To our CHI Students

As many of you are aware, we are all being affected by the novel coronavirus and the spread of it through our communities and countries.

Our first priority is and has always been the health, safety, and wellness of our students. It is with an abundance of caution that we are immediately taking measures to protect the health and lives of not only you as our valued students, but our communities and beyond.

As a result, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our classes from now until at least September 30th, 2020. We are listening to health officials and taking their recommendations. We will continue to monitor the situation and respond as required. Once this crisis has passed, we will reschedule our classes, and contact you with the new dates.

For those of you that are already registered for the affected classes, we have moved all registrations to a Holding class. Additionally, we will be contacting you via email, text or phone. Please respond with an email reply at [email protected] or call us at 480-999-0808 or 888-333-1055, Option 1 for any questions or assistance. You can also text us at 423-822-2490.

You can always follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates.

We are inspired to continue sharing our education during this pause in our lives.

One Day Introduction to Heart Centered Therapy (HCT0-O) Sun. Jul. 19th, 2020 


Online Fluid Articular Release-Upper (FAR-U-O) Sun. Aug. 16th - Tu. Aug. 18th, 2020 

Class Content: 

This wonderful class will teach students to use a specific synovial fluid rhythm and the body's inherent articulation rhythm to release restrictions specific to all body articulations, including "fused" embryological articulations.
This class, previously called LAFR/RAFT, has been successfully taught for over 10 years in the lymph curriculum and has no prerequisite.

  • Learn how to release joints in the body in a non-invasive manner.
  • Learn articulation fluid release techniques for:
    - Peripheral (appendicular) articulations: upper extremity from acromioclavicular joint and clavicle to the hand articulations - embryological structures
    - Two types of rib cage articulations – sternum and embryological structures
    - Spine: cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral and coccyx – intervertebral, facets (zygapophyseal) and embryological articulations

These techniques use fluid and are gentle and can be applied with ease and great success to babies, elderly and even animal.

  • When the bony framework is out of place numerous types of pathologies can happen, from pain and dysfunction, discomfort, asymmetry/misalignment, range of motion abnormality, tissue/tone changes, affecting the muscles, fascia, viscera or bones themselves.

A wide range of pathologies can be associated with joint dysfunction, and may be alleviated by these techniques, including:

  • Musculoskeletal pain in general
  • Neck pain
  • Some headache, dizziness or vertigo
  • Joint pain such as shoulder pain, elbow pain, wrist pain, etc.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Treatment of accidents and injuries, including some whiplash
  • Work injuries
  • Sport injuries
  • Repetitive stress injury (RSI), joint or muscle overuse
  • Arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis
  • Some gastrointestinal disorders (somato-visceral reflex)
  • Some nerve entrapment
  • Stress, general vitality and well being


Embryological articulations assessed and released during FAR-U classes:

  • Metopic suture
  • Symphysis menti
  • Vertical sternal bars
  • Sternebrae
  • Posterior neural arch of vertebrae, centrum and other articulations
  • Diaphysis / epiphysis of extremities

These techniques use fluid and are non invasive and can be applied with ease and great success to babies, elderly and even animal.
