Intro to Energy Work
Uses various approaches in working with the chi, or energy of the sensory body, in order to help restore health and vitality to the system.
Self-Care for the Client -- practiced on the therapist
Learn nurturing self-care for your clients such as exercises, stretching, muscle releases, holding points for stress relief, as well as other self-care techniques. These techniques will be practiced in class on oneself and each other.
This ancient method of healing teaches us to find various points on the feet and hands that affect corresponding parts of the whole body in order to strengthen areas of weakness or discomfort.
Learn to assess various regions of the body for strength and weakness and to enhance and rebalance energy flow. We will use simple techniques and tools such as sound and material objects as well as touch and sensing the energy field.
