SEIFUKUJITSU THEORY AND CLINICAL PRACTICE 1 (In-person)

CATEGORY: Category 1 Continuing Education Course
PROVIDER #436: AIMC Berkeley 2550 Shattuck Ave, Berkeley CA ● 510.666.8248
CEU HOURS: This course has been approved by the California Acupuncture Board, Provider Number 436, for 16 hours of Continuing Education.

Course Info: Seifukujitsu is a Japanese healing method that is over 1200 years old. It emphasizes the restoration of the body to a state known in China as “Fusheng” or normal state. This is achieved by balancing the body’s energy, and by breaking down soft tissue in areas that have been injured which allows them to properly heal. This course will provide attendees with foundational knowledge and perspective, and help them develop basic physical skills to treat patients with increased efficacy in a relatively short time.

The two-day seminar will cover theoretical, therapeutic, and application principles. Attendees will get an opportunity to learn and practice the basic bodywork form (kata), and specific protocols as stand-alone treatments and in combination with other Asian modalities (acupuncture, guasha, cupping). The course also covers the use of topical liniments and herbal medicine in context of Seifukujitsu.  Click for additional course info.
