  • Ear Acu-press Therapy – Using the ear as a microcosm of the body to enhance therapies

    About the course:

    Drawing from her knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Reflexology, Denise Hanlon has researched and wrote this one-day workshop on Ear Acu-press Therapy. This is based on tactile manipulation of the reflex points on the surface of the ear, or auricle, to alleviate pathological conditions in other parts of the body. It can be a stand alone treatment or it can be combined with pressure applied to tender regions of the feet and hands to relieve specific disorders of the organs and body aches and pains.  It can be used by any therapist as an add on to their own treatments.

  • Introduction to the Chakra System

    About the Course

    The Chakras are part of our subtle anatomy. They are junction points between mind and matter. It is through our subtle bodies that our mind and spirit can communicate with our body.  The Chakras bring the energy “down” from the insubstantial to the substantial, that is, they make the energy more dense so we can “communicate” with it and it can communicate with us.  Understanding what the energy of the Chakras has to teach you can help you to understand how your energy is drained and can teach you skills to energise you and your life.
