Holistic Education Courses offered:

Continuing Education (CE) Courses:

Polarity Therapy Training: Based on theory and techniques developed by Dr. Randolph Stone, Polarity Therapy Training is a year long course designed to facilitate optimal health for clients. Polarity Therapy is a natural health care system that works with the Human Energy Field. The client and practitioner work together to address physical, mental and emotional energy blocks in a safe, supportive environment. The energy session includes physical contact points that address patterns in the client’s energy anatomy using light touch, medium compression and gentle rocking motions. The client generally experiences a deep sense of well-being and relaxation during the session. Additionally, relationships to food and eating, exercise, self-awareness and lifestyle may be discussed. Some of the protocols may include balancing the nervous system, addressing digestion, circulatory, respiratory or other physical issues. This therapy is very useful when massage therapy is contraindicated.

 

  1. Introduction to Polarity Therapy:

    Open to all who are interested! Polarity Therapy allows us to come into the present moment and connect deeply with ourselves and others. This gentle yet powerful work balances and heals the body, mind and emotions. To facilitate the free flow of energy, we use diet, exercise, positive thinking and energetic touch. We work with natural reflexes of the body which provide quick and effective relief from pain, tension and stress.Participants learn new ways to take good care of themselves and others. Beginners and experienced practitioners are welcome. Polarity Therapy is especially helpful for bodyworkers and healthcare professionals and anyone embracing transitions in their life. (Energetic Touch Sessions will focus on the opening and closing moves and the Star patterns.)

Reiki Training: Reiki is an ancient form of Natural Healing, which has been re-introduced during the last century by Dr. Mikao Usi from Japan. It is a simple yet powerful method of amplifying Ki, the universal life force energy. Reiki is applied with the hands by an attuned practitioner and addresses all levels of well-being - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. It is highly effective fo rreducing stress, tension and pain and for promoting specific healing. Reiki can help reveal you Self to you and bring you to wholeness and balance.
