1-Day CPD: Treatment strategies for migraines and headaches


Join us for a day of tangible acupuncture: theory and practical skills focusing on treatment strategies for migraines and headaches.

We are delighted to announce a guest appearance by Andrew Nugent-Head, from the Association for Traditional Studies, who will be joining us for a dedicated online lecture on the day. The lecture will be complemented by clinical practice relevant to the treatment of migraines and headaches in the beautiful venue of Miller’s Way. We will also enjoy a friendly tea break in the lovely open kitchen there, giving us an opportunity to connect with other practitioners.


-Guest lecture (online) by Andrew Nugent-Head. Migraine and headache treatment strategies and their applications with different patient types.

-Demonstration and partnered practice of relevant hand and needle techniques (Cooling Sky, Channel Travel, Burning Mountain, Combing, Pushing, Traction).

-Group DaoYin practice of the 8 Storing Qi and Developing Sensitivity Exercises to feed into our hand and needle skills.

-Tea savouring and friendly conversation with practitioners of various levels of experience in this way of practising.

Who can attend?

-Any practitioners who previously attended seminars/courses with Andrew and would like to refresh and deepen their knowledge. We are particularly looking at bringing together practitioners who attended the London seminar series in the past, and look forward to reconnecting with as many people as possible.

-Any practitioners who have attended CPD workshops or short courses either with us at Yi Dao Clinic or with the team at Miller’s Way. This is a great opportunity to meet with acupuncturists who have been working with this perspective for a longer time and can share their experience with you.

-Any qualified acupuncturist not yet familiar with this way of practising, who would like to jump in at the deep end. This is a solid introduction to the tangible way of working with Qi as taught by the Association for Traditional Studies.


The online lecture will be held by Andrew Nugent-Head. The rest of the day will be taught by Conny and Zarig Cooper. Conny and Zarig both attended Andrew’s seminar series in London between 2012 and 2016. They have since been on 6 study trips to the Alternative Clinic in Asheville, USA, to observe the taught material being used in clinical practice. In 2018, they joined Andrew’s teaching team and started assisting at his European seminars. They both teach CPD courses in London and are dedicated to sharing ATS’s teachings of tangible, effective clinical skills with acupuncturists in the UK.
