Practitioner Training

Retreat, Release and Learn...

Are you looking for new skills to expand your expertise as a therapist?

Are you thinking about leaving your current job and becoming a therapist?

Do you want to get to the root cause of client problems quicker?

Are you interested in Traditional Chinese Medicine?

Are you intrigued to learn more about working with energy and doing less invasive and physical treatments?

Are you fed up of set routines and ready to listen to what the body needs?

Do you want to learn how to notice blocked energy, ask the body to release it and know when it has released?

Do you feel like you want to be able to help clients release on an emotional level when necessary?

Are you looking for CPD, feeling like you have done lots of training but haven't found the missing piece for you and still want to be able to offer your clients more?

Are you looking for a professional community that offers supportive and nurturing support for you and your business, with opportunities for more CPD, to meet up, share ideas, swap treatments and catch up?

If the answer is Yes...Gentle Release Therapy could be just what you are looking for!

The Practitioner Training course includes the following:

  • Working with clients and energy

  • Working Virtually

  • Basic principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine Theory

  • Energy work on the chest and abdomen

  • Cranial release

  • Endocrine release

  • Lymphatic release

  • Emotional trauma clearing

  • Paperwork (Consultation, Health & Safety, Contraindications etc)

The course has been designed so that you lead your own learning with the theory work, some of which will need to be done prior to the 3 1/4 day intensive practical course where you will learn all the techniques and experience them for yourself. To become a fully qualified practitioner you will need to pass practical and written exams, submit case studies and complete a small project. More details can be found in the course prospectus. The exams aren't something to be scared of, it will be a supportive environment, but for accreditation we need to assess your ability as a therapist.

Virtual Practitioner

Training Retreat

Monday 13th June - Friday 17th June 9.30am to 2.30pm Everyday

Join us at the Live on Zoom, for 3 1/4 days of intensive practical training and the chance to retreat and release at home. Spread over 5 days to fit in with school hours. We had been reluctant to offer our training online, but our virtual treatments over lockdown have been so useful for our clients it seemed now is the time to also offer our retreats online. The feedback for the Virtual Practitioner Retreats has been fantastic.  The courses will still be small and personal with no more than 12 students per course.

We will send you a course pack prior to the course including notes and handouts. You need to have somewhere quiet and private where you can attend the course via zoom (so you will also need good internet access), the course programme will be exactly the same as it is in person which is generally, demonstration of the technique, treatment swap to practice, feedback experiences to the group and repeat, etc.

Giving you the unique opportunity to retreat, release and learn in the comfort of your own home. You will receive some TLC and connection with like minded people, along with a new therapy to add to your practice, which will give you the opportunity to offer Gentle Release Therapy Treatments in person and virtually. 

The price is £450 for existing therapists or healthcare providers, and £550 for those with no prior training. The training has been accredited by FHT, AOR, Thinktree and CThA.
