Course Description:

 Advanced Energy Healing Methods as an Adjunct to Massage Therapy

This program is designed for anyone who has a strong interest in learning energy healing techniques. It is also appropriate as the next level of training for those that have taken Energy Diagnostics in the past. These skills are designed to help a therapist with self-healing and balance as well as  minimize the physical demands of the body and are an excellent adjunct for massage therapists. Through meditation, lecture, Professional Supervision, experientials, demos and masterful healing techniques, licensed practitioners dedicated to self-transformation & knowledge will become profoundly adept at understanding and, assessing- energy imbalances, and utilizing new skills to bring optimal health, wellness and fulfillment. This can bring your work to a new level of effectiveness, and create lasting transformation for you and your clients. Because we meet over the course of the school year, you will have a lot of one-on-one support as well as an opportunity to bond with other like-minded professionals, deepen your connection to yourself and your effectiveness with clients.
