Topic: INTEGRATION OF ACU-POINT THERAPY TO ACCELERATE SKIN REPAIR
Presenter: Kathy Pedersen, (Dip.Cos, Dip.Myo)

Ageing is the accumulation of damage, with various visible signs that the body is unable to repair as it once did. Internally, our cells are moving more slowly – they may be sluggish and tired, and unable to keep up with the requirements of detoxification and repair like they once did. While there are several technologies that aim to support the skin’s regeneration, many of these strategies are often based on increasing trauma and inflammation.

Amazing results in skin detoxification and rejuvenation can be achieved through a non-invasive modality based on Static Magnetic Fields (SMF) utilising acu-point matrix to initiate accelerated skin repair for anti-ageing purposes. Utilising Eastern philosophy and Western concepts to offer age control treatments this method activates a biological anti-ageing process, moving collagen and elastin upwards to naturally increase the organic compounds produced by the body to protect the skin from free-radicals, oxidative stress, and damage. The results are long term, sustainable skin recovery through special age-control programs designed to encourage natural skin recovery through an organic process.

Kathy Pederson is an internationally renowned master-trainer and educator in the bio-regulatory and regenerative effects through the use of Static Magnetic Fields (SMF) and approved education provider for the Acupuncture Association of Australia. She is a practitioner for over 30 years. Her multi-disciplined natural therapies practice that is based on the Gold Coast houses a team of practitioners offering integrative therapies for lifestyle modification, pain management and anti-ageing treatments.

At this lecture you will learn:

  • Skin repair and nerve damage correction techniques using SMF theory
  • Gain an understanding of integrative dermal assessment based on TCM principles
  • Detoxification – an ancient TCM perspective of Qi flow for skin disorders
  • The micro-system of traditional Eastern facial zones.
