Transformative Healing

For anyone in the hands-on trajectory – even if you never had acupuncture training can take this.

Why healing is not happening naturally.
Why the course and work is structured as it is.
You can add in needles - and if you already do – learn how the channels – Qi and Lymph – interact to provide excellence in every session.

Acupuncture cheat sheets for most conditions – in combo with the hands-on you have Heather’s Gentling Way signature system. 4 decades in R & D.

How can I do this?
I have been designing, writing and teaching all levels of acupuncture training since 1981.

Will include closed Facebook and Zoom tutoring


Transformative Healing

Advanced CHANNEL application

Transferable effective life skills.

Segue out of organ pathology and ‘action of points’ and back into Qi flow.


The use of 8 Extras in all perverse Qi release. Jing (life) mastership – meridian hierarchy.

Palpatory guide interactive acupuncture/energy work.

Anyone can take as this is mastering Qi - acup training as masters teach - not scholarly.
