Course Structure
  1. Human Anatomy

This module explains how basic human skeletal and muscular systems work as a means to gain fundamental knowledge of massage and meridian manipulation principles. Since meridians cannot be seen by our naked eye, and each person’s body build is different, we need the help of bones and muscles to locate meridians and acupoints accurately.

  1. Basic of TCM

This module covers the essentials of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is a comprehensive study of the human body internal organs, Yin-Yang and five elements, and fine blood fluid contents. It also aims to shed understanding on how the Yin-Yang and five elements are related to our internal organs and which internal organ is overworked or damaged when certain symptoms appear in the body

  1. TCM Meridian Studies

This module dwells on the meridian theory, and helps students to be familiarised with the twelve meridians distributed throughout the body, connecting the various organs

  1. TCM Scrapping and Cupping

Students will learn cupping and scraping principles in this module. Cupping, as a manipulation technique, can even out the flow between meridian points, provide “warmth” for casual pathogenic cold, bring about telangiectasia, local congestion, promoting blood circulation, opening sweat pores to enable pathogen to be expelled out. Scraping effectuates blood circulation, dredges meridians, recuperates organs, and promotes detoxification. Scraping and cupping is simple and effective in regulating blood flow in the meridian, adjusting the internal organs function, attaining treatment purpose.
