This is a 10-session, semi-monthly course.

This practical introduction to the ancient wisdom of Traditional Oriental Medicine (TOM), also often called Chinese Medicine, is a 10-session, semi-monthly course, in which knowledge and practical self-care skills are cultivated for the purpose of improving and strengthening the healing potential of your body.

You will learn basic TOM, including theories of qi, yin and yang, the 5 elements, and acupuncture meridians and apply them during practices of acupressure and qigong movement. At course completion, you will be able to use acupressure points and movement patterns to influence the physical and emotional health of specific organ systems of your body. You will also be able to apply qigong breathing techniques to your daily activities in order to relax, improve your mental clarity, and emotional awareness. The power of healing is in your hands. Please join us.
