Reading the Body and Practitioners Skills

Each color, line and marking on the face, tongue and nails holds meaning of your internal health.  Margi will be explaining and demonstrating diagnostic techniques taught to her by the late William Le Sassier.

Knowing what the body has to say, we can learn how to prevent illness.  Our seminar will consist of both lecture and hands on learning with ample opportunity for questions to understand what your body is saying to you.  Please arrive makeup and nail polish free
Practitioner Skills

Learning the skills of a healthy client/practitioner relationship is an essential part of creating a dynamic clinical practice. In this one-day workshop, Margi Flint shares her insights for working with clients, gleaned from her 40+ years of private practice as an herbalist, labor coach and polarity therapist.

We will cover valuable topics including:
      *Creating healthy boundaries
·      Listening skills

      *Knowing the right questions to ask/questioning without blushing

      *Drop pulse testing to affirm herbal choices
·      Billing and concepts about money

      *Office skills including herbal preparation, client directions, file compilation, follow-up and invoicing

This is an excellent workshop for any student or professional practitioner to learn new ways of creating and supporting the therapeutic relationship and seeing an elder herbalist in practice.

We will spend the day practicing the diagnostic skills learned from lecture
and the Book
The Practicing Herbalist.
