Continuing Education in Energy Healing for Bodywork Professionals (NCBTMB)
Regardless of the healing modalities you use, there is a way to bring the world of energy and consciousness into your touchwork. These courses are for bodyworkers who want to apply energetic principles and practices to their work. Conversely, it is a course for practitioners of subtle energetic disciplines who wish to incorporate the physical body into their work. Participants will work in a non-modality-bound way with both the physical structure and the energy field of their treatment partners. This class is about integrating energywork and bodywork practices into what can be called “energy-active bodywork.”
This is a course series for bodyworkers who want to blend energetic principles and practices with their bodywork practice. Participants will work in a non-modality-bound way with both the physical structure and the energy field of their treatment partners.
I am a bodyworker myself, but I was involved with energywork practice long before I became a craniosacral and massage therapist. In these courses, I draw on over 25 years of experience in what I have come to call "energy-active bodywork."

"Students of bodywork will not stop needing solid fundamentals of anatomy and physiology, therapeutic massage and bodywork, business and an ethics of truly skilled healing relationship. But those who are attracted to energy-oriented bodywork and therapy are in need of an education that prepares them for spiritual process as well. This is because the tools of energywork are derived from age-old spiritual practices, the ancient technology of consciousness, aimed toward nothing less than receiving what Joseph Campbell called "the inexhaustible energies of the cosmos," something which has implications far grander than even our contemporary notions of 'optimum health.'"
