ATMS Sponsored Seminars in 2018

Acupressure for the Emotions

2 Day Seminar

This two day seminar offered in three cities in 2018 is designed for practitioners who wish to incorporate acupressure skills into their clinics. Suitable for bodyworkers, kinesiologists, naturopaths and others.

This two day seminar provides the practitioner with a practical way of recognising where emotions are contributing to physical imbalances and using acupressure points to release the Qi blocks that are causing these imbalances.

In working with the meridians of Qi, you will learn specific treatment patterns to address areas of the body where emotions are often held; understand the Chinese medicine concept of emotions stored in the yin organs and the specific correlations of organ/emotion; learn and practise five separate treatment patterns focusing on the outer shu points of the yin meridians; and learn body focusing techniques and basic counselling skills to facilitate the processing of emotions by the client.
