Practitioner Skills

Here is an article I wrote on five practitioner skills. I originally learned these from my teachers, Anna & John Chitty. They are some of the most useful basic skills that are, unfortunately, missing from most healing art educations. These skills are powerfully effective for the new and seasoned practitioner. These skills take you step by step through the essential pillars in fostering a potent space of healing. At the end there is a section especially suited to practitioners who use differential diagnosis, such as Chinese medicine practitioners, as a part of their tradition.

These “practitioner skills” could as easily be called life skills and applied by anyone, practitioner or not. If you ever find that you ever feel lost in the treatment room, or in life, read this!
