I am an AOBTA® Certified Instructor and have taught hundreds of students and classes in person and online over the past 26+ years. I offer a variety of classes in varying levels.

These classes and programs are a little longer and more in-depth. They may also require a pre-requisite course such as Intro To Traditional Chinese Medicine Theories.

Amma Apprenticeship 2021!
I’ve had a number of inquiries about my 500 hour – Amma Apprenticeship program – which is fantastic. Here’s the rub (pun intended) – the pandemic has put a screeching halt on many forms of hands-on work and teaching.
However! We can move forward with learning online and tackling the lecture portions of Amma. That’s all the theory, the channel systems and point locations, even tongue assessment. We will have to wait until it is safe to touch to teach the hands on therapy technique, refine point location and teach pulse assessment.
Adaptability is the key here. We have some wonderful platforms like Zoom and Thinkific that make it possible for me to teach online to those near and far. I will leverage them to the fullest to give students the best possible learning experience. Some potential students are wanting to learn just the theories and assessment, adding these beautiful tools to their current practice. Some want to learn the theory and the magnificent bodywork form. For those who also want to learn the bodywork techniques, I will offer workshops or week training when it is safe to touch and travel again (I have students interested around the world). Find out more.
Over the years I have had the pleasure of mentoring or coaching practitioners in several fields. Whether this an alumni seeking to learn precision point work or refine their tongue and pulse assessment, or those in other bodywork fields wishing to learn cupping or gua sha techniques to western nutritionists who want to add the wealth of Asian food energetics to their skill set – I can help. I am also able to administer practical tests for those seeking membership in the AOBTA. Fees for mentoring and coaching average about $55/hour but can vary depending on what is desired. Discuss this directly with me.
Certificates for those needing PDA’s and CEU’s are available.
I look forward to working with you!
The age of Zoom is upon us. I prefer to offer most classes live online to allow for better teacher and student interaction. However, as my platform is growing and to meet needs of my students here and abroad I will be putting up on-demand classes soon.
