Description

Acupressure teaches us how to reduce significantly the negative effects of stress and/or worry on the body-mind.

The style demonstrated in this course is more energetic and meditative rather than simply mechanical or reflex style acupressure.

Aim of the course : to develop the feelings and inner experience, more than the knowledge.

Everything is done to make it easy for the beginner, and for the more experienced student, many clues are given to help him progress in his own acupressure practice.

Students are guided step by step in their learning experience.

The course PDF downloadable document gives all necessary information for the students to know precisely how, when and why to do what they are doing when practicing Meditative Acupressure.

Each emotional state (stress/worry) is treated at length throughout 3 videos:

  • Introduction : main outlines
  • Acupressure Energy Points : localisation, name, effects
  • Guided Practice : I demonstrate the practice itself as if I had my student's same needs to re-balance my body-mind energy in order to feel better with myself and with my environment.

Meditative Acupressure is a very positive way to get back in touch with one self, and to teach one self very precious life skills :

  • balancing one self's vital energy,
  • improve one self's health and daily life quality
  • contribute to a better world


Practicing Meditative Acupressure will allow you to face the daily life situations you may find difficult to deal with in an much positive and creative way than it used to be.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone wishing to experience less stress and/or worry on a daily basis

1 Lecture 04:15

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

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.

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.
