New York, Portland, New Mexico and San Francisco.  He has also taught internationally in Japan, China, Turkey, England and Italy.  For 15 years Jeffrey was the president of the Traditional Japanese Acupuncture Foundation of Hawaii and for the past 20 years, Jeffrey has been living and practicing in Boulder Colorado, where he is director of the Aloha Wellness Associates clinic.  Jeffrey has been the editor and frequent author of the North American Journal of Oriental Medicine. For 10 years he was co-director with Stephen Brown for the In-Touch Acupuncture and Moxibustion training programs in Japan.

    Mark Petruzzi MS, LAc, LMT is the Director of the Traditional Japanese Acupuncture Institute.  He runs a private practice in Port Jefferson Station, NY.  Mark is appointed at Stony Brook University Hospital holding both in-patient and out-patient privileges. He was a presenter at Stony Brook’s Palliative Care Conference for Pediatric Oncology in 2016 and 2017. Mark has been adjunct faculty at the New York College of Health Professions since 2005, teaching courses in their Acupuncture and Massage Therapy programs as well as supervising student interns in the Japanese Acupuncture clinic. He was a lead instructor for the Traditional Japanese Acupuncture team at Tristate College of Acupuncture in Manhattan from 2009-2018 and was the acupuncturist and massage therapist for the Adelphi University Dance Program for 15 years. In addition, Mark has delved deeply into Barral’s Visceral Manipulation as well as Chikly’s Lymphatic Drainage Therapy.

    Jeffrey and Mark look forward to giving acupuncturists an introductory experience of how to integrate osteopathic manual techniques to one’s acupuncture practice. They hope if you are sufficiently stimulated to take more in-depth classes from the Barral Institute and the Chikly Health Institute.
