All You Need To Know … As An Introduction
As a certified practitioner of several Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and wellness modalities, I teach Introductory classes, which explain the concepts involved. So, if you have ever heard the term “holistic healing,” “Complementary and Alternative Medicine,” or “CAM,” and you wondered what the heck that means, these wellness classes provide the answers for natural ways of healing yourself – meaning non-synthetic, non-pharmaceutical, and non-surgical ways of increasing your health.
The critical thing is to penetrate the cause, not just the symptoms, of whatever the dis-ease expression is. That involves the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of a person, as relates to his or her physical manifestations of balance and imbalance: thus, the expression, “As Above, So Below,” but without specific religious connotations. I have worked successfully with people of many faiths and with some who had no religious philosophies. I also have worked successfully with many animals, and it is pretty safe to say that they had no religious beliefs of any recognizable kind. The treatments still worked.
Because there is a lot of experiential evidence (about the efficacy of things, like acupuncture) that was not obtained via traditional Western scientific study methods, I disagree with some of Wikipedia’s conclusions. Still, see what it offers for the (partial) definition of some of these terms, as follows:
Alternative medicine is any practice that is put forward as having the healing effects of medicine, but is not founded on evidence gathered using the scientific method. It consists of a wide range of health care practices, products and therapies. Examples include new and traditional medicine practices such as homeopathy, naturopathy, chiropractic, energy medicine, various forms of acupuncture, Traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, and Christian faith healing. The treatments are those that are not part of the conventional, science-based healthcare system, and are not backed by scientific evidence. Complementary medicine is alternative medicine used together with conventional medical treatment in a belief, not proven by using scientific methods, that it “complements” the treatment.[n 1] CAM is the abbreviation for Complementary and alternative medicine. Integrative medicine (or integrative health) is the combination of the practices and methods of alternative medicine with conventional medicine.
Even the National Institutes of Health recognizes some of the CAM modalities. One source for learning more about Evidence Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine is the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a division of the United States National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health.

Classes – Wellness
INTRODUCTION TO COMPLEMENTARY AND ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE
Did you know that ROSES have enormous healing powers? Imagine what else you will learn!
This particular class is a four hour seminar (with breaks and snacks); but it can be an all-day seminar, too. See list of topics below. The cost is determined by number of participants, commute time and distance, etc.
In this class on wellness, we shall discuss topics, such as:
Why Anything Works = Energy!
Who and What Can Be Healed
Categories of Holistic Approaches – ingestants, physical manipulation, energy work
Some Principles, Ethics and Theory
Thoughts Are Things – how we create wellness and dis-ease through thought patterns
Sources of Messages – Clairvoyance, Clairaudience, etc.
Causes of Dis-Ease
Body as Messenger – where it hurts is a clue for healing
Correspondences – Chakras / Colors / Notes on Scale
Cleansing and Protection – cleansing not only the body, but the aura
What Happens During Healing sessions and afterward.
The only complaint I’ve ever gotten about this class (and about my other metaphysics and meditation classes) is that the students wanted the class to be longer!
They even said this when the class was four hours long! So, you can see we had fun and learned a lot. The highest compliment I got recently was that not a single person even looked at his/her cell phone during the entire class! YEA! Contact me. You’ll love it, too!
