Description

What Will You Learn?
Discover the theories, practices and techniques of acupressure – an ancient Chinese healing therapy that targets blockages in the flow of ones Chi, to eradicate illness or discomfort from the body. Learn how acupressure works, how to apply the therapy, and the steps to take to open a business helping clients to overcome their conditions.
Acupressure is based on the concept of life energy (also known as Chi or Qi), which flows through the body along pathways known as meridians. The belief is that many of the discomforts or even diseases that we suffer with are a result of blockages occurring in these meridians, causing a negative effect to the flow of our life energy. Acupressure is an alternative medicine technique that identifies specific points on the body (known as acupoints) where the flow of our life force is being hindered and, rather than using needles as acupuncture does, uses precise finger placement to apply pressure to these areas to unblock the pathway, freeing up the flow of life force and relieving symptoms.
It is particularly effective in the relief of stress-related ailments and preventive health care for boosting the immune system. It releases tension, increases circulation, reduces pain, and develops spirituality and can be applied to the self, as well as others.
Studying the Acupressure Diploma Course, you will learn exactly what this ancient practice is and the how it works, the theories behind it, what the different types of acupressure are, common ailments that can be helped with the treatment, and the precautions you should take when applying acupressure..
The problem many people have when contemplating an Eastern alternative medicine, such as acupressure, is that they compare it with Western medicine, but the two are so different they become incomparable.
