Overview of the Foundation Course

Throughout the duration of the course, you will learn how to accurately muscle test by moving a limb through a range of movement, feeling for a strong or weak response. Each muscle has an association with a meridian energy flow.

If a muscle response is weak, you will use strengthening techniques taught to improve the muscle response, which also feed through to the associated meridian and organ.

Techniques include:
• Holding neurovascular points on the head to increase blood flow;
• Running the acupuncture meridian flow lines in a positive direction to restore energy flow;
• Placing nutrition on the body to identify which nutrition strengthens the muscle;
• Massaging lymphatic points associated with the muscle to increase lymph flow and help remove toxins;
• Recommend dietary and lifestyle changes to improve health and wellbeing.
