    I found your courses through Big Three Healing. Do you still offer the online meridian massage certification?
    I am not sure in which order to start the courses.
    Also, it says to pay in euros? Is there a place to pay in $ dollars?

    Looking forward to hearing back you.
    I am massage therapist in Florida.

      Hi Paola,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      At this time I am not offering Certification, but you can still take many of the classes online.
      The order is:
      Guide to Yin and Yang
      Guide to 12 Meridians
      Guide to 5 Elements
      Guide to Organ Systems
      Guide to 60 Points

      The classes are being maintained by my friend Eva who lives in Spain, so the prices are in Euros, I am sorry there is not a place to pay in dollars but hopefully your credit card or paypal will do the exchange for you?

      Here is the link to view and enroll in online classes

      I hope this clarifies things, if not, you can contact me and I will get back to you.

    Can I ask how many visits to Meridian massage classes would you recommend per month?

    • Cindy Black on May 22, 2018 at 8:41 am

      Hi Bella,

      To learn the Meridian Massage Approach, I recommend diving into the class progression that I have developed over the years. These classes are open to anyone interested in expanding their options for self-care and/or clinical practice.

      A practitioner needs to understand the theory behind the 12 meridians and acupressure points in addition to knowing how to contact the points for best results. Chinese medical theory gives us that context, so I have created a series of online courses to teach the relevant theory.

      I offer in-person hands-on classes to deepen and apply the theory learned online.

      As a client, the number of sessions per week or month is dependent on the concerns and circumstances of that individual. The intention of Meridian Massage is to support the return of balance and flow to the body-mind-spirit so that the client can enjoy happiness and vitality in body-mind-spirit. After a few sessions, the client experiences the results of Meridian Massage for themselves. Then they will understand what will be best for them – this work is cooperative endeavor between practitioner and client.

      Sometimes we work together for a few weeks or months – it really depends on the individual.

      Thanks for your question!
      _ Cindy

    I have been following you for a while now and enjoying all that you have to offer. I have your book and it is fabulous!
    I am a certified equine massage therapist and also now in the midst of Tallgrass Institute’s 300 CE hour Equine Acupresssure practitioner course. I have completed the like training in Colorado this month for horses – like you are offering in January.
    I am interested in coming to your course, and am inquiring whether you will allow. I began studying acupressure for myself about 4 years ago and am fascinated. I seek acupuncture routinely and have had great results for a few years. I have also known that I want to work with the horses and, as well, keep paralleling the study with people.
    I desire this training more for my own correlation with the horse acupressure and knowledge, and would LOVE to be part of your program in January. However, having said that, I may decide to continue training to become certified as a massage therapist to do acupressure on people.
    I was in Maryland and now live on Anna Maria Island – and I said when I came here that would love to meet you in person and take part in one of your workshops live.
    Please let me know if you can extend your training to me!

      Hi Marci,
      I am so happy that you are interested in the course! I am very interested in equine massage myself, so I love that we are meeting each other.
      I’d love to have you in the course – I have sent you an email separately, so please keep a look out for that. If you don’t receive that email, please use the contact link at the bottom of this webpage to write to me.
