Question: and what would therapists do with these saliva samples?
Comment by Stephen Jeffrey on July 14, 2011 at 10:57am

Dr Tiffany Field gave an excellent presentation at the recent world massage conference, in which she highlighted the ease of obtaining results via the taking of saliva samples (as against blood urine ). How's about we use some foundation money to develope some saliva sample kits and demo vids and start getting therapists actively engaged with taking samples from clients???

The touch research institute is struggling will it be allowed to go under.

EXPLORING CHAKRAS-July 23 & 24, 2011, Lafayette, La.

When our chakras (energy centers) are in balance, we function at a much higher rate of health and well being.  An exploration of the energy field will assist in learning about any imbalances that may contribute to problems in our lives and how we can return to a state of balance. This knowledge is valuable in understanding the mind, body connection with ourselves, our families and our clients. Aura photos will be taken during the workshop and information about what the colors mean for you will be available. An energetic technique using light touch will be learned during this class.

CE classes for La. Massage Therapists, approved provider. Energetic Trauma Release Workshop, 6 hours

This class is designed to increase your knowledge regarding working compassionately and effectively with the effects of trauma/chronic stress in your practice. Learn how secondary trauma affects those dealing with trauma and abuse with others.

Learn about “triggers” that affect a person after the event or trauma is over and how to release them, replacing fear motivated behavior with a sense of calm.

When someone experiences emotional or physical trauma, illness, chronic stress, surgery, suppressed or negative feelings, this causes “energy blocks” in the body, affecting our health and well being.

Oct.9, Nov.6, Dec.11, Jan.22., Lafayette, La. contact Sue @ 337 232-4799 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 337 232-4799 end_of_the_skype_highlighting for more information or email; $125 investment or $195 with Mind, Body Self Care Strategies. 6 hours

Mind, body self care strategies: 6 hours, Oct.16, Nov.7, Dec.12, Jan. 23-$125 investment or $195 if taken with Energetic Trauma Release, Lafayette, La.
As caregivers we tend to take care of others,but it's important that we learn how to relax, what our stressors are and take care of ourself. In this class, we will learn relaxation techniques, mind, body spirit assessment, meditation, and many more ways to avoid burnout.
