Foundation Certificate Courses

We’re Aligning our Foundation Certificate Program to better serve!!!

The goal of Soul Lightening Acupressure has been to meet a diverse group of students with varied needs in our program offerings. We are pleased to continue offering Professional and Advanced Professional levels of certification

At the heart of any of the programs is completion of foundational courses, Process Acupressure (PA) 1A and Clinical Acupressure (CA) 1, which provide a basic understanding of SLA.

In 2021, to meet the needs of those students choosing a less rigorous course of study, a path to a Foundation Certificate Program (FCP) will be offered. This can be obtained after completion of both PA 1 and CA 1, submitting an application and passing a multiple-choice open book exam  and paying a $25 administrative fee.

For those students wanting to pursue a more in-depth professional certification, we offer our Process Acupressure and Clinical Acupressure Professional Certification programs.  Both PA 1A and CA 1 are requirements for these programs.

If you already hold a Foundation Certification, you will still be listed on the website as having received the SLI Foundation Certification.

If you are currently enrolled in a Foundation Certification process, you will have until June 30, 2021 to complete the program requirements and be listed on the website as having received SLI Foundation Certification.

If you have recently completed one foundation course within the last year, but have not yet enrolled in the certification program, you may choose to enroll in the existing Foundation Certification program before December 31, 2020, and complete the program requirements by June 30, 2021.  OR, you may choose to consider the new Foundation Certificate Program (FCP) described above.

We hope you will enjoy the new opportunities and flexibility we offer through Soul Lightening Acupressure

Foundation Courses

Most students begin their work with us by enrolling in our Foundation Certificate program. This is comprised of the two foundation level courses in Process Acupressure and Clinical Acupressure. These courses give a basic overview and skill set for beginning to understand and practice Soul Lightening Acupressure.

Foundation Certificate Required Course Descriptions

Clinical Acupressure 1: Basic Applications (CA1)
This workshop teaches how to use acupressure to balance and energize the whole body and specific parts. Demonstration and practice show the application of formulas for all parts of the body, such as the head, neck, back, face, chest, abdomen, pelvis, legs and feet, arms and hands, and many symptoms, such as blood pressure, constipation, digestive problems, headaches, etc. Participants learn to locate and access more than 35 potent acupressure points. They also receive a clinical handbook and study guide with more than 70 specific acupressure formulas for specific body parts and conditions. Appropriate for clinical applications. This workshop is ideal for health-care professionals with hands-on experience.
Note: This is one of our two Foundation courses. The other is:  Process Acupressure 1A:  Foundations (PA1A). See PA courses for description of this workshop.)

Process Acupressure 1A: Foundations (PA1A)
Process Acupressure (PA) is a simple, yet profound, holistic method that combines traditional acupressure (to a fully-clothed body) with a process approach to consciousness. It facilitates healing and the natural growth process that arises from within the individual. Process skills are taught that facilitate clarity-in mind, emotions, and spirit. Soul centered development is emphasized. Although acupressure is a lifelong study, this course will empower you to work effectively with energy flow in the body including both meridians and chakras, toward greater balance. You will learn tools that give you confidence. PA can be used alone for self-help or easily given to another. It can also be combined with another body modality. For example, our work with the Great Central Channel strengthens the energetic pathway of the spine and is an excellent complement to Acupuncture, Chiropractic, CranioSacral Therapy, Massage Therapy, rehab modalities, and more.
Note: This is one of our two Foundation courses. The other is CA1:  Clinical Acupressure 1:  Basic Applications. See CA courses for description of CA1.

For students who are new to foundation courses or already have 1 of the foundation level courses, and will have completed both courses in the near future, You may choose the certification program – only if you plan on completing all requirements before June 30, 2021.
