March 2023 Cruise Classes:

Keynote: Improve Digestion and Feel Better From Head to Toe

Heartburn, bloating, gas, nausea, and stomach pain are acute, common problems that can be greatly abated. Even overeating, which is common, can be resolved. Good digestion, where the stomach and the spleen-pancreas are the center of body energies, can determine the wellness of all other organs. You will learn some essential insights from Oriental Medicine to improve your understanding of these problems and therefore, how to change them. How we eat, when we eat, and what we eat are the keys to improving digestion. You will also learn important acupressure points to tonify your digestive powers.


Strengthening Elimination for Clear Body and Mind

What goes in, must come out. Otherwise, it will accumulate (not so good!). We will explore the body’s ways of elimination through bowels, kidney/bladder, skin, and lungs. The more efficiently these organs function, the less toxicity and weakness can occur. As we age, these systems often become weaker with a higher potential for chronic problems and diseases. We will explore which foods and drinks help or harm, how to breathe better, and identify some useful acupressure points.


Women’s Wellness After Menopause

Postmenopause can be a blessed age, but often becomes a dangerous time for cancers, osteoporosis, weight gain, mood swings, and self-image worries. How to reduce the chances of these, and improve your self-healing powers, is the focus of this talk. Women live longer because they are inherently stronger than men, which Michael will explain. Getting the improvement you want without hormones or mega vitamins can empower your wellbeing. You will learn the underlying causes for these problems and the keys to changing them with oriental healing. Even if you have aging issues, healing and renewed vitality can be achieved.

Individual Consultations and/or Workshops Available:

Macrobiotic Consultation

A personal consultation will give you insights to the underlying imbalances of your health problems and allow for specific dietary recommendations to put you on the road to deeper healing. You will need to fill out a history form prior to the session. Information on this form helps Michael tune in more quickly to you and your life.

Michael uses pulse diagnosis along with tongue and visual appearances (face, eyes, ears, hands, and feet) to make an exact assessment of your organ-energy imbalances. From this, he will focus on the best food choices, food combinations, and cooking styles to support your healing. Further, he will give you important acupressure points, possible external applications, and insights into emotional components that are involved. You will receive a personalized Dietary Booklet and a 52-page packet of supportive materials including shopping tips, recipes, and other resources.

$350/person, 90 minutes


Group Consultation Using Oriental Medicine Diagnosis

This is a unique opportunity to gain insight into your specific condition and health concerns. At the same time, it is a great study session with the opportunity for you to see how an experienced macrobiotic counselor and acupuncturist uses traditional Oriental medicine’s methods of diagnosis to make specific recommendations for each person. Food, remedies, and lifestyle will be addressed for each participant. Each person will complete a one-page health history form that Michael will review prior to the session. Your most relevant questions will be answered. Please note that people who have more serious health concerns should consider a private, one-on-one consultation for the most personalized advice and attention.

Space limited to 15 participants
$175/person, 2 ½ hours
