Extraordinary Vessels, Menstruation, Conception and Pregnancy – Suzanne Yates @ Gong Bodywork
Jan 19 @ 9:30 am – Jan 20 @ 5:30 pm
Extraordinary Vessels, Menstruation, Conception and Pregnancy - Suzanne Yates @ Gong Bodywork

Open to Shiatsu Practitioners

Learn the importance of the Extraordinary Vessels for female clients: understand the changes in the menstrual cycle and key changes in pregnancy .

You may or may not be working with women trying to conceive and pregnant women, but you feel that you would like a deeper understanding of how to support women and their families during this potentially challenging yet exciting time. You may even be afraid or unsure of how to work with certain aspects of pregnancy. The most effective way to support conception,  pregnancy, and indeed the whole maternity period is to include work with the Core Four Extraordinary Vessels, not simply Conception and Governing Vessel. This course will help you understand more fully the powerful Extraordinary Vessels.

You will:

  • Understand why the key Extraordinary Vessels of Penetrating Vessel (Sea of Blood) and Girdle Vessel are so fundamental to menstruation, conception and pregnancy
  • Learn key changes during the menstrual cycle and pregnancy
  • Learn positioning issues for pregnancy
  • Understand more about your own connection to the menstrual cycle and pregnancy
  • Learn how to work sensitively and effectively with low risk women in the second and third trimester
