Ohashi Method™ – Muscle Meridian Sedation, Vol. 1 – 2 – 3
Ohashi Method™ - Muscle Meridian Sedation, Vol. 1 When the condition of a muscle and a meridian is “hyper,” which means there is too much energy, stiffness and pain can occur in that area of the body. Relieving and decreasing this energy is what Ohashi calls “muscle sedation.” When your client has structural problems, such as lower back pain, it is not always easy to assess the source of the problem. In this Ohashi Method™ DVD, Ohashi shows how to diagnose your client’s problem, how to enhance or decrease energy/strength from a muscle group, how to apply the necessary degree of muscle stimulation, and many advanced treatment techniques. Using muscle meridian sedation can help you create a more efficient treatment and shorten the time it takes to alleviate a problem.
