Time permitting, the day will include instruction in techniques that can be used on their own or to prepare patients for acupuncture, such as how to:
- Open and close, i.e. “pulse,” a patient’s joints to invite deep relaxation and restore natural body rhythms
- Activate and smooth particular energy channels in a patient or their energy system as a whole
- Use your hands and fingers to act like acupuncture needles to release blockages or otherwise alter qi flow for healing purposes
Bruce also will discuss how practice of qigong can be used to support and extend the benefits of qigong tuina and acupuncture, both for you and your patients. The content of each topic will depend on time constraints and the needs of participants.
