Course Descriptions

Chakra Balancing Course — Levels I - V
Chakra Balancing is a hands-on healing modality which uses gentle, non-invasive touch to promote the healing and integration of body, mind, emotion and spirit.  It facilitates relaxation, pain relief, and stress reduction. Opening the chakras and balancing the energy flow through touch gives the body access to all available resources for wellness and provides new tools for insight and increased well-being.
A knowledge of the chakras allows an in-depth understanding of the mind-body connection.

Both beginning and advanced students are welcome. No previous experience is necessary. The work stands alone as a healing modality and is also an effective adjunct to all types of bodywork. It can be easily integrated with other modalities.

The Chakra Balancing course is appropriate for:

  • the bodywork practitioner* and other health professionals seeking alternative skills,
  • individuals with a desire to be a healing presence in their community, and
  • those with an interest in personal growth.

*Arlyn Kline is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider. CE's are also available for massage therapists for the Maryland Board of Chiropractic and Massage Therapy.

This five-level course examines the ancient system of the chakras as an alternative paradigm from which to view physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and "dis-ease." Class format includes lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice. Each level is 5 weeks with a 3 hour class each week.
