Hundred Meetings

British Conference of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

22-24 September 2017
Wokefield Park, Reading

Sarah Pritchard

Workshop title

Creative flow of the hand and needle

Workshop times

Sunday 11.30 - 1600

Workshop description

All needling techniques are born out of the ancient massage manipulations of An mo (Chinese Massage Therapy).  Some points and channels may be better stimulated with hands and others with needles. Having the flexibility to use both in practice gives us the versatility and potential to flow creatively with the changing dynamics of our patients’ qi in the treatment space.
In this session, Sarah will look at simple and effective Tui na techniques and methods that can be integrated into your practise.  She will discuss and play with ideas for working locally with our hands and distally with needles and vice versa. She will also explore ideas for opening channels, softening, moving and dispersing stagnation, nourishing, and warming qi, calming and soothing the Shen.
