ACUPRESSURE- A Practice in Harmony (30 hrs). Fri, Sat, Sun & Mon, Oct 21, 22, 23 & 24 (9 am - 6 pm). This class engages students in the ancient Chinese healing art of Acupressure, a quiet form of energy work which emphasizes a listening touch. Students will learn key points with which to balance energy in the body through the Extraordinary Vessels of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Extraordinary Vessels are powerful channels which have a profound influence on the meridian and organ energy; these are our original flows of qi in the womb from which all other channels come.

We will use a quiet form of energy work which allows the development of a subtle touch and the ability to read subtle energy. Prerequisite: None. Instructor: Kathleen Davis.
