Advanced 5 Element 4 Needle Technique with Abdominal Palpation

This course builds on the tools and treatments of Level I.  It uses  the principles of Five Element interactions and abdominal palpation to create 24 additional patterns of tonifying both the Yin and Yang of all 12 main channels.  Abdominal Palpation is revisited with more hands on practice and more channels patterns than were seen in the basic course. A special emphasis is put on treating emotional trauma and psycho-emotional imbalances.
