Why Learn With Us
Here at WPM, we are so incredibly passionate about what we do and love helping all of our WPM learners discover what it means to take a holistic approach in their professional practice.
Our goal is to connect with a diverse range of practitioners and to work together to strengthen the link between professional and holistic healthcare. Whether you’re first beginning your professional practice, looking to up your game, or you’ve realized you want to connect with and listen to your client’s/patient’s needs - this is the perfect time to get started with WPM.
Connect with Clients
The Whole Person Method is currently available for Manual Practitioners, Movement Therapy Practitioners, and Energy Healing Practitioners. Each course offers the same core foundation, but is tailored to each main field of practice and communicates key insights specific to each practitioner-type. For this reason, be sure to select the correct course for your profession.
Our aim is to help you create a more enjoyable experience for both you and your client, by enabling you to work with the client to meet them - wherever that may be. WPM is focused on empathizing with the client and involving them in the process, which in turn enables them to take more ownership of their care.
Bridge The Gap With
Whole Person Method
While many people - practitioners and clients alike - may hold the preconceived notion that the most effective way to conduct an effective manual or movement treatment session and for it to be working is for the client to experience intense pressure during it, often resulting in discomfort for the patient/client and excessive physical work for the practitioner.
Here at Whole Person Method, we challenge this assumption by making it clear to our WPM learners that treatment definitely does not need to be so uncomfortable, it can in fact actually be quite comfortable for the client and much less strenuous for the practitioner. Remember, there are a wide range of treatment applications, techniques and approaches to apply to any given treatment or session.
Although there is a time and place for deep work, it is important to have clarity on when to apply this technique. With WPM, you will learn how to work with your intention, your intuition, and how to connect with the client you are working with on a much deeper level. It is about learning that it is not only the treatment process that matters, it is listening and understanding what your client needs.
For energy healers, the value you will find in this course is more geared towards seeing and understanding the connection between the energy healing application you use and its effects on the physical person you are working with. The greatest benefit of this program for you is being able to accurately describe to your clients reasons why they are experiencing certain outcomes after a given session with you.
The Whole Person Method helped me to have more confidence in what I was feeling & taught me to think outside the box & use all of my abilities to help my clients feel better

Impact of WPM
Our past WPM learners have reported increased satisfaction (for both them and their clients/patients), citing WPM as a refined, elevated approach that works.
We keep hearing several key benefits from our past WPM learners:
Care becomes more affordable for the client, as the focus on self-care and efficacy allows the client to require fewer appointments
Practitioners report back that they are filling up their appointment times (and often, their waitlists) with new clients due to positive word-of-mouth
There is real therapeutic change being noticed by both the practitioner and the client(s) in a significantly shorter time frame. The results are there!
Ultimately, the WPM is all about digging deeper and peeling away the layers. You will be able to help your clients identify and let go of blockages/restrictions occurring in the body. As a practitioner, you are empowered to guide your clients/patients to move beyond these blockages/restrictions and regain greater balance
