In this two day class we explore the congruence in the energetic anatomy of Governor Vessel with that of our midline, following the lower reciprocal tension membrane of the duraltube surrounding spinal cord from sacrum to forman magnum, and the upper reciprocal tension membrane of falx cerebri.  

Lecture, anatomy aids, demonstration, and hands on practice will give the student a basis for craniosacral contact that they can integrate into their practice or as a stand alone protocol.

AACC2:  Governor Vessel and Kidney / Bladder Movement and Meridians

We layer with discussion of Midline and Governor vessel with kidney and bladder zangfu (organ) and channel (meridian) in relation to midline and spinal nerve correlations.

We look at the esoteric pairing of acupuncture points as location markers for the 7 main chakras as we work with the spine.
