Learn simple, powerful practices to swiftly improve the functioning and well-being of your clients.

Master an integrative framework that allows you to combine energy work with most conventional psychotherapy modalities. 


Develop a specialty niche in the $57 billion complementary and alternative health care market and reduce dependency on low-fee managed care contracts.


By the end of both workshops, you will learn a comprehensive approach to energy psychology interventions, which include working with:

  • Energy Pathways - The Meridians and Related Acupoints
  • Energy Centers - The Chakras
  • Energy Systems - Biofields that envelop the body

This is Level ONE of a two-part series
designed to help you understand EP within an overall perspective of sound science, practical application and ethical consideration. You will leave with a comprehensive array of tools that enable you to customize treatment for each client. You will also have a framework that allows you to integrate these tools with most conventional psychotherapy modalities. This workshop also prepares helping professionals wishing to become part of ACEP’s certification program in comprehensive energy psychology.
