Advanced teaching and support

Ensuring your success

Becoming certified is a transformational journey. To support you along the way I have a collection of resources that ensure your successful completion of the program. There are many layers of learning that must be mastered in order to be competent in Meridian Massage. These resources are intended to provide a depth of understanding that goes beyond memorization or just "getting through" the material.

Resources for In-Depth Learning

That you can rely on even after you graduate!

  • Mastermind Meetings

    Each meeting is a time to integrate the content of the courses into practical understanding. Enrolled students and graduates are invited to every live online meeting. Each session provides you with the opportunity to ask questions, clarify the theory and practice, go over case studies, and refine how you are using Meridian Massage for yourself and others. Certification students and graduates have access to the rich library of past Mastermind Meetings. Even after you graduate, you will be invited to join live Masterminds, and have access to all future recordings!

  • Email Support

    Certification students can email me anytime and I will personally respond to your questions as soon as possible (usually within 24 hours).

  • Certification Program Syllabus

    The certification program consists of seven courses. Your syllabus keeps you on track so that your learning experience is layered and organized.

  • Final Exam

    The last step of the online certification process is to pass the final exam. Upon successful completion of the exam, your Meridian Massage Approach Online Certification Certificate will be in your student account so that you can download it, print it and celebrate!

As both a Massage Therapist and Acupuncturist, I have been weaving the theory of Chinese Medicine and western massage therapy into the Meridian Massage Approach.  Meridian Massage is a holistic, hands-on approach that anyone can use to support the health of themselves or others.I am the founder of the Big Tree School of Natural Healing and the author of Meridian Massage, Opening Pathways to Vitality. I appreciate the opportunity to share the wisdom of this work with you.
