Connectivology: Kinesiology of the Connective Tissue (4 days)

In recent decades, the Connective Tissue, from a simple fabric of connection, cohesion and protection, is gaining more and more importance. In fact, numerous scientists are devoting themselves to its study and are discovering its importance. Thanks to the work of Prof. Pishinger, there is now a much deeper level of understanding of the connective tissue and collagen: that of the Extra Cellular Matrix and of the “Ground Regulation”. That is, all the mechanisms of self-regulation and maintenance of homeostasis take place at the level of this structure. Precisely for this reason it was subsequently called the Living Matrix.

In this course, this very modern topic will be addressed from a very ancient point of view: from that of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).  Although, with different terminology. The concept of Connective Tissue was already treated hundreds of years ago by TCM with the concepts of Luo Meridians and Tendino-Muscular Meridians, Skin Areas and Zonal Points. Much time will be dedicated to the study of the Tendino-Muscular Meridians, which in TCM are called the Muscle Meridians and this will allow us to discover new Muscle-Meridian relationships and to have new tools to balance the muscles.

The Connective Tissue is also where the body stores memories of physical and emotional traumas, records emotions and past experiences.  By releasing the Connective Tissue, our physical, emotional and energetic potentials will be freed from past blocks. As we can talk about Psycho-Somatic disorders (that is, how emotional experiences affect physical aspects), we can also talk about Somato-Psychic aspects (how physical experiences can affect emotional aspects). By treating the Connective Tissue we can get rid of memories of physical or emotional events. To do this, we’ll use the Subconscious Trauma Release and the Hua Tuo points.

This course is an excellent opportunity for those who already work with “Connective Tissue” but want to expand their knowledge to include the energetic aspect of the Acupuncture Meridians. It is also an opportunity for those who already deal with the energetic aspects of Traditional Medicine Chinese and want to integrate them with more Western and structural knowledge. This course will help the student be able to make profound improvements on the physical level of their clients, as well as being able to release old emotions recorded in the tissues of the body.
