Understanding Bodywork through the Chakra System

3.5 CE hours (non-contact)


(Audio, Study Guide and Test are included)


This course will give you a basic understanding of how to recognize the physical, emotional, and mental symptoms of each of the seven (7) chakras.  You will learn the name, function, focused area of the body, and sensory effects/affects of each of the seven (7) chakras when they are balanced as well as imbalanced.


Understanding the chakras will help you integrate conversations with your client, assess information from their intake form,  and define your own objective observations to plan a course of treatment through your massage practice.  The information in this course will give you a better understanding of your client and their personal massage needs.  


Examples relating to the physiology and psychology of each of the 7 chakras will be discussed to help clarify and inform massage treatment to specific areas in the body.  Treatment suggestions and options (within the scope of massage therapy) will be discussed.



It is important to mention that some of the massage modalities mentioned in this text require special training and certification. 


In no way, does this course certify the student for specific massage modalities.  Understanding Bodywork through the Chakra System  is an introductory, informational text to inform your current practice in understanding the chakra system.


If any of the modalities mentioned in this text interest you, I suggest you seek further training in them.  Combined with the knowledge you  receive from this course, your massage practice will be greatly  enriched.


This course does not attempt to diagnose nor prescribe, yet merely offers the massage therapist a clearer look into the overall nature of the client’s discomfort during any specific massage visit.  This added information, will enable you to find more specific and beneficial ways of assisting your clients from the massage therapist’s perspective.



This course is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).
