Open to licensed massage therapists and certain other licensed healthcare professionals.

We are more than just bones and muscle; there is an energetic aspect that animates all of our tissues. When our energies are healthy and balanced, we feel stronger, happier, and better able to handle day-to-day challenges.

This class offers powerful tools for practitioners of any manual modality who desire to increase efficacy and expand their skill set by incorporating energy medicine into their practices.

Class Objectives:

Provide a basic understanding of the premises of energy healing, how it informs and affects us both physically and emotionally as well as offering a powerful vehicle to enhance health.

Present practical, easy-to-use tools to weave energetic healing into any modality to increase effectiveness.

All subjects will move between theoretic explanation, demonstration of the techniques and practice time.

Discussion of the physical ramifications of specific energetic imbalances (i.e., Under-energy = flaccidity, weakness, slowed circulation; Over-energy = tightness, pain, inflammation).

Pain Management: Break the pain cycle with effective methods to address general and localized pain.

Self-care for clients: Teach clients highly effective methods for managing their own pain, stress, and injuries.

Basics of Applied Kinesiology:  Easy-to-learn muscle-testing techniques for assessing energetic imbalance. This helps to target the specific energetic factors in an individual’s pain or disability.

Neurolymphatic points: Reflex points that stimulate lymph flow to any compromised area.

Neurovascular Points: Reflex points that ease the stress emotions that often accompany pain and injury.

Effective treatment strategies for applying new techniques to common musculoskeletal conditions.
