Welcome to WPM
Whole Person Method (WPM) is a holistic approach to care that blends assessment, manual therapy, and energy. It helps you create a more enjoyable experience for both you and your clients/patients. WPM is also focused on empathizing with the client and involving them in the process, which in turn enables them to take more ownership of their care, healing and journey to wellness.

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 individual needs at a deeper level - this is the perfect time to get started with WPM.
The Whole Person Method is currently available for Manual Practitioners and Yoga and other Movement Therapy 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.
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 manual or movement treatment session is to experience intense pressure and even pain during it. This often results in excessive discomfort for the patient/client and excessive physical work for the practitioner.
With the WPM approach to care, we challenge this assumption by making it clear to our WPM students that treatment 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 (physically, mentally and emotionally).
Of course, there are a wide range of treatment applications, techniques and approaches to apply to any given treatment or session. Although there certainly is a time and place for deep work, it is important to have clarity on when and how 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 greater level. It is about learning that it is not only the treatment process that matters, it is listening and understanding what your client needs.
One of the greatest benefits of this program 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 and use all of my abilities to help my clients feel better.

IMPACT of WPM
Our WPM trailblazers have reported increased satisfaction (for both them and their clients/patients), as a refined, elevated approach that works.
We keep hearing several key benefits from our WPM students:
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)/patient(s) in a significantly shorter time frame. The results are there!
You will be able to help your clients and patients identify and let go of blockages/restrictions occurring in the body. WPM is all about digging deeper and truly peeling away the layers. As a practitioner, you are empowered to guide your clients/patients to move beyond these blockages/restrictions and regain greater overall balance.
Care becomes more affordable for the client, as the focus on self-care and efficacy allows the client to require fewer appointments
