Extraordinary Vessels Sunday Series with Barbara Blanchard
Sunday, February 11, 2018
The Extraordinary Vessels are a unique group of special channels with broad influence on the whole body and psychoemotional health of the individual. The Extraordinary Vessels are said to evolve from the “uterus” or deepest source of Qi. Learn the connections that the Extra Vessels have between the “uterus” and Heart. Review aspects of women’s health including menses, reproduction and menopause. This workshop will look closely at Painful Menses. Review the Four Phases of menses and the specific TCM patterns of symptoms for each phase. Understand the importance of the Zang Fu and the Extra Vessels in the woman’s menstrual cycle. Consider the different Extra Vessels best suited for specific treatments. Practice one Esoteric Acupressure Sequence for treating a physiological woman’s issue while balancing the emotions.
This course covers the following:

- Zang Fu that play a part in menses
