Academy of Wholistic Manual Medicine


We hope to see you soon at an upcoming massage class!  We are approved to provide continuing education credits by NCBTMB.  Please look at our success stories and join us in November in Lexington, Kentucky!

Core Curriculum!

Section I of II

Muscle, Emotion, and the Autonomics;

Fascia, Thought, and the immune system;

Viscera and Feelings!

November 5-8, 2015!

Learn release at the first two quantum levels and experience the quantum shift in your knowledge and skill as you see how the process of Release! can be facilitated in muscle AND emotion AND the  autonomic nervous system simultaneously!  Experience another quantum shift as you see how the same process of Release! occurs in fascia, thought and the immune system, which automatically allows for the release of all tissues, energies and systems at all lower energy states!  We then apply the same principles to the internal organs.

In Section 2 we continue the journey of quantum shifts and release of stored tensions and energies from  bone and then from the first level of fluid release, the cranial rhythmic impulse.   Advanced courses introduce us to release of the slow wave, the whole wave, and finally source; releasing embryonic energy into the body.




The beauty of Wholistic Manual Medicine is both in the way it is practiced and in the way it is taught. Wholistically!  We start where the student or client is, and lead them to a “quantum” release! to the next level of understanding and functioning. It is pure SCIENCE AND INTUITION.  When  the student grasps the simplest level, the next levels come with a sudden leap of  awareness with the newly gained skill! “The best way to reach the next level is to fully understand the level below.”  We learn muscle then fascia then bone then fluids with their related aspect of the mind and associated homeostatic/self healing system!

Wholistic Manual Medicine is the ability to use our hands to evaluate and treat the whole person; body, mind, and spirit.  It is the study of the interrelationship and interdependence of structure and function.  The body is a living record of its history, good and bad, functional and dysfunctional. With our hands we can find the “imprint” of traumas, (being the tightening of the tissues),  and facilitate its release, which allows for the self healing mechanisms to take over. The body then heals itself.  Wholistic Manual Medicine is founded in the profound acknowledgment of the body’s tremendous inherent ability to heal.

We learn to evaluate and treat the whole being.

Both structure (body, the anatomy) and function ( mind, behavior and metabolism).  A sixty second screen tells us where to look closer in the body and whether or not function and therefore emotional mental or spiritual factors are key.  We learn to “scan” the areas of interest discovered in our 60 second screen to find the key, or central area of hardness that requires release!

We look for asymmetries of position, motion, and pressure. We then balance these pressures to stimulate a body response which alters, in fact exaggerates these asymmetries to a logical end point, which is known as a ( relative) “still point”.  As we hold these asymmetries in the exact fashion and follow the changes, the release suddenly occurs, the tissues soften, and the breath comes in.

Structure of the Courses

CORE CURRICULUM: The Wholistic Manual Medicine (WMM) Core Curriculum is taught in either four weekend classes or two-four day sections. We start with the basic approach to evaluation and the process of release, and then learn to apply these to muscle, then fascia, then bone and finally the cranium. Throughout the course, the student is provided direct and simple information that is understandable and immediately applied in lab for concrete results and reinforcement of principles.

Each class teaches proficiency in the evaluation and treatment of specific tissues, their corresponding aspects of mind and the body’s self-healing homeostatic systems. The simplest tissues are covered first and more complex ones follow, with each class serving as a prerequisite for the next. Once the basic level is grasped, successive “levels” are gained in “quantum leaps”.  Once finished, participants will be able to evaluate and treat the whole person.

ADVANCED CLASSES: These are intended for graduates of the core curriculum and deepens ones understanding of the basic levels and introduce the student to the next higher levels of release: Advanced Cranial I-III (Slow wave, Whole wave, Source), Advanced Aqua Healing I-IX, Putting It All Together, Jumping levels, Upper and Lower Extremities. 

REVIEW CLASSES: These classes are intended for students who previously attended any of the above classes and are looking to deepen their skills and refresh their memory of key concepts.

INTRODUCTORY CLASSES: These are available to all students and are both an introduction to Wholistic Manual Medicine and offer unique insights and tools for the manual practitioner: Introduction to Wholistic Manual Medicine, Tools for the Immune System, Ethics, Freedom From fear and, Resonance Procedures, create your own technique, clinic days.

Any class can be repeated, and because each class is taught wholisticly, the student will gain insights, skills, and likely jump levels in their understanding and practice of Wholistic Manual Medicine

CU’S: Advance Aqua 6 CU’S.    Day classes 7 CU’S per day.    4 Day Sections 28 CU’S

Quantum healing, Quantum learning!

The fastest route to mastery of the “next level”, is mastery of the level below.

When you “know” the behavior of muscle and emotion, then you will begin to see the “behavior” or responses of the fascia and “thought” and be able to “leap” to the next level of awareness, function and release!

The Levels of release as related to Wholistic Manual Medicine include, in ascending order:

The three physical colloidal states:

1. Muscle and Emotion, associated with homeostasis (self healing) via the autonomic nervous system.

2. Fascia and Thought, associated with homeostasis (self healing) via the immune system.

3. Bone and Spirit, associated with homeostasis (self healing) via the endocrine system.

The three non colloidal  fluid wave states:

4. The Cranial Rhythmic Impulse and the Cerebral Spinal Fluid.

5. The Slow Wave and the Dura Mater, the heart of the entire fascial membranous system.

6. The Whole Wave and the Central Nervous System with release of massive amounts of discordant energies in an ejection pulse.

And the highest state of release,

7.  The release of pure potential or source, into the body, also known as the “mid-line release” in reference to embryology.

When you “know” the “behavior” and responses of the fascia and thought, you will see the activities and responses of bone and spirit, then the cerebral spinal fluid and onto the higher levels and  all of its wave forms and activities and interfaces with the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical being.
