Description: Theory, assessment and treatment techniques of Chinese Medicine are taught. These include Five Elements, Yin/Yang, Zang-fu (internal organ) signs and symptoms, tongue reading, pulse taking and Acupressure Point assessment and treatment. Acupressure points learned include the major points along each meridian, the first and last points and pathways of each channel, plus the three primary categories of assessment points and treatment points for each organ (the Back Shu, Front Mu and Source Points). Treatment techniques include balancing the Five Elements using the Creation and Control Cycles, as well as using many Acupressure Points that are used to treat specific conditions. Theory and practice include the interaction between the physiological, emotional and spiritual processes. Included in this training is Medical Qi Gong, the use of Energy Building, Storing and Extending techniques, so the therapist can more powerfully interact with the client. Also included are Windows of the Sky, powerful points that help the client to process on spiritual and emotional, as well as physiological levels. Some of the Windows are additionally stimulated with Essential Oils, to increase their effectiveness.
