Course Overview

As an acupuncturist, healer or therapist you strive to assist yourself and your clients in optimal health and well-being. Ancient methods that have been the core of the traditional medical philosophy now turn out to be of proven value and essential in western medicine as well.

During this training, we will explore both the science and the practical implementation of the ancient principle ‘Ben Shen’, being Rooted in the Spirits and how this can support you and your clients both in daily life and during (acupuncture) sessions.

You will discover

Part 1
How to translate ancient prescriptions within your contemporary lifestyle and daily practice. How western science can prove these truths to be of great value to health and healing. What heart-brain synchronicity teaches us about the power of positive emotions?

Part 2
How do we translate the principle ‘everything is energy’ to your clients? How do the consequences of this truth influence patients’ health and well-being, and how they can use this understanding, to strengthen their vitality? What practical and science-backed tools we can use to exercise this insight. Both at home and in your clinic.

Part 3
Root yourself in spirit and assist your clients to do the same as they receive treatment.
How Being rooted in spirit opens up new intuitive pathways in the body.
Support your client in tapping into this knowledge and finding new insights on health and healing from within.

Throughout this training, we will be addressing the importance of Trauma sensitive awareness and communication.

By the end of this training, you will feel confident in ‘holding space’ for your clients and you will have a deeper understanding of how it allows for healing to happen by itself.

About the Teacher

Nienke Stoop, MD, MAc,

My name is Nienke Stoop. I am a Physician, Acupuncturist, Heart Coherence Trainer and Being in Balance Coach. But above all I am a Fertility Expert. In my practice for Integral - Positive Health I help you to discover why you don't succeed in getting pregnant and how you might be able to. I also help women who are pregnant, but have (serious) physical or emotional complaints and/or fears, to experience their pregnancy in a healthy and relaxed way. I was a very ambitious medical student. After my studies, I took my work as an emergency room physician (in the emergency room) seriously and went for it full force. But after my pregnancy, when my son was born too early and too small for his age, I began to wonder whether my working environment was healthy. For myself, for my colleagues and especially for my unborn child. I realized that during my studies I had learned a lot about illness... but very little about health and improving it.
