Zang Fu Tui Na is a unique approach to the practice of Chinese Medicine offering a direct, hands-on method of diagnosing organ imbalances, while simultaneously eliciting effective, immediate and profound changes in the body. This important and rarely taught aspect of Tui Na can be more effective than acupuncture and Chinese herbs in regulating the Qi dynamic,  calming the Shen (spirit), and harmonizing the functions of the internal organs. Zang Fu Tui Na can literally double your clinical effectiveness and diagnostic ability.

Zang Fu Tui Na teaches methods of regulating not only the function of the internal organs (Zang Fu), but the whole body through  direct and indirect energetic visceral mobilization techniques.

Did you know that chronic shoulder and neck pain often comes from  restrictions in the fascia around the internal organs?

In the Zang Fu Tui Na series, students simultaneously learn four interconnected perspectives in relation to the internal organs and their fascial connections:

  1. Nei Gong and Daoist Meditation
  2. Chinese Medicine Zang Fu Organ Theory
  3. Western Anatomy and Physiology
  4. Jing Luo (Meridian) Theory and Acupuncture Points

Students will learn two complete Qi Gong methods that facilitate deeper understandings of the Organs and their Qi Dynamic.
