Body-Reading is based on the Traditional Eastern Yin/Yang and 5 Element Models. This course teaches the Massage Therapist how to initiate a health assessment for their clients. It focuses on the development of the student’s intuition. Areas of the body to be ‘read’ include: the face, back, abdomen and body structure. This modality also looks at clients’ birth dates, mannerisms, attitudes, and hands.
Body reading facilitates the client’s understanding of themselves and deepens their vitality in health, relationships, and their life’s journey. Physical (food and breathing exercises), Emotional (using feelings for healing) and Spiritual (subconscious healing) methods are all integrated in this course. Intuitive applications are developed with the various maps presented. The Practitioner’s use of these body reading maps can help guide clients toward the necessary steps to fulfill their greatest potential.
Dynamic Cupping’s is centuries old, dating back to ancient Egyptian, African and Asian cultures. It uses suction to increase circulation and soften myo-facial and muscular structures of the body.

The course covers the basics, the benefits, and specific contraindications of this modality. Students learn a dynamic cupping protocol to add to existing body work sessions or use as a stand-alone treatment plan.
