Clinical Acupressure Certification

About Clinical Acupressure Certification Levels

Individuals who complete the certification process not only develop solid skills to use in their professional practice, they are likely to undergo a profound personal journey of exploration and clarification as well. Becoming a certified Soul Lightening Acupressure practitioner offers the opportunity for learning and growth on all levels—body, mind, emotions, and soul.

The Foundation Certification indicates that an individual has met the requirements and demonstrated their understanding of basic skills in Soul Lightening Acupressure. They have successfully completed foundation level coursework including Clinical Acupressure 1:  Basic Applications and Process Acupressure 1: Gateway to Soul, they have passed a written examination, and submitted session reports for review by our faculty. The final step in their certification process is a faculty consultation/assessment. Completion of all these requirements ensure a strong foundation in Soul Lightening Acupressure, after which the individual may begin incorporating SL Acupressure into their existing professional practice. The Foundation Certification is a prerequisite to entering either of our professional certification programs (PA or CA).

Approved Clinical Acupressure Mentors

Note from Certification Director:  When choosing a CA Mentor, please read the statements from the various mentors first. Then you may email a mentor and request a brief phone call to determine if the mentor is a good match for you. These brief phone calls are usually no charge, but check with the mentor when you email them to find out if it is no charge or not. You may also talk to a mentor at a class you are taking from that mentor. If you have any questions, please email Arline Rowden at rowdenllcatgmaildotcom  (rowdenllcatgmaildotcom)
