It’s very rare that massage therapists talk about the internal organ structure, the acupuncture lines and their relationship to the musculature unless you are studying acupuncture or taking a course like shiatsu. But the truth is in both eastern Oriental Medicine and western Applied Kinesiology, it is taught that the acupuncture energetic system, a.k.a. the meridian lines, directly influence the strength and integrity of the muscles. In fact, the meridian lines are treated as extensions of the internal organs. So, if the Gall Bladder is overworked because last night we partied an ate way too much fat as in a large ice cream sundae or consumed way too much alcohol, anywhere that gall bladder meridian runs in your body, those muscles will be compromised and susceptible to injury. Did you ever wake up with a stiff neck and you said I must have slept wrong or caught a draft? Well since the neck is related to the gall bladder, there might have been another possibility, too much pizza and beer. In addition, the gall bladder meridian runs down into the rhomboids, as in those inter-scapular knots we see so often, and it runs right down the hips into the IT Band.
DO YOU SEE WHAT WE’RE GETTING AT?
If you know what foods and lifestyle habits control the meridians and what muscles are directly associated with those meridians, you’ll know something so profound that it will dramatically influence how you approach your massage therapy from this day on! And that’s exactly what this class is going to teach. This presentation will change your entire perspective on how you approach bodywork.
