Academy of Wholistic Manual Medicine

Class Offerings

Learn to evaluate and treat the WHOLE person with the Academy of Wholistic Manual Medicine

Curriculum starts 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 the cranium.

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.

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.

Academy of Wholistic Manual Medicine is pending updated approval as provider for continuing education by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Body Work.

This activity has been submitted to American Holistic Nurses Association for approval to award contact hours. The American Holistic Nurses Association is accredited as an approver of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission of Accreditation.

Three elementary courses are offered for practitioners new to the practice of Wholistic Manual Medicine all have no prerequisite.  The full 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. 

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.
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: Muscle. Emotion & Autonomics
Foundation course. The journey begins! Learn the template for all release procedures, in fact all “release” phenomena at the easiest level, muscle, emotion and the autonomic system!  Learn a one minute screening evaluation of both the physical body and how it is being controlled by the mind to focus in on the key areas for further evaluation and treatment. Learn the relationship of muscle to emotion. Be able to have a greater impact on the well being of your patients and clients with less time, force, fatigue, wear and tear and energy.  Learn how to prevent the phenomena of being drained by your work and certain client types.  Break into higher levels of awareness of the human condition and human interactions and behaviors.
No Prerequisite.
14 Contact Hours
Fee: $500
WMM 2: Fascia, Though & Immune
Take everything we learned in WMM I – Muscle & Emotion; and apply it to our understanding of fascia and thought with an added dimension of complexity in WMM II. Explore the relationship of the fascia and the autonomic nervous system and the immune system. Hone the skills of evaluating structure and function and learn the critical role perception plays in how and where we treat.
Prerequisite: WMM 1
14 Contact Hours
Fee: $525

Fee for SECTION I: WMM 1 & WMM 2 taken at one event: $1000

SECTION II:

WMM 3: Viscera & Feelings
The viscera operate under autonomic control, and so release in identical fashion to muscle. The organs are wrapped in a thick fascia, the capsule, which releases (as does all connective tissues), at the second quantum level of release; fascia and thought. So, here we are not learning a new level of release, rather, combining all of what we know and applying it to a different tissue. This will cement in the first two levels while adding additional subtleties that will prepare you for your next “leap” in awareness and skill in WMM IV; the osseous tissues/ bone.
Prerequisite: WMM 2
14 Contact Hours
Fee: $525
WMM 4: Bone, Spirit & the Endocrine System
Learn the physiology of bone to facilitate release of entire regions of the body (remaining within the scope of practice of soft-tissue therapists). Apply the principles of release to the boney structures used in our initial screen. Get releases in all of the tissues in the fascia hanging from that bone. Make a quantum shift in awareness and results with less work. Understand the beginnings of spirit and the endocrine system and their relationships to bone and the rest of the body.
Prerequisite: WMM 3
14 Contact Hours
Fee: $550

Fee for SECTION II: WMM3 & WMM 4 taken at one event: $1050

SECTION III:

WMM 5: Cranial 1 : CRI
Study the release of the cranial system, the Cerebral Spinal Fluid, the Cranial Rhythmic Impulse and their relationships to the whole person. Learn to integrate all knowledge and experience into a single approach.
Prerequisite: WMM 4
14 Contact Hours
Fee: $550
WMM 6: Advanced Cranium 2 : Slow Wave In this class we make a leap in perception while exploring the intricacies of the Cranial System by introducing the “slow wave” and soul activity. The slow wave is the shortest route to the release of key sutural and dural structures that restrict the Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF),  Cranial Rhythmic Impulse (CRI), and the Central Nervous System (CNS) and the Souls ability to express itself in the physical universe. It takes you and your patient/client to deeper levels of the soul for release of deeper blocks to the souls functioning. We’ll look with greater detail at key sutures and how they can lock up the entire structure and distort the Cranial Rhythmic Impulse.

Fee for SECTION III: WMM5 & WMM 6 taken at one event: $1100

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, 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 and the science of how that happens.

Both structure (body, the anatomy) and function (its actions and outcomes) are evaluated in a sixty second screen which tells us where to look closer in the body and whether or not functional aspects (mind, behavior, metabolism, genetics, environment etc.) are prominent.  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.

