This 24-hour CEU course provides the foundation in Chinese Medicinal theory and skills that can transform your massage work into integrative health care.
According to the Chinese, the Chi body, consisting of 12 Organ Meridians, is the foundation for health and well-being. If the Chi is abundant and balanced coursing through these Meridians, there is potential for vital health and wellness. If the Chi body is deficient or imbalanced, there is ground for debility or dis-ease. Meridian Acupressure will provide you with the theory and skills to use Chinese Medicine in your massage practice to bring more greater health, physically, mentally and emotionally, to your clients.
In Chinese Meridian Acupressure, you will:
- Learn the theory, locations and pathways of the 12 Organ Meridians used in Chinese Acupressure
- Delve into the physical, emotional and spiritual aspect of the Meridians
- Discover the Source points and several potent points along the Meridians
- Explore the indications for use of each point
- Learn Jin Shin Acupressure sequences to balance each of the Meridians

About your Instructor,
National Certification Board in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork Approved CEU Provider
With a passion for learning, Raizelah was certified in Integrative Massage in 1991, and never stopped taking classes in the healing arts. She later trained and certified in Eastern Massage and Acupressure, Jin Shin Jyutsu, Chinese and Western Herbology, Aroma Acupoint Therapy and Yoga instruction.
Most naturally, Raizelah began to weave together the modalities she studied, in her work, developing a unique style of Integrative Health Care that combines hands-on Meridian Massage and Aroma Acutouch Therapy, and home care regimes of essential oils, herbs and yoga poses to address client complaints. Her hands-on work was informed by her own practices in mindfulness and embodiment, the foundational ground for her work and life.
Early in Raizelah’s career, she discovered her love for teaching. She first started teaching massage in 1998, at Twin Lakes School of the Healing Arts in Santa Cruz, and followed that with 15 years as a core instructor at the Sebastopol Massage School. Concurrently, Raizelah developed and trained massage therapists in continuing education in spa settings. Her integrative approach was also the foundation of a series of wellness workshops she has offered over the past 15 years.
In 2020, Raizelah took a professional leap to fulfill her dream of opening a massage school. Open Pathways Institute for Integrative Massage is the fulfillment of this dream. Her passion is to support Massage Therapists who envision expanding into Integrative Health Care, weavers of hands-on healing with Eastern massage, Acupressure and aromatherapy, all informed by the principles of Chinese Medicine.
