Level 2 consists of 16 or more clock hours of instruction each that allows the participant to gain specific skills necessary for more advanced practice. Emphasis is on deepening skills, developing healing sequences for specific client needs, learning back and neck techniques, and gaining skills in therapeutic interactions.
This class is for students who have taken Level 1 and embraced the intention, feeling and sense that they have "finally found" what their heart has been searching for. Level 2 can be taken by anyone who has taken a Level 1 class. Ideally, before taking Level 2 the student has practiced with friends, family or colleagues and is comfortable using Level 1 techniques. Recommended reading includes Brugh Joy's book, "Joy's Way" (available in bookstores or through the Healing Touch Program).
