Conception Vessel & Hara

16-18 June & 7-9 July  Nottingham, UK

The governing vessel (GV) and the conception vessel (CV) begin to flow at the time of conception and form the most primitive part of the energy system or “primary information system”. Together they form the Central Channel, central to Daoist and other ancient energy healing practices.

The flow of these channels can become disrupted or compressed through stress, accumulating over a period of time as a web of misinformation and a range of symptoms – physical, emotional, mental, spiritual.  Shiatsu Shin Tai offers a  highly effective protocol of energy bodywork for re-establishing flow in this system.

Kindy Teaching (16)

The Conception Vessel & Hara course teaches an approach to the treatment of the conception vessel via the hara. In oriental philosophy the Hara (abdomen) is considered to represent a microcosm of the whole person – physical, mental. emotional and their life situation. In the ShinTai approach the Hara and hip structure is considered to be a  manifestation of the Conception Vessel. So treating this area of the body improves the flow of Life Force through the Conception Vessel. Hara treatment offers one of the most effective tools for the practitioner. In recent years, with so much emphasis on Hara diagnosis, there has been a danger that the art of Hara treatment (Ampuku) has been overlooked.

Participants in this workshop will be able to add a truly powerful healing modality to their professional protocol.

The hips are the structural aspect of the hara. Working with the hips and Hara can benefit digestive,  hormonal, nervous and circulatory problems, as well as reproductive and sexual function for women and men. This course teaches specific evaluation and treatment to align and mobilise the hip joints.  A healthy hara/conception vessel flow is vital for a person’s physical well-being, as well as their ability to manifest dreams, images, and intentions into their life reality.
