• Integrating Chakras Into Your Practice

  • Class Open To:

    Licensed massage therapists, acupuncturists, physical therapists, occupational therapists and certain other licensed healthcare professionals.

  • Details:


    In this one-day intensive, you will learn the Polarity Charka Balancing session. It is a complete session within itself and can easily be integrated into your bodywork, massage therapy or touch oriented practice.

    Chakra Balancing is a simple yet effective treatment for clients who are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or chronically 'out of balance' in their lives. Incorporating Chakra balancing into your massage therapy practice can help your clients settle into a deep relaxation and core organization that will support them as they leave. There are no contraindications for this treatment, it is easy to offer at health fairs and can be adapted to chair massage settings.

    You will learn a chakra meditation technique that will help you feel and sense into your own Chakras. You will learn what Chakras are, how they influence the physical body through the nervous and endocrine system and how to help your clients understand how their lives and lifestyle choices affect their health and well being.

    You will:

    • Receive an introduction/refresher to Polarity Therapy’s core concepts
    • Practice Chakra Meditation
    • Learn about Chakras from an Ayurvedic perspective
    • Experience sensing into the Chakras on yourself and with a partner
    • Learn the Chakra Balancing Session protocol
    • Plenty of hands on practice
