In this class, you will study 14 muscles and become familiar with their associated acupuncture meridians. You will learn how to accurately test each of these muscles using a refined manual resistive testing method. When a problem or weakness is discovered, you will practice using neurolymphatic reflexes, neurovascular reflexes and origin/insertion technique to resolve it. Also included in this class are methods of pain relief, food testing and an amazingly effective technique called emotional stress release (ESR).

At the end of this seminar, you will be able to perform a general treatment protocol called a “Touch For Health Balancing”. You will also be able to balance your partner for a specific goal, which utilizes the nervous system and conscious mind in order to enhance results. This easily learned set of skills can be used to keep you, your loved ones and your clients at optimal levels of health.

Prerequisite: None

(Note: An excellent complement to this class is a one-day seminar called “The Meridian Connection”. Take them together if possible.)
