Part 2: - Stomach & Spleen (24 hours)
This is an exciting module where we combine beginning techniques with more advanced and specific point work within the Chinese Acupressure system. Students also learn color light therapy techniques to use. MIT has begun researching light therapies and shown them to be efficacious. Students go from a beginner’s touch to a much greater level of sensitivity by being able to track more than one system at a time. This course provides the attention to detail in order to allow the student to feel the body’s tissues unwind, the energetic rhythms of the meridian system/acupressure points as it flows through the body, and the subtle joint movements as sinews are freed. This attention to sensitivity creates a holistic understanding of the specific points, the meridian field, and finding a deeper understanding to the body’s subtle messages. A strong emphasis on self-care is included in this module along with more meridian channel anatomy. Different theories and philosophies will be explored such as Yin/yang, 8 principles, 5 element theory and what the energy channels govern are all covered in this dynamic course offering. Students will also learn how to work with meridian imbalances and their specific role per the individual. Abdominal assessment will be utilized in working with the meridians. However, intuitive assessment by energetic feel will also come into play. Individual courses in this module will cover two meridians at a time. Again, strong emphasis in self-care is taught. Pre-requisites: 24 hours each of MMI, II, III or Permission of the Instructor.
