Length: 2.5 hours
Each class is about 2.5 hours. Classes are scheduled as you are ready for the next class. Fee includes all course materials, booklets, charts, and “recipes” or “flows” or “releases” showing how to release each channel and how to use the acupressure points for specific issues. Plus, I am always available for questions. You may schedule as many classes as you like, or do as much self study as you like. The basics can be covered in a few classes, then it’s up to you how much you want to practice on your own and study. So you can tailor it to your schedule and your motivation and finances.
When I am satisfied you understand the essentials and can take pulses, decide on a treatment plan from pulses and input from client, and easily find points and perform the releases, understand extraordinary channels, organ channels and segmental areas, I certify you to practice acupressure. Beyond the classes, it’s about practice and getting comfortable doing it.
I teach acupressure by using the acupuncture points and channels, so you will always be able to understand the points and channels from an acupuncturist point of view, which uses Traditional Chinese Medicine. Many acupressure schools or teachers use only selected points or have re-numbered them for an easier system, so they don’t relate to acupuncture points, which is a universal language. I much prefer using the universal language of Chinese Medicine.
Acupressure is also wonderful for self treatments.
