Chi Aura Integration

chi aura

Chi-Aura Integration is an alternative healing method using the vital life force. Chi-Aura is a set of skills used to read the health of the body and facilitate healing and balance. This method can be used by individuals for self-healing or by practitioners in relationship with their patients. By learning how to relax into a state of mind that is able to "read" the energy field of the body and to work hands-on with the out-of-balance conditions which lead to illness, the nurse-to-patient relationship can be greatly enhanced by incorporating these skills.

This workshop teaches techniques to elicit the relaxation response and help develop the “Awakened Mind State”. Learn how to perform the specific Chi-Aura Integration hand positions identifying specific acupoints, energy centers and parts of the body to release muscle tension and induce the relaxation response to promote healing.

Chi-Aura Integration is relevant because it develops the nurse’s ability to improve their effectiveness in treating patients. This course is approved for 18 CEU’s for Nurses, 14 CEU’s for massage therapists, and 15 CEH’s for acupuncturists.
