Curriculum

Section 1: Wellcoming introduction - How to use this course
04:15

This course has been specially designed to make Acupressure easily accessible to beginners.

But anyone already informed and interested by the subject will learn more about it and improve his own practice.

The ACUPRESSURE style demonstrated here, is meditative rather than simply mechanical or reflex.

Aim of the course: develop your inner experience rather than knowledge.


ACUPRESSURE POINTS

In your PDF document, the points are designated by their chinese and english names as well as, according to the western system, by a number associated to the name of their meridian. The points functions and the way to stimulate them are clearly indicated to guide you step by step into the practice.

Each emotional state studied in the course (stress, worry) is presented at length through

  • 3 sets of videos: Introduction - The Points - Guided Practices
  • 1 downloadable PDF course document


What is the ACUPRESSURE practice about?

  • Exploring the energy points
  • Discovering their effects
  • Being aware of the body responses to your Acupressure Touch
  • Taking your time and enjoying all feelings arising inside yourself!


My suggestion to make the most of your learning experience:

  • start watching one "Practice Video" to feel rather than to understand or memorise, the whole thing
  • then find the points on yourself with the matching "Points Video"
  • and practice a complete session along with the "Practice Video"


Take your time, and enjoy yourself ! this the key for an effective and healing Acupressure practice.

Instructor Biography

Sonia Bruce, Life Coach - Shiatsu Therapist

Considering life experiences as opportunities to deepen mental understanding and knowledge is one of the consequences of my initial training as a science student.

African and Eastern cultures then made a strong and so far lasting impression on me while studying some of their arts (afro-cuban dance and percussion, Yoga, Acupuncture and Shiatsu, Tai Chi and Chi Gong, Zazen meditation).

Since then, by the blending of both these major influences, the body-mind turned to be my first partner in terms of self balancing and inner growth.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mes études de Biochimie ont renforcé la tendance d'un esprit pratique et curieux qui favorise l'expérimentation et l'expérience comme bases de compréhension et de connaissance.

Puis par le contact prolongé avec les cultures originaires de l'Afrique ou de l'Extrême Orient, j'ai appris en pratiquant certains de leurs arts (danse, yoga, massages, tai chi chuan, qi gong, zazen), à vivre le corps comme mon premier partenaire d'équilibre personnel et de connaissance intérieure.

Depuis lors, l'unité corps-esprit est devenue mon partenaire privilégié en termes d'équilibre intérieur et de développement personnel.
