    Tendino-Muscular Meridians: Where Energy meets Fascia
    Also: TMMs for Fibromyalgia and Cellulite
    Because the Tendino-Muscular Meridians run through the fascia and nourish the skeletal muscles, they are particularly useful for
    healing structural problems and injuries. Chinese texts prescribe them for "pain or stiff, strained or twisted muscles along the course of
    the channel." Also, work with these channels often results in "unwinding" of tensions associated with emotional armoring. We will
    explore the meridians with techniques from acupressure and Shiatsu that can be incorporated into sessions and also given to clients
    for self-treatment.

    Western Body, Eastern Mind: Integrated Anatomy & Physiology
    Western Science Meets Chinese Medicine
    Set your own start time and pace!
    100 Hours: Online! Go to for more info
    See FREE introductory course!
    This intensive course provides an A&P course relevant to one's professional practice by providing both an introductory overview (or
    review) of western anatomy/physiology and a bridge connecting modern western scientific knowledge with the ancient wisdom of
    Traditional Chinese Medicine. This is accomplished by comparing and contrasting western and Chinese organ/physiological theory,
    identifying the influence of acupoints and meridians on muscles and organs, and teaching the muscles and bones in relation to location
    of acupoints. We also use the more left-brain, analytical, western description of biological structure and function to gain insight into the
    more holistic and metaphorical language of the eastern system. Meets the AOBTA requirement for Anatomy and Physiology.

    TendinoMusclular Meridian Technique  (TMMT) Extended Course
    NCBTMB CEs available
    The TendinoMuscular meridians of Chinese Medicine traverse the fascia and nourish all major muscle groups.  Participants learn
    effective techniques that gently open the meridian pathways in the fascia to improve the circulation of Qi and Blood and address the
    pain of conditions like fibromyalgia; cellulite and muscle strain and injury. Because it opens the alignment of the planes of fascia along
    the meridian pathways, the work is practically effortless for the practitioner and comfortable for the client in pain.
    Part I: The course includes  an overview of the twelve TendinoMuscular meridians of acupuncture theory, their associated muscles,
    assisted gentle stretches, and specific manual techniques for each of the twelve meridians. Each day addresses one Yin/Yang pair of
    meridians (e.g. Lung/Large Intestine) and the agonist/antagonist/synergist relations of the associated muscles.

    Qi Kung: The Six Healing Sounds
    This practice is at least 5,000 years old, based on ancient Taoist practices for longevity (and some say immortality!). These are very
    powerful yet simple exercises or gestures, which are accompanied by specific visualizations and sounds. Qi King (means cultivating
    energy) clears negative energies/vibrations from your internal organs. This allows the clear cultivation and circulation of universal life-
    force energy through all your organs. Important practice for health care practitioners.
