Research shows treatment outcomes can improve when patients are involved in the healing process. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the body has four key energy gates. When properly stimulated, these energy gates allow a maximum of Qi, or vital energy, to flow into organ systems and strengthen the body’s self-regulating mechanisms. The Four Energy Gates offers a simple, powerful program for practitioners to help patients activate their healing capabilities so treatment modalities can have even more effect. Nan Lu, OMD, helps participants understand the ancient Five Element framework and how these four master energy gates support the integration of body, mind, and spirit. He demonstrates and teaches how to stimulate these special gates with specific acupressure techniques, discusses the body's responses and reveals how this program can help enhance overall health. Clients report remarkable shifts in their health and well-being, including a reduction in headaches, back pain, sinus issues, shoulder pain, hormonal issues, allergic reactions, digestive issues, stress, IBS, PMS, mood swings, depression, and anxiety.  Once learned, the Four Energy Gates are a great self-healing technique that can be used for life. 


Learning Objectives:

  1. Evaluate the connection between Qi stagnation, meridians, and overall health.
  2. Discuss the significance of each energy gate.
  3. Demonstrate point location and teach techniques to stimulate the Four Energy Gates.
