FINDING CLASSICAL CHANNELS BY FEEL
LEVEL 1 of a 3-level, 1-yr course taught at Zen Shiatsu Chicago – 30 hours
Do you sometimes wish you knew for sure if you are really on the meridian? Do you wish you felt secure enough in your hand’s sensitivity to trust that you found the point? Do you wish there was another way to learn meridian and point locations besides memorizing anatomical landmarks? Then let’s turn your wishes into reality!
Discover how to locate meridians and points by sense of touch. Learn the missing information that makes it so much easier to feel what you’re looking for. In this course we will consult meridian charts like we do maps – to get an idea of the “landscape” of the meridians. Then, we will palpate the actual channels the way we follow a trail – by literally entering into the “territory” (with our thumbs) and experiencing it through our senses.
Skill-building will include: finding the most effective angles, recognizing when your touch has penetrated into the whole body, confidently finding and treating the whole channel between each point, not just “point-to-point’.
