This course presents the valuable and ancient techniques of Meridian massage (Shiatsu), Gua Sha and cupping. This class is ideal for LMTS and APs looking for treatment solutions for chronic pain and whom want to work with a larger energetic view of the body. Shiatsu-translated as finger pressure, is
a method of working with the fascial rivers of the acupuncture meridians. The therapist will learn shiatsu techniques to liberate the flow of energy in the 12 regular meridians on the treatment table. Gua Sha- a simple scraping technique performed on the skin, is useful for addressing symptoms of the common cold, pain and reveals deeper patterns of imbalance in the fascia. Cupping, the application of a glass or plastic jar (both will be shown) used to provide suction, is a technique used to draw and remove blockages from the fascia and meridian channels. The unique combination of Gua Sha and cupping together in the treatment of chronic and stubborn pain patterns is the gem of this course. It is so effective and effortless, most practitioners find it unnecessary to use needles, employ traditional NMT strategies or strain themselves with deep tissue methods. Dr Deanine’s unique combination of these techniques save time, money and energy and at the same time- delivers powerful and lasting results. This course presents the following:
* Basic techniques for working with the meridians with a client on the table.
* Learn indications and contraindications for treating chronic pain, injuries, scar tissue with meridian fascial cupping.
* Understand the deeper-physical and energetic factors contributing to pain patterns.
