The Meridian Connection

Note: The Meridian Connection has expanded to Two Days (16 CE hours) based on popular demand. If you completed the one-day Meridian Connection class, you can take this 16 hour version for the REPEAT rate of $185 when space is available.

Learn how to use acupuncture meridians to empower your bodywork and improve clinical results! Structured for accelerated learning and practical application, this two-day seminar will take the mystery out of meridians.

Our focus will be on applying acupuncture concepts to massage therapy assessment and treatment. We will learn some acupuncture points but the real emphasis is on the meridian pathway itself. We will trace fourteen meridians and study the associated muscles, organs, emotions, and pathologies. If you keep hearing about meridians and wish you understood them better, this is a rare opportunity to increase your confidence and therapeutic effectiveness by spending two days immersed in them.

On the second day, we cover several categories of acupressure points including entry and exit points, front mu and back shu points and command points.  Working with these points will deepen our understanding and comfort level with the meridian pathways. It sounds like a lot of material but the content of this class is structured to meet the practical needs of massage therapists.

Expect to become comfortable locating acupressure points as well as using combinations of points to treat meridians, organs and systems. We will use intention as well as physical stimulation in this approach. Our own personal meridian systems will be balanced several times throughout the weekend and we will finish by practicing assessment and treatment in triads.

This seminar is a perfect complement to classes in muscle testing or Touch For Health Kinesiology. The material will also be very much appreciated by practitioners of chi gung or tai chi. The concepts and hands-on techniques are useful for anyone who is interested in meridians and health.

Learn how to use acupuncture meridians to empower your bodywork! Structured for accelerated learning, this two-day seminar can provide more practical understanding than an entire course in shiatsu or acupressure.

Our focus will be on applying acupuncture concepts to massage therapy assessment and treatment. We will learn some points but emphasis is on the meridian pathway itself. We will trace fourteen meridians and study the associated muscles, organs, emotions, and pathologies. If you keep hearing about meridians and wish you understood them better, this is a rare opportunity to increase your confidence and therapeutic effectiveness by spending two days immersed in them.

On the second day, we cover five categories of acupuncture points including entry and exit points, front mu and back shu points and command points. Working with these points will deepen our understanding and comfort level with the meridian pathways. It sounds like a lot of material but the content of this class is structured to meet the needs of massage therapists and other bodyworkers. Each segment is designed to enhance clinical results.

This seminar is a perfect complement to classes in muscle testing and Touch For Health Kinesiology. The material will also be very much appreciated by practitioners of chi gung or tai chi. The concepts and hands-on techniques are useful for anyone who is interested in meridians and health.

Bring:

Something to write with. Dress in layers (as always) since temperature may be difficult to control. We will not be disrobing in this class.
