Meridians and Myofascia: A fascial approach to Eastern acupressure

This workshop examines how Eastern bodywork systems based on acupuncture points and meridians have a scientific anatomical basis in the fascial system.

You will learn:

  • An overview of meridian systems in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Thai massage and their anatomical relevance to intermuscular fascial planes
  • Hands on techniques derived from Traditional Chinese medicine that aim to release fascial restrictions
  • Powerful acupressure points for the treatment of common chronic musculoskeletal disorders including low back pain and neck and shoulder pain.
  • How to sense blockages in ‘qi’ and the relationship to areas of altered fascial composition
  • Relevant scientific research showing the parallels between Eastern theory and Western knowledge of fascia

A hands-on model for integrating both Eastern and Western thinking into bodywork clinical practice will be demonstrated and you will leave the workshop with a range of dynamic new techniques that you can incorporate into your clinical practice.
