Essential Oils & Techniques for the L.Ac. - with Marc Gian
Essential Oils & Techniques for the L.Ac. Essential oils are potent distillations of medicinal herbs and are quickly becoming one of the most popular adjunct modalities used by acupuncturists and massage therapists. They have an immediate effect on the Shen, as well as regulation of the respiratory, digestive, circulatory, and reproductive systems. Within the context of Chinese medicine and Western herbalism, essential oils have been prized for their antimicrobial, antiviral, and antifungal properties as well. Meridian Biologix formulas were designed to assist TCM practitioners in the use of essential oils in practice, as well as providing an easy way to provide clients an option for self-care between treatments. During this workshop, Marc will discuss the importance of using aromatherapy in practice and cover specific applications for the TCM practitioner featuring Meridian Biologix essential oil formulas. We will cover: - The relationship between Essential Oils and Acupuncture Points & Meridians - Classifications and properties of oils for affecting the Shen - The properties and application of Meridian Biologix formulas - Open orifices, Calm Shen, Release Exterior, Transform Dampness, Tonification, and more. - Specific Point combinations for common conditions in use with Meridian Biologix formulas - Approaching difficult cases - Using breath work combined with essential oils Marc J.
