Teach Your Hands To Treat the Whole Person

With Wholistic Manual Medicine

Wholistic Manual Medicine is the ability to use our hands to evaluate and treat the whole person; body, mind, and spirit. We don’t “diagnose” or provide external “cures”.  Rather, we look for tightness or hardness of the tissues and, with our hands, we facilitate the release of the tension that was preventing normal flows. The body then begins to heal.

Why Academy of Wholistic Manual Medicine?

ABOUT AWMM
These courses have been created for Massage, Physical, Occupational et al Therapists, Nurses and Physicians to improve awareness & outcomes in hands on treatment!

MISSION
The Academy is dedicated to developing and promoting visibility and education in the wholistic manual medicine, a new paradigm in health care, created by Dr. Keith Barbour D.O.

CURRICULUM DESCRIPTION:
Wholistic Manual Medicine, developed by Dr. Keith Barbour, facilitates your body’s natural healing to release pain.

Use your hands to evaluate and treat the whole person; body, mind, and spirit.

Wholistic Manual Medicine treatment is based in the science of observing nature and how it works; of living, breathing, functional anatomy.

It is the study of how the body heals itself, the study of the interrelationship and interdependence of structure and function, the accumulated knowledge and study in all sciences as applied to the mind and the body.

Wholistic Manual Medicine is a science that is founded in the profound acknowledgment of the body’s tremendous inherent knowledge and ability to heal.

AWMM SYLLABUS

We start with the basic approach to evaluation and the process of release, and then learn to apply these to muscle, then fascia, viscera, then bone and finally cranium. The structure of the classes is such that the simplest principles and techniques are mastered first and in a step wise fashion the more complex aspects easily fold into the students level of skill and understanding. 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.

INTRODUCTORY CLASSES
Three elementary courses are offered for practitioners new to the practice of Wholistic Manual Medicine all have no prerequisite. The one-half day INTRODUCTORY course to introduce the student to the basic principles and practice of Wholistic Manual Medicine; The PROCEDURES FOR THE IMMUNE SYSTEM and the ETHICS courses all help to prepare practitioners for optimum success. 
CORE CURRICULUM
The Wholistic Manual Medicine (WMM) Core Curriculum is taught in either 6 weekend classes or 3 extended sections. Each class teaches proficiency in the evaluation and treatment of specific energy states and its associated specific tissues, aspects of mind, and the body’s self-healing / homeostatic systems. Once finished, participants will be able to evaluate and treat the whole person.
ADVANCE CLASSES

After practitioners master the nine areas of the AWMM Core Curriculum, Advance courses offer more opportunity to further applied understanding and skills. Courses in Advance Cranial studies address the patient/client balance of release and emerging pure potential of the body. Aqua Healing techniques address a patient’s complex neuromuscular re-education in the water.

SECTION I: WMM 1 & 2

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, emotion AND the autonomic nervous system simultaneously!  Experience another quantum shift in perception and skill as you see how the same process of Release! occurs in fascia, thought and the immune system. Learn how release at one level allows for the release of all tissues, energies and systems at all lower levens!

SECTION II: WMM 3 & 4

We continue the journey of quantum shifts in perception and release of stored tensions and energies from the viscera in WMM3 and bone in WMM4! This relates to the endocrine system and spirit. Learn to “Float the bone” in the fluid matrix while releases occur in all lower energy states: muscle, emotion and autonomics, viscera, immune system and fascia.

SECTION III: WMM 5 & 6

We finish the basic curriculum with the first two levels of fluid release, the cranial rhythmic impulse in basic cranial and the slow wave in advanced cranial.  All lower energy states release in the process.

Advanced courses introduce us to release of the whole wave, and finally source; releasing embryonic energy, into action within the body.
