Event Description

According to Chinese Medicine, the pain and dysfunction associated with fibromyalgia and cellulite result from poor circulation of both Qi and Blood. This workshop introduces a simple yet powerful technique using the TendinoMuscular Meridians, which run through the fascia, nourish the skeletal muscles, and are especially powerful for stagnant Qi & Blood.

Participants will learn to identify TMMs commonly associated with fibromyalgia and
cellulite, assess their condition and apply specific techniques to address stagnant Qi & Blood within them. They will also be introduced to the Wood Element of Five Element theory, which is implicated in both these conditions.

Participants will learn acupressure, shiatsu and massage techniques that engage the client’s flow of Qi to release fascial constrictions and reduce the physical effort required by the practitioner. The techniques are gentle and non-invasive for clients who are frail or in pain; yet the results have been compared favorably to more labor-intensive and uncomfortable methods. The techniques can be easily incorporated into massage and bodywork sessions and adaptations can be given to clients for self-care.
