The body never lies – learn to listen through the lense of Chinese Medicine

The body is always trying to re-balance and restore itself. It speaks to us and gives us strong messages telling us what we need to do to restore health and wellbeing.

The meridians and the quantity and quality of the Qi that flow through them, act as signposts creating a clear map to health.

Learning to listen to the body and read what it has to say can help prevent illness but it can also enrich your life experiences.

During this Introduction to Traditional Chinese Medicine course we will use the TCM model of the being to tap into a very solid and informed body of knowledge. We will explore the nature of Qi in health and disharmony both in our internal and external environment. We learn how to listen to, recognise, understand and move Qi in all its forms from the emotional and mental to the physical and spiritual.

Qi gathers and flows in and about the being through its organ energy systems (the Zang Fu) and its meridians (the Jing Luo).
Our thoughts, feelings, habits, diet, relationships and our living and working environment all have an effect on our Qi and this effect creates a pattern of wellness or unwellness in our being.

Course Content

The most important element of this course is to help you identify the constitutional patterns of your life.  How you think, feel and act, on a continual basis creates patterns of wellness, harmony, illness and disharmony.
This course will give you the knowledge, tools and awareness you need to transform these patterns and change behaviours to enhance your health and improve your life.  You will learn the language of these patterns through:

  • Understanding the concept of Yin and Yang
  • Understanding the The 5 Elements
  • What is Qi, how does it work and how can we work with it.
  • A complete working profile of the Zang Fu/Organ Systems of the being.
  • An introduction to the energy channels and meridians, their location and function.
  • An introduction to acupressure points, their location, their potency and actions
  • The tools to interact with the Qi using:
    • Acupressure stimulation of the key points for each system
    • Meditation and visualisation to influence the Qi
    • Qi Gong Body Movement to bring harmony to the being
    • Journaling to uncover your true self

Upon completion of the course

The student will have a deeper knowledge and understanding of how our emotions affect our physical body.  They will learn the language of their spirit which will help them make worthwhile changes to benefit their whole life.
