Fundamentals of Traditional Chinese Medicine - (40 Hours Cost: $750)

Our mission is to educate health care professionals about the science and application of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Healing Path seminars include lectures, demonstrations, case studies and experiential learning sessions applying T.C.M. fundamentals, Diagnosis, Acupressure, and QIGong.

In China, Traditional Chinese Medicine (T.C.M.) has been practiced for millennia. A large percentage of the earth’s population relies on this system of energywork to maintain and restore health. The ancient Chinese Sages, Shamen and Healers had the ability to feel, see and intuit the energy pathways and vortexes of the human body. This knowledge has been passed from one healer to another for an estimated 6,000 years. We are presently living in a fortunate time when esoteric knowledge, that was available only to the few, is now freely available to many. Chinese Medicine and Qi Gong knowledge was for centuries kept secret in Taoist and Buddhist monasteries, marshal arts societies and passed along family lineages within the circles of nobility.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a healing system that is very effective and very satisfying to learn. In this 40 hour course you will gain an understanding of the principles of this system. You will learn how to diagnose patterns of disharmony; treatment principles, and appropriate acupressure techniques. You will learn QI Gong practices, which will enhance your own energy; and develop your ability to feel the energy of others. This training is based on standards set by the American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia (AOBTA).
