“Thank you so much for coming to Edmonton this past weekend and bringing your knowledge, compassion, and passion to the classroom. I found the course to be so informative and felt a level of ease while learning that was super refreshing and reminded me to enjoy my acupuncture journey. I also just wanted to let you know that I used the knowledge from this weekend on four of my patients this morning!

Still somewhat a taboo subject, the menopause is a powerful rite of passage for women and holds the potential for profound spiritual development.

As practitioners, how can we best support and enable women to have a positive experience into and through the menopause as a fundamental doorway of life? How can we provide the nurturing space for women to feel, process, surrender, and reclaim their power?

In this two day practical workshop for acupuncturists, we will:

  • Explore the role of the Eight Extraordinary Meridians, with a special focus on the Wei Mai vessels, the vessels of aging which represent the 7- & 8-year cycles of time
  • Learn a simple and effective Yin style Tui na routine for nourishing, calming, centering and slowing Qi down to support the Yuan Qi, Nourish Kidneys and calm the Shen
  • Learn powerful routines for working on the Yin and Yang Wei Mai; experience these deep vessels tangibly in your body and bring them to life in your hands
  • Experience alternative methods for accessing Qi and stimulating points
  • Improve your needling techniques and sensitivity and bring greater connection and presence to your needling
  • Improve palpation skills, bodywork confidence and be reminded of the power of therapeutic touch

Take this opportunity to work live with Sarah Pritchard and her Teaching Assistant Isabel Milner while they are here in Canada!

Sarah was one of the first Westerners to practice Tui na in the UK. She is known as an inspiring teacher, workshop leader and practitioner with over 20 years of experience. Sarah is the author of two Tui na books: ‘Chinese Massage Manual’ and ‘Tui na – A Manual Of Chinese Massage Therapy’ both published by Singing Dragon. Both books are used as essential texts on Tui na training courses in the UK, Europe, and the USA.

“The course was very well structured, extremely well taught. Sarah created a safe space which allowed us to connect with the Yin and Yang Wei Mai. Sarah teaches with love. Her deep understanding, caring nature and passion for the subject comes across in every way. Be aware: it can have a very profound effect if you allow yourself to be vulnerable and fully embrace the experience. This is a unique opportunity for self-growth and development which I really recommend.

“I really enjoyed this course. It was brilliant, as usual you set my grey matter off so I get home, the books come out again when I should be desperately finishing off my tax return! Three menopausal patients have floated off down the road very happy this week so they thank you too.

“Thank you once again for an absolutely wonderful weekend of education and enjoyment! I love your courses, I learned so much. The Yin Wei and Yang Wei treatments are so powerful and the flow is just wonderful. I really like the fact that we are “doing”, not just “listening”. I learn and retain more by putting the theory into practice. Your course is the perfect ratio of theory and practice. Thank you!”

-2019 Student, Edmonton, AB


“I would definitely recommend your courses to my colleagues.  Our society needs your treatments and the more of us spreading the Wei Mai glitter, all the better for the world!”

“Wow, that is my gut feeling from the weekend.  I feel inspired, rejuvenated and excited to use what I learned in my work. Several Ah-Ha moments brought me back to the basics of our craft and helped me reconnect the long-forgotten dots. Sarah your delivery of knowledge is so dynamic and unassuming, I was captured and focused every single moment.”
