Supporting Women Through the Menopause as a Fundamental Doorway of Life An integrated approach using Tui na, Acupuncture & Moxa
Saturday 4th - Sunday 5th May 2019
MacEwan University Edmonton AB Canada
For Acupuncturists: 14 CEUs
Still somewhat a taboo subject, the menopause is a powerful rite of passage for women and holds the potential for profound spiritual development.
As practitioners, how can we best support and enable women to have a positive experience into and through the menopause as a fundamental doorway of life? How can we provide the nurturing space for women to feel, process, surrender, and reclaim their power?
In this two day practical workshop for acupuncturists, we will :
Explore the role of the Eight Extraordinary Meridians, with a special focus on the Wei Mai vessels, the vessels of ageing which represent the 7 & 8 year cycles of time
Learn a simple and effective Yin style Tui na routine for nourishing, calming, centring and slowing Qi down to support the Yuan Qi, Nourish Kidneys and calm the Shen
Learn a powerful routine for working on the Yin Wei Mai; experience this deep vessel tangibly in your body and bring it to life in your hands
Experience alternative methods for accessing Qi and stimulating points
Improve your needling techniques and sensitivity and bring greater connection and presence to your needling
Improve palpation skills, bodywork confidence and be reminded of the power of therapeutic touch
Supporting Women through the Menopause as a Fundamental Doorway of Life
'I really enjoyed this course. It was brilliant, as usual you set my grey matter off so I get home, the books come out again when I should be desperately finishing off my tax return! Three menopausal patients have floated off down the road very happy this week so they thank you too.'
'Wow, that is my gut feeling from the weekend. I feel inspired, rejuvenated and excited to use what I learned in my work. Several Ah-Ha moments brought me back to the basics of our craft and helped me re-connect the long-forgotten dots. Sarah, your delivery of knowledge is so dynamic and unassuming, I was captured and focused every single moment.'
