Health care workers can learn this system of the ancient art of Hands-On Energy Healing in this 4-hour session.

This clinically tested healing art is integrated into many healing modalities as an effective technique to heal the body, mind or spirit with energy.

Treatments are provided in many hospitals and health care systems and offered at wellness and massage centers.
