This ancient method of healing teaches us to find various points on the feet and hands that affect corresponding parts of the whole body in order to strengthen areas of weakness or discomfort.
Learn to assess various regions of the body for strength and weakness and to enhance and rebalance energy flow. We will use simple techniques and tools such as sound and material objects as well as touch and sensing the energy field.
