Interactive Body Balancing  – 160 Hours 
Students will practice a system of precise muscle tests and treatment protocols designed to re-program the motor control center of the brain where all movement patterns are coordinated. Chronic pain, repetitive strain patterns, postural compensations and injuries can be re-patterned neurologically to restore balance to the body. Advanced assessment skills and corrective movement protocols to enhance client success will also be learned and demonstrated. Interactive Body Balancing Therapy complements all other treatment modalities previously learned.
