Chinese Medicine : Points and Channels

A 12-hour course

4 Week Course

June 6-27, Sundays 5:30-8:30pm

Zen Shiatsu grows out of the ancient intellectual traditions of Chinese Medicine, and the practice of acupuncture and herbalism.

In our 96-hour Chinese Medicine curriculum, we do an in-depth study of these traditions, to understand the place of Zen Shiatsu within the greater context of Chinese Medicine and learn to communicate fluently with other professionals in the field.

Chinese Medicine III details the special categories of points useful for their specific energetics.  These applications will be correlated to the disease patterns previously studied, so that students can begin to incorporate specific acupoint selection into their Zen Shiatsu treatments.

Students will be left with a comprehensive map of the Chinese Medicine understanding of the meridian system, and how it relates to Zen Shiatsu practice.


Topics Include:

•  Twelve Regular Channels
•  Extraordinary Vessels
•  Connecting Vessels
•  Five Element Points
•  Connecting Points


This class is open only to students enrolled in our complete Shiatsu Certification Program.
