Wellness: Mind and Body Seminar

Room 202A

2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

by Linda Bertaut

Stressful living causes people to lose energy, while nature remedies assist in restoring it. Help your clients transform their energy by incorporating these simple energy remedies and watch them light up. In this class Bertaut not only shares years of creating potions and Chakra Balancing recipes that clients love, but demonstrates how to select and use herbs and gems in order to restore balance. Learn how to detect the “energy value” of products to see how they affect energy, clear energy in your space, make gemstone elixirs and create an herbal aroma bar.


3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.

Discover how Chakra Balancing treatments can inspire clients to come back weekly for that radiant glow from within. Watch the transformation as Bertaut performs a Chakra Balancing energy makeover and reveals the steps to perform such treatments in your practice using hands-on healing and products. The difference is transformation versus relaxation. Learn how to understand energy and the chakra system, as well as how to assess and balance energy for transformative esthetics.
