A Personal Note from Dr. To Dr.

After we sent you an email about our upcoming Acupoint Regenerative Therapies seminar, I felt compelled to share why I am so excited about this class and why I’ve been committed to presenting it for the last five years.
I have been a health care practitioner since 1983. First as a chiropractor, and then in 1994, when I got my master’s degree in Acupuncture from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. Getting that second degree was important because I saw how powerful acupuncture was, and wanted to add it to my repertoire of tools.
Initially, injecting homeopathics and vitamins was helpful, mostly for acute conditions. But in 2017, I took a course from Kris Justesen (who is teaching this course with me). She taught a different treatment protocol and since then; I have been effectively using mostly 5% dextrose combined with vitamin B12 and local anesthetics to treat patients with chronic conditions. The kinds of patients we all have. The ones that come to you because they get relief for a time, but the pain returns. These patients have tried many techniques, but with only temporary relief.
If you are a practitioner looking for a way to treat the cause of these chronic conditions, please join us in Salt Lake City or Vancouver, Washington and learn this technique to add to your repertoire of tools.
Acupuncturists are uniquely qualified to learn and perform injection therapy. Why? Because we understand needle insertion better than other health care professionals and we understand where the level of the condition is located. You will learn simple techniques to treat peripheral nerve entrapment. These nerves are strongly linked to pain perception, joint inflammation, inflammatory bowel disease, neuropathic pain, and other inflammatory conditions.
I thought this technique was too good to be true. When I returned to my practice, I contacted six patients who I’d been treating for years for their chronic conditions. I told each of them I would do 3 treatments, 21 days apart, and afterwards evaluate. Not one of those patients was unhappy with the results. After this experiment, I dove into learning everything I could about injection therapy.
And now I am sharing it with you. If you have questions, please contact me by replying to this email or calling (360) 771-9402. Otherwise, I look forward to seeing you in Vancouver or Salt Lake City.

Sincerely,

Susan K. Shultz, D.C. LAc
