Tuina Acupressure For Health and Well being (2 day course)

This two day course is a more intensive course because you already have your acu point location and functions. It  introduces you to the most powerful and amazing world of acupressure. Explore the healing potential of this ancient healing art.

This course provides you with exceptional complementary skills and techniques for acupuncturists. Tuina which is sadly not taught as part of most acupuncture courses, allows you to gain additional “hands-on” location skills and allows you to “feel” the Qi point. This short course will offer you a Tuina sequence which can be practiced anywhere especially in your clinic as an additional service offering. It is also designed to help you develop the ability to “feel” the Qi points as practiced in the “blind hospitals” throughout China.

What you will learn:

On the course, you will learn how to locate and stimulate 58 ‘Master Acu Points’ to effectively treat physical problems anywhere in the body, to help symptoms such as pain, low energy, breathing difficulties, and poor digestion. The course also includes an introduction to the traditional Chinese medicines mind-body aspects of Tuina acupressure, covering 8 principal mind-body disharmony and Acu points to help harmonize psychological stress. Tuina acupressure used in this way helps you understand how your thoughts and feelings influence your health and well being, and activate Acu points to improve how you feel both physically, emotionally and mentally.


Your teacher for the course is James O’Sullivan L.Ac. who is a visiting lecturer to Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, a member of the Teaching Council of Ireland, he has developed various Tuina and acupuncture courses for a number of colleges in Europe. His lectures and workshops are full with meaningful and useful material delivered in a fun and pragmatic way. James has deep respect traditional Chinese medicine and the gifts of ancient wisdom that are so practical and relevant today.

Tuina Acupressure is practiced over clothes. Please wear loose cloths for the day.
