Microsoft Word - Reading The Body 3.0.docx

READING THE BODY – CAPTAIN COOK, HAWAII

Margi FlintMarch 18th and 19th 2017Aaahhh…. Paradise! B&B 83-5662 Rock Bottom Road Honaunau, HI 96726 $200 includes lunch

What do your thinning eyebrows mean? Why is there a crease in your earlobe? Each color, line and marking on the face, tongue and nails holds meaning of your internal health. Margi Flint will be explaining and demonstrating diagnostic techniques taught to her by the late William Le Sassier.

This two day seminar will focus on various diagnostic techniques including facial signs, tissue color, elimination analysis, signs of hot, cold, damp and dry conditions. In knowing what the body has to say, we can learn how to prevent illness before it arrives as well as treating what is here. This seminar will consist of both lecture and hands on learning with ample opportunity for questions to understand what your body is saying to you.

Please email for registration details by clicking the link below:Reserve classes for March 18th and 19th 2017

Reading the Body ~ Bring your face nails and tongue to learn the meaning of each line, color and marking on your body.  Herbs and foods will be mentioned as we cover each organ system.  This will be an interactive class so come without nail polish, makeup and avoid eating foods with colors that change your tongue!

“There is an amazing art to reading the health of a person through the features, lines and colors of the face, tongue and nails. This is helpful both for current health complaints but also for preventative measures. Margi is an expert in this field and will be joining us here in Captain Cook March 18-19 and in Bellingham WA the following weekend to teach on the subject. Come join us!” Leslie Lekos

 

Margi Flint owns and operates EarthSong Herbals, a busy family practice and herb school in Marblehead MA.  Flint is Adjunct Professor at Pacific Rim College BC, Tufts University School of Medicine, North Shore Community, Massachusetts College of Pharmacology, and Bastyr University.
