        The Meridian Theory course offers the student an in-depth understanding of how the meridians function within the horse's body. As it was written in the Spiritual Pivot: "The meridians are where the beginners begin and masters end." The more you learn about the meridian system and meridian locations, the better your working knowledge of acupressure.  Greater understanding of meridian functions increases your assessment skills and point selection, making treatments more effective.

        Students will gain specific knowledge of the 12 major meridians and two of the extraordinary vessels, the Governing and Conception vessels. Specifically students will learn the location and flow of each major meridian, the functions and interactions of each meridian and the location and energetics of specific acu-points along each of the major meridians and vessels.

        Meridian Theory Tracing DVD is included as part of this course.
