The Meridian Connection

January 11, 2025 @ 8:30 am - January 12, 2025 @ 5:30 pm

$350

What if you could skip the non-essentials, simplify the philosophy, and focus on material you will be able to use in your office on Monday morning?  If that sounds appealing, join us! This two-day seminar will take the mystery out of meridians.

We focus 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 itself. You will learn to trace fourteen meridians from memory and discuss the associated muscles, organs, emotions, and pathologies.

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 material will be especially appreciated by practitioners of chi gung, tai chi, or Touch For Health Kinesiology. The practical concepts and hands-on techniques are useful for anyone who is interested in meridians and health.
