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 ageing which represent the 7 & 8 year cycles of time
  • Learn a simple and effective Yin style Tui na routine for nourishing, calming, centring and slowing Qi down to support the Yuan Qi, Nourish Kidneys and calm the Shen
  • Learn a powerful routine for working on the Yin Wei Mai; experience this deep vessel tangibly in your body and bring it 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 in a small group 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.

“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.”
