Massages in the body’s energy pathways are used in several different treatment systems, including Shiatsu, Tui Na, body therapy and traditional Thai massage. In Shiatsu, Tui Na and body therapy, one works from the Chinese mapping of the body’s energy pathway system, also called meridian pathways. In traditional Thai massage, one works instead from a Thai mapping, where energy paths are called late lines. In this course we will work only on the Chinese system, with emphasis on the body therapeutic massage techniques.
What is the difference between the different meridian massage techniques?
The systems contain both differentiating techniques and some that recur in all the systems. You work in all the systems with acupressure pressure in the body’s energy pathways with the aim of creating a balance between yin and yang, since an imbalance between these two will mean that qi (the body’s life energy) cannot flow freely and you can get sick.
At the end of the course, you will be able to perform a full treatment of the body’s front and back using the learned techniques.
The course will focus on the practical. The theory will therefore primarily be reviewed through the practical exercises at the massagetable.
What do I learn on the course?
The course will focus mainly on the practical part and training of the techniques of the chip. Theoretically, you will be introduced to what meridian massage is. You will be taught by an experienced Meridian massage practitioner and instructor.
