The Dynamo of the Meridians: the diaphragm

Date(s): 04 October 2018

Time: 10am - 5pm

Eligibility: Acupuncture graduates & 3rd year acupuncture students

Venue: College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, Reading

Why is the diaphragm possibly the most important and yet often neglected muscle in the body? It’s considered to be the piston that energises the meridian system. Learn how to assess its function through visual diagnosis, palpation, rib expansion and breath holding time. Review the diaphragm’s anatomy and what happens when breathing is impaired, especially during stress. Learn simple corrective techniques using acupuncture points, applied kinesiology reflexes and breathing exercises. 


Marek Urbanowicz studied shiatsu, massage and reflexology, before qualifying as an acupuncturist. He went on to train with JR Worsley for ten years, then studied Japanese acupuncture and applied kinesiology – all of which he utilises in his practice.
