Conception & Governing Vessel Meridians: Function vs. Structure

Often called the Master Meridians, we look to the Conception Vessel (CV) to improve function and the Governing Vessel (GV) for improved structure, even though in shiatsu and oriental therapies there is no clear treatment pathway set for these meridians.

In this course you will learn:

  • How these meridians differ from the other energy channels of the body
  • The formation of these meridians at the time of conceptions
  • The more primitive nature of these meridians at the cellular levels
  • How it is at this level that the energy of these two meridians give us life’s basic function and motion

“The Conception and Governing vessels are like midnight and midday, they are the polar axis of the body … there is one source and two branches, one goes to the front and the other to the back of the body … When we try to divide these, we see that yin and yang are inseparable. When we try to see them as one, we see that it is an indivisible whole.” Li Shi-Zhen, 6th-century Chinese acupuncturist/herbalist.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who has studied the Qi meridians of the body or related oriental therapies
  • Anyone wanting to know more about the philosophies that underpin most oriental therapies including RYT, acupuncture, guasha, tuina and martial arts
  • Anyone interested in eastern medical philosophies and oriental therapies

This course forms part of our 10138NAT Advanced Diploma of Remedial Yoga Therapy and HLT52215 Diploma of Shiatsu and Oriental Therapies  accredited courses designed to teach and treat clients in an oriental therapy clinical setting.
