I have recently returned from the lovely Lasqueti Island where I was studying body-mind counselling and five element counselling. In a nutshell these are verbal counselling techniques that encourage the recipient to notice, be curious and become aware of sensations and feelings in the body. Myself, I use acupressure (finger touch and pressure on the body) as well as the body-mind counselling when it seems appropriate.
I have been studying acupressure for the past four years. Each course I take seems to have a LOT of information packed into it. For a while I became daunted by all of the different information that was taught; things such as Chinese Medicine, counselling, advanced treatment styles, and remembering where the many acupressure points are to name a few. At this point in my practice of acupressure I am feeling less daunted and more trusting and curious. I have a big tool kit to draw from and as I work on a client it is a pleasurable challenge to explore, experiment and then go with my intuition as to which acupressure points I will use. I am grateful now for my practice 🙂
