Colour Acupuncture Diploma course
Colour acupuncture is a growing field of light therapy that provides an alternative to invasive traditional acupuncture. The penetrating properties of light, work without the aid of needles and provides an effective and subtle form of complementary treatment. Beams of coloured light can be channelled through the healer’s hands using acupressure or a crystal light torch, which focuses a beam of coloured light along the meridians, acupuncture point or part of the body.
This distance learning course is suitable for anyone who wishes to use the powerful but non intrusive combination of colour and acupuncture in their healing practise. Colour acupuncture students will concentrate on major acupuncture points and other points in the head and upper body, as well as the hands and feet. Please note this is not a traditional acupuncture course but one which draws together the philosophy of traditional Chinese medicines with current thought and methods including those of Dr Fritz Popp, Peter Mandel, Theo Gimbel and Dr Christine Page. The colour acupressure treatments are useful to incorporate and extend other forms of complementary therapy.
