Asian abdominal techniques are great for introducing the practitioner's hands to the client, incorporating into a Western massage session, or for closing the treatment. These techniques are performed over the client's clothing. Qi connection, assessing areas of the client's abdomen, and palming, finger, and thumb techniques are used to stimulate the client's Qi as well as the intestines, and cause overall stress reduction and muscle relaxation. This course introduces knowledge and helpful techniques that practitioners can easily implement into their treatments
Equipment and supplies: Massage table, hand cleaner, hand towel. Lubricants will not be needed.
