Introduction to Traditional Chinese Medicine

This course is an introduction to the modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and basic Eastern theory. TCM is a complete medical system based on the flow of qi through the body. TCM uses acupuncture/ acupressure, TuiNa (medical massage), nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle to treat the root of dysfunction in the body rather than the symptoms. Course introduces basic theory behind TCM and explores the various modalities. Participants will enjoy actively learning about acupressure and TuiNa through hands-on practice with classmates. Include brief demonstrations of Cupping, GuaSha, Moxibustion, and Shiatsu. Course is a great way to be exposed to a variety of Eastern theory and technique practices.
Pre-requisite(s): Licensed Massage Therapist or related licensed hands-on healthcare practitioner

Sotai I

Sotai is a brilliant technique of body alignment using the body’s own power to adjust itself. It is a powerful and most ingenious safe method. It was developed by Dr. Keiso Hashimoto as a result of his lifelong research and experimentation. Sotai was then brought to the education system by Kikuko Miyazaki. The purpose of the therapy is to correct the structural aspect of the body, to remove any structural interference in the workings of the nervous system as well as interference with blood and lymph circulation. Structural misalignment can lead to malfunctioning of organs and parts of the body, and can cause pain. In terms of oriental medicine, this therapy allows for the free flow of ki (chi) by relaxing tight holding muscles. The tight holding muscles and tendons are in fact the original cause of misalignment. The uniqueness of Sotai is in the use of movement in assessing distortion and imbalance, which the body mobilizes to execute any given movement. It is never about an isolated muscle. Sotai is not interested in analyzing and identifying the muscles, Sotai simply treats it as a group that allows the body to make a specific movement and the treatment addresses this group of muscles.
