Unique and Exciting Exploration of your chakras and aura

            EXPLORING CHAKRAS-Nov.12 & 13 9AM-4PM, Lafayette, La.

                     $225 includes 2 aura photos and lunch-12 CE hours

When our chakras (energy centers) are in balance, we function at a much higher rate of health and well being.  An exploration of the energy field will assist in learning about any imbalances that may contribute to problems in our lives and how we can return to a state of balance.

This knowledge is valuable in understanding the mind, body connection with our families, our clients and our selves. An energetic technique using light touch will be learned during this 2day class.

Aura photos will be taken before the class starts and after having energy work done the second day.  Amazing transformations!

This class will give you a toolkit of suggestions, techniques and practices that will give you a deeper, and richer, relationship to life. 

                           Personal transformations are possible!

I'm still a student, but, I would enjoy being a part of this group in order to surround myself with quality people who are serious about their work as massage therapists. I want to grow in my skill and learn as much as I can and contribute as much as I can.

CE classes for La. Massage Therapists, approved provider. Energetic Trauma Release Workshop, 6 hours

This class is designed to increase your knowledge regarding working compassionately and effectively with the effects of trauma/chronic stress in your practice. Learn how secondary trauma affects those dealing with trauma and abuse with others.

Learn about “triggers” that affect a person after the event or trauma is over and how to release them, replacing fear motivated behavior with a sense of calm.

When someone experiences emotional or physical trauma, illness, chronic stress, surgery, suppressed or negative feelings, this causes “energy blocks” in the body, affecting our health and well being.

Oct.9, Nov.6, Dec.11, Jan.22., Lafayette, La. contact Sue @ 337 232-4799 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 337 232-4799 end_of_the_skype_highlighting for more information or email; $125 investment or $195 with Mind, Body Self Care Strategies. 6 hours

Mind, body self care strategies: 6 hours, Oct.16, Nov.7, Dec.12, Jan. 23-$125 investment or $195 if taken with Energetic Trauma Release, Lafayette, La.
As caregivers we tend to take care of others,but it's important that we learn how to relax, what our stressors are and take care of ourself. In this class, we will learn relaxation techniques, mind, body spirit assessment, meditation, and many more ways to avoid burnout.

Hi Group,
Just want to let everyone know about my new massage DVD on forearm massage. The DVD is 74 minutes and beautifully shot. It teaches how to give a full body massage using the forearms of the primary massage tool. It also teaches simple Chi Gong exercises for better body mechanics. Please visit my website at to watch a preview.
Many thanks,

Does anyone feel that there is a division between massage therapists that work in spas or in more of a clinical setting? I think this division does exist and divides our industry. If this is the case do you think this is a problem?

Thank you for the invite to this group Bruce. I look forward to some real quality conversations in here.
