Continuing Education

Are you looking for a simple, effective way to bring sound therapy into your practice and life? This interactive training covers information about relaxation and stress reduction through the application of pairs of tuning forks held at the ears. These techniques are easy to learn and use, have rapid and repeatable effects (some protocols take only three minutes), and are complementary to any other health care modality. Health practitioners may incorporate into their client treatments, as well as use for self-care. The general public may use these techniques with family members or for benefit to their own health.
Course date: Saturday - Sunday, October 13 & 14
Course times: 8:30 am - 6 pm
Instructor: Arden Wilken (16 PDAs, CEUs).

Continuing Education

Visceral Manipulation palpation skills and techniques will be taught to assist the practitioner in identifying and mobilizing the organ and will learn to identify the different levels of the structures (tissue, capsule, fluid, neural, and blood supply to the organs). Very specific techniques will be taught to mobilize the visceral body on structural, fluidic and electro-magnetic level according to the traditional Osteopathic approach.

This course is excellent for practitioners who are looking to gain tools for those patients who may not be responding to treatment to visceral strains and shears that present as a primary cause. This is also a non-obligatory introduction course that will prepare practitioners for the VM1 course that will be held on November 16 - 28, 2018.

In this seminar explore how your cultural values and biases can affect your interactions with people who are different from you in categories such as race, religion, sexual orientation, physical condition, socio-economic status and gender. Appropriate for any health practitioner.
