Acupressure is the Chinese healing art of restoring balance to Chi (lifeforce energy) to optimize health. In this introduction to Acupressure course, you will learn more than the fundamentals. You will learn potent points and Acupressure sequences for your clients' most common complaints. On Day 1, you will learn point locations and functions to address: shoulder and neck tension, headaches, insomnia, stress, menstrual cramps, and weak immunity. You will learn massage techniques to activate points within the context of a Western massage, and Jin Shin Acupressure, a powerful technique that is gentle on your body but works deeply on your clients. Throughout the class, you will have the opportunity to cultivate self-care by using these Acupressure sequences on yourself, as well as to practice on others. Day One and Day Two can be taken together or independently. 8 CE hours
