with Dr. John Beaulieu
This is an integrative medicine class that is open to body workers, cranial therapists, energy workers, sound healers and verbal counselors who are interested in integrating touch, sound, and intuitive counseling. Topics will include body harmonics and wave palpation methods leading to an understanding of still point and still point induction methods. We will discuss the dynamics of waves and energy fields and how they form the physical body in order to understand how to therapeutically apply different touch and sonic healing methods.
Special emphasis will be given to cranial mechanics related to harmonic cranial dynamics. During class we will learn how to intuitively sense and palpate harmonic waves as they move through the body. Once a wave evaluation is established we will learn to apply therapeutic modalities to neutralize wave dissonance. These modalities will include somatic touch dialoging, tuning forks, crystal resonance, and cranial compression methods. We will learn how to induce a still point, identify the seven levels of a still point, and enter into a still point using these healing methods to effect therapeutic change.
Essential Oil Therapy
Aroma therapy is the art and science of using essential oils, the aromatic extracts of plants and flowers, for health and well being.
Pure essential oils actually detoxify and help restore cellular balance in our bodies.
Clinical research has shown that essential oils can create an environment in which disease, bacteria, virus, fungus and other microbes cannot live. Therefore many use essential oils to clean, cook, and additionally, have been added to personal care products and nutritional supplements as well.
We offer protocols for administering Essential Oils as a healing modality and strong form of energy medicine using Theraputic Grade Young Living Essential Oils.
Raindrop Technique (8hrs)
RAINDROP technique is a powerful, non-invasive tool for assisting the body in correcting defects in the curvature of the spine. During the years that it has been practiced, it has resolved numerous cases of scoliosis and kyphosis and eliminated the need for back surgery for thousands of people.
Raindrop Technique originated in the 1980s from the research of Dr. Gary Young working with a Lakota medicine man named Wallace Black Elk. “It integrates Vitaflex and massage, utilizing the power of essential oils in bringing the body into structural and electrical alignment.” (from the Essential Oils Desk Reference)
Raindrop Technique uses a sequence of essential oils that are immune enhancing, support the body’s natural defenses, as well as the circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, digestive, nervous, and other body systems.
These oils, which are high in antioxidants, are also mood elevating and antiseptic, creating an unfavorable environment for harmful viruses and bacteria that can hibernate in the body.
Essential oils are known to boost stamina and energy, help you relax, help manage stress and frustration and promote overall health, vitality, and longevity.
The principal single oils used include:
- Thyme (Thymus vulgaris)
- Oregano (Origanum compactum)
- Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens)
- Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens)
- Peppermint (Mentha piperita)
- Basil (Ocimum basilicum)
- Marjoram (Origanum majorana)
The oils are dispensed in little drops from a height of about six inches above the back, which is where Raindrop Technique gets its name. They are then massaged along the spine and back muscles. They are also applied to the feet.
The whole process takes about an hour and may continue to work in the body for up to one week following a Raindrop Session, with possible realignment and bodily adjustment taking place during this time.
“Raindrop Technique is not a cure-all or a magic bullet. A healthy balanced body is the result of a well-rounded program of exercise and proper diet. Health is everything we do, say, hear, see, and eat. The Raindrop Technique is only one tool to help restore balance in the body that will result in good health.” (from the Essential Oils Desk Reference”)
Sound Healing & Consciousness
Sound and Consciousness is an all inclusive course for healers, musicians, and everyone interested in understanding how to use sound and music to improve all aspects of their life. Special emphasis is given to the integration of art and science through an energy medicine healing paradigm.
The theory and skills taught are inclusive and students do not have to have previous musical training. The emphasis throughout the course is on integration of material into all aspects of life and professional healing practices.
Research lectures will translate and integrate the science of music, sound, and healing into understandable terms. Special emphasis will be given to modern stress research and the role music and sound plays in changing distress into positive stress.
The effect of sound on biochemistry and the brain will be related through molecular science to health, disease, and states of euphoria. Dr. Hans Jenny’s ground breaking work on wave phenomena and energy fields will be presented in the context of modern systems science.
Students will learn the artistry of sound and how to use tuning forks, choose different music, and use voice and movement patterns in alignment with modern research to create accountable healing outcomes. Skills learned will include using tuning forks to tune the autonomic nervous system, activate different sound fields in order to creatively adapt to life stressors and stimulate euphoric states to heal addictions.
Students will learn how to use their voice, movement patterns, and different music in order to evaluate and consciously activate different energy patterns in order to creatively adapt to life changes.
