A Beginners Guide to Meridians
What are the meridians?
Have you ever wondered what a meridian is or what it does? This experiential one day workshop will introduce you to the meridian energy system which is fundamental to Chinese Medicine.
We will look at the 12 classical meridians that flow throughout the body and enliven every cell with life force known as ‘Ki or Chi’. You will be shown how to locate and connect to several acupoints on a partner through touch. Affecting ki through touch can have a profound influence on a person’s health and wellbeing. You will also see how the amount of Ki’ flowing in the meridians at any one time can influence how we move our body.
There will be practical work in pairs so please wear comfortable clothes that you can move in such as jogging trousers, top and socks.
