Event description
In this two day seminar you will learn how to treat the organs and meridians of Stomach and Spleen

About this Event

Whether your practice is in the bodywork or ingestive therapies, digestive complaints are among the most common presenting symptoms in clinic. Acupressure offers a way to address issues of the digestive system in a way that can easily be incorporated into any modality. In this seminar you will learn how to treat the organs and meridians of Stomach and Spleen which in Chinese medicine form the central axis of digestion. We will also study the Small Intestine, Large Intestine and Liver and learn ways to balance these organs and meridians.

Five Element Acupressure is a complete system of healing. It is an ancient form of Chinese medicine that aims to restore wellness to the whole body-mind system by freeing and harmonising the natural energy flows of the body. When energy (Qi) becomes blocked and creates symptoms of imbalance, we can use finger pressure on the acupoints to heal these symptoms wherever they occur.

This two-day seminar will provide you with a set of points and treatment patterns to aid a wide variety of conditions such as stomach cramps, nausea, reflux, abdominal distension, gas, constipation and diarrhoea, as well as the fatigue that can result from improper digestion, assimilation and elimination.

There are no prerequisites for this seminar.
