Speaker(s) : Sandra HillSandra is a Chinese medicine practitioner, writer and teacher with a particular interest in Classical Chinese texts and yang sheng. After completing an MA in Fine Art, Sandra Hill lived in Japan for 3 years where she studied tai ji, qi gong and shiatsu, as well as interning with acupuncturist and researcher Dr Hiroshi Motoyama. On her return to the UK she studied acupuncture at the International College of Oriental Medicine, where she later taught for many years. Sandra studied the classical Chinese medical and philosophical texts with French sinologists Claude Larre and Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée, and co-founded Monkey Press in order to make their work accessible to an English-speaking audience. She co-authored A Guide to Acupuncture with Peter Firebrace, and they later established the Orientation clinic and teaching centre in London. Sandra is the author of Reclaiming the Wisdom of the Body, Oriental Paths to Health and Chinese Medicine from the Classics: a beginner’s guide. While maintaining the hands-on practice she developed while studying in Japan, her teaching is inspired by the philosophy of health found within the classical texts.Rosey GrandageRosey is a physiotherapist and Chinese medicine practitioner, who has a particular interest in tuina and qi gong. She founded the Qi Gong Tuina Diploma at University of Westminster in 1999 and has continued to develop the programme and teach qi gong tuina since then. Her knowledge of China, Chinese philosophy and literature came, originally, from a degree in International History and Politics. Her focus on Chinese medicine, tuina and qi gong grew from several years studying in China. She lived in Beijing, Tianjin and Urumqi for two years from 1991 – 92, studying at government colleges and as an apprentice. Throughout the 1990s she spent several weeks each year in China furthering her studies and practice. In addition to qi gong and tuina, she is interested in the concept of yang sheng – nourishing life, and this plays a central role in her teaching and practice. Together with Sandra Hill, she has developed a teaching programme which is rooted in a knowledge of the classical Chinese texts and a deep understanding of qi.

Event Details

Other information

The Tuina Intensive Course 1 will focus on the treatment of External Musculoskeletal Conditions. The Tuina Intensive Course 2 will explore the use of Tuina for the treatment of Internal Conditions affecting the zang fu. Each day we explore a different zang fu from the perspective of its related element and then take this theoretical knowledge into practical techniques for diagnosis and treatment. The emphasis is on quiet, deep, focused work, to understand the movement of qi in balance and imbalance. We use cases which are of interest to the participants and discuss practical advice for patients, including diet and qi gong. Why Learn Tuina? First and foremost because it gives you the perfect complement to acupuncture; an ability to work with your hands alongside the needles; to move and nourish qi directly; to understand qi on a deeper level in diagnosis and as it moves and changes during a treatment. It will give you a better understanding of both physical and qi structures; a way to work directly on the muscles and joints and channels and points. A way to work effectively without needles; and last, but not least, patients really like and benefit from it as a treatment.