Discounted Fee for Full Core Curriculum: SECTIONS I, II, III, if registered at one time: $3000

“Connecting the immune system to thought and going home with hands on tools to facilitate change in these areas is invaluable, thank you!” – CB

ADVANCED CLASSES

The following classes are intended for graduates of the Core Curriculum who have covered the first through fifth energy states. Advance Cranial 2 and Advanced Cranial 3 takes students to the next two and last of the major energy states.

Aqua healing explores the neuromuscular system and homeostatic load further with added leverage and power of waves in and out of the body for the release of the abnormally held motor reflexes and its associated energies. This in turn reduces homeostatic load and re- creates neuromuscular readiness: the willingness of the neuromuscular system to allow for deeper change and higher level releases.

Jumping levels takes the student from where they are functioning as Wholistic Manual Medicine Practitioners to the next level.

Putting it all together helps the practitioner to further integrate their skills and knowledge into a more cohesive and personal approach.

Vogel Crystal Technology 1 teaches the use of the Vogel healing crystal with Fulford processes to facilitate the release of energy blocks at all levels. Learn the basics of Vogle healing crystal technology. How to charge and “clear” or discharge quartz, and the process of release using the Vogle healing crystal.

ADVANCED CRANIAL 3: Whole Wave
In this class, also known as “whole wave”, we treat the patient/client by balancing the multitudes of waves found in the body resulting in an ejection pulse release of vast amounts of energy that had been stored in the body from multiple past traumas and diseases.
Prerequisite:  WMM 6
14 Contact Hours
Fee: $600
ADVANCED CRANIAL 4: Source
This is the “source” class where we learn to balance all pressures so delicately and perfectly that, following the release of all discordant energies, there is a release of pure potential into the body. All lower level releases involve the release of stored, discordant energies, followed by increased respiratory function, with the breath reaching deeper into the previously restricted areas. At this level the release is all of the above plus the injection of source, zeropoint, pure potential into the body.

ADVANCED AQUA HEALING
Learn how to de-stress the bodies self healing mechanisms fast through complex neuromuscular re-education in water and create neuromuscular readiness (the ability to completely relax all muscles at the same time) in your patient/client. The state of neuromuscular readiness allows for your patient/client to respond more permanently to all other interventions and treatments. This is cutting edge, breakthrough medicine that teaches you many tricks and subtleties that can be applied on the table to get breakthroughs and speed recovery to a pain free state.

VOGEL CRYSTAL TECHNOLOGY 1
Learn the basics of Vogle healing crystal technology.  How to charge and “clear” or discharge quartz, and the process of release using the Vogle healing crystal.

Marcel Vogle was the IBM scientist responsible for the personal computer revolution by the development of the Hard Drive.  His research into the growth of quartz and its physical and electrical properties allowed him to push the envelope further and develop what is now known as the Vogel healing crystal. Doctor Robert Fulford developed the process of release some forty years earlier and designed the mechanical version of the healing crystal known as the percussion hammer.  It is the Fulford process that we utilize in Wholistic Manual Medicine and in the Vogel healing crystal.

This is a very powerful tool that is proliferating fast, now that the technology of creating them has advanced and the cost has come down.  However, the necessary knowledge of how to use it is lacking.

This course is an absolute necessity for anyone who has or wishes to own a working Vogle healing crystal.

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” and responses of   Fascia 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:
  1. The Cranial Rhythmic Impulse and the Cerebral Spinal Fluid.
  2. The Slow Wave and the Dura Mater, the heart of the entire fascial membranous system.
  3. 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,
  1. The release of pure potential or source, into the body, also known as the “mid-line release” in reference to embryology. The release of  “unstructured, structuring, pre-energy”.
When you know the “behavior” and release of muscle and emotion, then you will leap in understanding and skill to the fascia and thought, then leap to that 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.

“I received so much valuable information! I look forward to future classes. I know what fascia is and what is looks and feels like. I know how to screen and feel things through my fingers and hands. I truly loved this class. It has given me a better understanding of the whole being. Mind, body and spirit.”  CC
