Workshop for Shiatsu practitioners

This weekend workshop is for Shiatsu practitioners and 3rd year Shiatsu Students or Bodyworkers who use Chinese Medicine .

“ The Extraordinary Vessels

– connecting to our deepest core energy”

Learn how the  E.V. support major transitions in our life including menarche, pregnancy, birth, moving house/job, menopause and end of life

The Extraordinary Vessels are pathways created from the time of conception and before the organs develop. They take us back to the safe and supportive space we experienced in our mother’s womb. 

Learn to work on the four Inner Extraordinary Vessels:  Penetrating (Choung), Girdle (Dai) alongside  Conception (Ren) and Governing(Du) Vessels. Understand how they relate to the Outer Vessels: Stepping (Quiao) and Linking(Wei) Vessels. We will also cover some of the connections to the Organs of the Extraordinary Vessels, including the connection of the Heart and Kidney to the Reproductive Organs.

Venue: Dorking, Surrey
Fee: £145 (if booked 8 weeks in advance by 11th March 2022) or £170 full price.
