A continuing education course designed to look at the body from the Classical Chinese Medicine perspective of the Ancestral Sinews. We will explore the somatic spirituality of multi-generational body armoring patterns and how to bring awareness to these patterns with Yin and Yang Tui Na. Participants will learn a full-body Tui Na sequence to guide intentions to the three levels of Qi in the body.
In this class we explore the core hand techniques of Tui Na as movements that generate waveforms in the body in order to remove stagnation and awaken the flow of Qi. We will look at the body from the perspective of the Ancestral Sinews, the 5 Pivots that govern our upright posture through the spinal curvature and the 3 bony cavities. We will also learn how the Ancestral Sinews relate directly to how we use touch to send waveforms through the body for healing. This is a hands-on, experiential class suitable for both beginners and experienced Tui Na practitioners. This class includes Qigong exercises that relate to the hand techniques of Tui Na.
