Starts MARCH 18 and SEPTEMBER 9, 2018

 

This is not just a program to teach you how to rub knots out of muscles. Students are taught to do this work in a holistic way, understanding that we are working with a whole human being and what we do affects all aspects, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Students work on themselves to become clear channels for the life energy to move through them by learning how to ground, center and connect with clarity with themselves and with all they touch.
