The CTM 1 certificate includes dozens of specific exercises and treatment strategies within the context of traditional Chinese medicine as well as a personalized approach to the most popular health maintenance routines. In each class, emphasis is placed on perceiving, understanding, and guiding qi for specific therapeutic benefit. The detailed palpation of soft tissue, channels, and cavities is made clear through our livestream workshops, detailed class notes, and online video recordings.

Tim's classes are accessible and simple—so a beginner can benefit from them. His classes are also deeply complex—there is always another layer to uncover and explore.                       ... Louise F.

CTM 2: Advanced Channel-based Therapeutic Movement Certificate (50 hours)

Deepen your practice of Chinese therapeutic movement by exploring how the basic strategies combine to create powerful and synergistic effects through the movements of Tai Chi, Bagua, the Five Animal Play, and other traditional practices. In order to fully uncover the internal dynamics of traditional exercises, we will compare multiple systems of each (for example with five different interpretations of the Tiger Play, both in place and walking). We will review the basic exercises and strategies of CTM 1 as a jumping off point for each new curriculum block. This course will also further your understanding of traditional Chinese diagnosis and treatment strategies.
