Elemental Manual Meridian Theory
and Techniques (EMMT)

This is our curriculum designed around a Five Element perspective that is an evolution of classical Five Element theory from the East Asian traditions. A series of five specific classes will illustrate the detailed anatomy and physiology of each element, as well as clinical applications in orthopedic injury, emotional transformation, and conditions of chronic pain and inflammation. The EMMT curriculum is a blend of many modalities and emphasizes the nexus between logical and realistic clinical therapy for those recovering from physical or emotional stress and trauma, or injury.  Most clients treated with the EMMT techniques, achieve 80-100% improvement of the primary issue within 1-5 sessions.
