Acupressure is the healing art of the ancient Taoist sages and is one of the most powerful modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine. By using the fingers alone, acupressure opens up the healing power of the body's vital energy (Qi). In this course you will learn more than just the major pressure points. You will learn the essential theory and practice of approaching the body in terms of its crucial bio-energetic vitalities. Through an emphasis on the ancient Five Element system, you will learn how each of the body's organ-systems is part of an integral whole which relates deeply not only to our physiology, but to the subtle rhythms of our inner and outer lives.
