Dr. Shipe has selected varous common imbalances that respons well to tuina. Using Chinese medical theory, eh will help you formulate simple therapeutic massage treatment plans for your patients. Participants will perform tuina techniques on partners based on their personally developed treatments plans.
If the tuina didn't relax you by the end of the day, Dr. Shipe will send you off with rechaged Qi after the last hour of the seminar by keading the class in classical Chinese Ba Duan Jin Qigong. This is a full day of education and fun.
