The Meridian Families On-line Course

By the end of the course you will:

  • Understand the bigger picture of the meridian system
  • Possess an expanded understanding of the qualities of Qi
  • Recognize the relationships between time frames and energy patterns
  • Feel and understand the qualities of each meridian family through embodiment practices
  • Begin to overcome the habit of seeing a person primarily in terms of pathology and diagnosis and move towards recognising potential through the economics of energy patterning.


What was also brilliant was connecting points, for example Bl & SI points. I can definitely use that for teaching when tracing the meridians in class. Also, thank you for the in-depth information about the points.


Most beneficial so far has been how to move from concept and theory into practice - very useful information, that is applicable in the treatment room right off the bat!


I'm loving it, learning a lot of stuff, learning to look at things that I know from a different angle and seeing a wider picture and a deeper meaning. It is stirring my curiosity about so many things and inspiring me to learn more.

Learning about the nodal zones has opened a new window in my practice, both personal and with my clients - such a quick, easy and meaningful way to connect with the energy of a greater meridian without having to go through the entire channels when time is short.

Most useful for professional development are the Embodiment practices and the Kata, the Acupoint self-treatments.


It makes so much sense while doing Shiatsu - it keeps popping up all the time in my practice now. Or I shall say, my practice is now viewed from the meridian families perspective - super interesting. Thanks, very grateful.

The visual aspect is very important for my understanding, so I have printed the materials from the platform to use in my practice. I come back to them regularly.

It’s reacting on every level, the conceptual, the kata, the body, mind, soul, everywhere. The course is intense - it has a very powerful effect; the mind has no time to get involved because it’s so dense and multi-dimensional. It just happens.
