This course gave me some concrete reasoning as to why people will release their emotions while I'm breaking up their "pockets of pain" during a bodywork session.

W. Scott Pollard CMT Rockville, MD
This was the best course I have ever taken - perhaps it resonates with what I was looking for in my personal healing. Wonderful medical insights - I am a RN, LMT, Reiki Master & HeartMath practitioner - this went much deeper into the power of emotions on physical well-being. Thank you!!

Trina Davis, NCTMB
The book for this course was outstanding. The author must be an amazing person. The information was clear, concise, and heartfelt.
Nancy Arias, LMT
I was thrilled to study this very relevant subject matter and happy that it was offered. It validated all that I've ever witnessed in my own practice, giving scientific evidence to the understanding that "the body tells the story!" My expectations were, however, that the information would be more biochemical and anatomical in nature as opposed to psychotherapeutical. Regardless, the information was valuable and I would recommend this course to any health practitioner, not just massage therapists.
Rebecca Summers, LMT, NCTMB
This was my first self-study course. I loved it! It was very insightful, and brought to the table aspects of my practice I can work on improving.
Mica Helms, LMT, NCTMB
LOVE the book!! It was a great read and highly recommended for anyone interested in mind-body therapy.
Monica Robbins, LMT, NCTMB, ABMP
The course was very inlighting to me. Mr. Roman has a very good handle on feeling mind and getting well with heart and soul.
Wayne Martin, LMT
This book really helped me to understand why people feel the way they do, it gave me a better understanding of how powerful the mind can be and how the body and mind coralte.
Great course, loved it!
Annette D., LMT
Great course... every medically involved human being needs to read and take this course!
Keri Ann Heitzman, LMT, NCTMB
Fantastic course! Great insights into the mind-body system, the cascading of bio-chemical responses, fragmenting of traumas in the tissues, the role of the heart, electrolytes, hormones and neuropeptides play in the overall health of our amazing bodies. The author presents the science behind body-mind health, thoughtful case studies and great suggested books for further reading.
Renae Hawkos, RMT, NCTMB
I loved this course! Andy's book is informative and engaging, and was a pleasure to read beginning to end. Thank you!
Elisabeth Nehme, NCTMB
Loved the book. Will reread often.
Tamara Casto, LMT
Excellent course!! I am thrilled I found this institute. I cannot speak highly enough of the book, deep feeling, deep healing. Way exceeded my expectations. I have already recommended it to others. Thank you for providing excellent material.
This course was exactly what I needed to give me the background and confidence to adequately bring up to clients and people the power of the heart and how our emotions directly reflect our biology. Backed by some really amazing and awe-inspiring scientific studies and case studies! This information is a MUST for every human being to understand! I LOVE this topic and it is going to open many doors for me.
Stephanie Bellocchio, LMT
Overall, this class was fascinating, and provided me with a strong framework and a language to describe the bodywork I've already been doing. I was hoping for more direct instructions and bodywork techniques about how to apply the theories of PNI in an actual treatment session. More information about the location of and how to activate the endocrine points, etc. would have been appreciated.
Allison Kirk, LMBT
"The human body structurally demonstrates the fundamental and natural necessity for boundary-setting as a means of sustaining health, especially in two locales: the skin and the immune system. The skin is both our outermost organ and the site of physical contact with the world, marks where the self ends and the "outer" world beings. Also known as the "integument," it functions as the built-in delineator of our separateness and our integrity as individuals. When someone touches us lovingly and appropriately, we feel soothed, stimulated, "in touch", and connected. Gentle touch not only elicits a cascade of mood altering endorphins and the relaxation response to make us feel good, it also triggers the skin to release thymopoeitan, a hormone which bolsters our immune competence by stimulating maturing immune cells. When someone touches us without our permission we feel "invaded" and "violated," and our fight-or-flight response kicks in, along with a gush of stress hormones, aborted digestion, elevated blood pressure, and increased muscle tension. Negative contact with the world is an emergency." (Deep Feeling, Deep Healing by Andy Bernay-Roman LMHC, NCC, MS, RN, LMT, 2001, p. 69)
The necessity for intact boundaries, as vital to the integrity of the entire organism, is best reflected in which two parts of the human anatomy?
