The Dynamo of the Meridians: the diaphragm
Date(s): 21 November 2019
Time: 10am - 5pm
Eligibility: Acupuncture practitioners and students
The diaphragm is possibly the most important and yet often neglected muscle in the body. It is considered to be the piston that energizes the whole meridian system.
In this seminar you will learn how to:
- Assess the diaphragm’s 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.
