Acupuncture Physical Medicine

“Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM) is a western-born style of acupuncture that combines classical (Chinese) acupuncture, with emphasis on meridian points with western medicine treatment of trigger point releases (tight bands of muscle fibers) to unblock physical and emotional holding patterns through the use of musculo/skeletal and viscero-somatic de-constriction modalities. This style of acupuncture was developed by Dr. Mark Seem, founder of Tri-State College of Acupuncture, and lends it western touch to the pioneer of trigger point therapy, Dr. Janet Travell.”
