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

  • 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 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.
