He came across applied kinesiology (AK) in 1980 and was immediately struck by its eclectic and comprehensive approach since it encompassed nutrition, structural corrections, meridian and emotional treatments. He has continued his studies and now regularly teaches in the UK and Ireland. He is a member of the International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK) He is one of the few acupuncturists in the UK to combine acupuncture and AK. He has taught the diaphragm course to acupuncturists on several occasions.

He studied nutrition and dietary therapy in the 1980's, initially with Dr Stephen Davies and later with Dr Lawrence  Plaskett. 

The Diaphragm: dynamo of the meridians

**Earlybird: book and pay by 17 Sept 2020, only £70  **

Marek Urbanowicz has been an acupuncturist since 1979.  He qualified at the College of Traditional Acupuncture and studied with J.R Worsley until 1987, obtaining a BAc and MAc. Prior to studying acupuncture he trained in shiatsu, massage and reflexology. 

He has studied Japanese traditions since 1998. He has trained in the UK, Holland, the U.S, Spain and Japan. In 2014 he undertook an MA in Voice Studies at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, his thesis being on the diaphragm. He is currently enrolled in a four year training to become a Feldenkrais teacher.

The diaphragm is possibly the most important and yet often neglected muscle in the body. It is the piston that energizes the whole meridian system. 

In this seminar you will learn how to assess the diaphragm’s function through visual diagnosis, palpation, rib expansion and breath holding time. 

We will review the diaphragm’s anatomy and what happens when breathing is impaired, especially during stress.

The emphasis is on being able to assess, diagnose and learn simple corrective techniques for diaphragm dysfunction using acupuncture points, applied kinesiology reflexes and breathing exercises.
