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.
