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.
The focus will be on applying acupuncture concepts to massage therapy assessment and treatment. You will become familiar with some acupuncture points but the real emphasis is on the meridian pathway itself. You will learn to trace fourteen meridians from memory and discuss the associated muscles, organs, emotions, and pathologies.
On the second day, you will learn about 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 your 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. 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.
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 practical concepts and hands-on techniques are useful for anyone who is interested in meridians and health.
Something to write with. Dress in layers (as always) since temperature may be difficult to control. We will not be disrobing in this class.
