About the Event
Understanding the seasons and their effect on the body goes right to the heart of the power of Chinese Medicine. If you want to take control of your health and your life, this is the talk for you. It combines all the elements of Chinese medicine including self-acupressure, herbal medicine, Chinese medicinal cooking and Qi Gong exercise. There will be plenty to experience including Chinese dishes and herbal drinks and their effect on the body. You will also learn some acupressure points as well as Qi Gong movement.
Above all though, this year, the focus is on Mastering the Essence of what the season is about. Through the 20 years of my exposure to Chinese medicine, language and culture I have been able to distil down the core essence of what takes place during the seasonal cycle and how to help you understand and in particular master the techniques to supercharge your own health in accordance with the Spring.
The Spring is all about the ‘Exterior’ of the body which comprises the skin, pores, muscles and bones and is predominantly focused on the upper limbs, back, neck and head. This area needs to be continually refreshed, released and regulated. If it gets stuck for any reason a huge number of health conditions can occur. In this talk you will learn a cornucopia of powerful effective techniques to regulate the exterior of the body and keep yourself in tip top shape!
Do not underestimate the power of this seemingly simple concept in helping you to maintain your health. It goes right to the heart of Chinese Medicine and the art of Yang Sheng (Chinese Medicine self-help). It is really important for health, but also crucial in success in mental focus, emotional balance, physical and martial arts training, Qi cultivation and meditation.
This is the first time I will be sharing this information and talk with the public so don’t miss out!
