Friday (8am to 5pm); Saturday, (8am to 5pm); and Sunday, (8am to 4pm)
Class Type: This is a 3-day intensive live course held at our home in Reading, Michigan. Students will attend a blend of classroom and practical application working side-by-side with Andrew and Bobbi Jo throughout the entire weekend.
NOTE: NEHC Academy could be moving to another location in the near future. We will contact you with any location changes as soon as we have confirmation of our new facility. These changes could affect your nearest airport and lodging.
There are no pre-requisites for this class. Students do not need any prior knowledge of weighted tuning forks. We do not provide any materials for pre-learning prior to the Intensive.
This class will focus on fundamental methods and techniques for using weighted tuning forks for resolution of physical ailments. We cover knowledge and application skills used in our New Earth Vibration Therapy Program with the following training modules.
Fundamentals of Vibration Therapy: This is the prerequisite training for all New Earth Vibration Therapy training. We focus on proper grip, strike, pressure, and placement based on palpation and feedback core skills required for Tuning Fork Vibration Therapy. We also cover the knowledge needed to understand the basic concepts of fluid pressure and tissue dysfunction which is a core fundamental of our therapeutic approach.
Pain Management and Resolution (VFRT) Specialty Area: In this module, we apply our fundamental principles to the application of Vibration Therapy with a focus on rapid pain relief and resolution of single joint mobility restrictions. This specialty area is known as Vibrational Fascia Release Technique (VFRT) with an expectation of relief within one treatment.
Head and Neck Specialty Area: In this module, we apply fundamental principles with a focus on ailments and conditions within the neck and head region caused by fluid pressure and lack of fluid drainage through the neck. We introduce a unique starting protocol known as the “Neck Flush” designed to relieve fluid pressure within the neck prior to focused treatments in targeted areas throughout the head and neck regions.
Health and Beauty Specialty Area: In this module, we apply fundamental principles with a focus on both the head and body for dermatological conditions and tissue volume (fat and fluid) reduction. Dermatology covers a wide range of “beauty” concerns including wrinkles, stretch marks, acne, bags, jowls, smokers lines, laugh lines, deep lines, hair loss, scars, and rashes. We cover principles of “fat reduction” through methods and techniques designed to release both trapped fluids and lipids within the fat cells to reduce tissue circumference.
In the classroom, students will be able to practice methods and techniques on other students throughout the weekend with the guidance of Andrew and Bobbi Jo Weaver. Our curriculum consists of a combination of knowledge, concepts, and skills with a variation between classroom work and practical application. We do not focus on “paint-by-numbers” application of putting the tuning fork in specific locations but rather rely on the knowledge and skills to apply in unique clinical situations.
NEHC Academy has the right to modify any part of training based on the needs of the class.
All costs for travel and lodging are the responsibility of the student. Class ends at 4pm on Sunday, so please schedule your return flight accordingly.
Location: New Earth Healing Center and NEHC Academy are now located at our home on Hemlock Lake in Reading, Michigan. The nearest commercial airports are Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport located on I-94 (distance 102 miles 1hr 42mins) and Capital Region International Airport in Lansing, Michigan (distance 86 miles 1hr 24mins). A rental car is recommended if you are traveling by air. We do live in the country, so public transportation is not an option.
Lodging: There are several popular brand hotels in Coldwater, Michigan at Interstate 69 Exit 13. Coldwater is roughly 20 miles away from our home and the closest location with a selection of hotels. We are not familiar with AirBnB in the towns in our area.
Food: We will serve lunch all three days. We live in a rural (country) area, so traveling to a location for a meal in the afternoon is not an option. If you have food allergy or dietary concerns, we recommend you bring your own food and we can keep it in our refrigerator. Snacks and hot/cold drinks will be available throughout the day.
Due to the limited seating in our location, there is one payment option for this training with a full payment required at registration.
Payment Option One: A one-time full payment of $900 USD due at registration. No other payments are required.
Refund Policy: All payments are non-refundable, but they can be applied to the next available class for the same trainer.
Additional Costs: There are no additional costs for books or equipment for the class other than the requirement to have a weighted 128hz tuning fork and gem feet available for class which you can purchase on your own prior to class. Please see the Required Equipment section below for more details. We do not charge extra for class manuals, and we do not generally sell products to students during the class.
Since we are holding this class in our home, this event is considered a small private gathering. Bobbi Jo and I will not be wearing masks during our class considering that we live in the location where we are teaching and it would be impossible to completely sterilize our living space and maintain total sterilization throughout the class.
As of June 22nd, all mask and gathering mandates have been lifted.
You may choose to wear a mask during class if you feel it is appropriate. We will be in very close proximity to each other throughout the weekend including placing hands on each other during palpation practice and placements. If you have concerns over spreading germs and viruses through touching surfaces or being inside the minimum social distance, we recommend waiting to attend a class at a time in the future when you are more comfortable.
State Covid-19 Mandates:
As of June 22nd, the mask and gathering mandates have been lifted.
Upon completion of this Intensive Class, students will receive a certification for a VFRT Therapist along with two Specialty Area completion certificates for Head & Neck and Health & Beauty Specialty Areas. The VFRT Certification and two specialty area certificates are part of a larger New Earth Vibration Therapy Master Certification Program.
NEHC Academy may cancel the class due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Michigan is located in a cold-weather climate with unpredictable weather patterns in the winter months (November through March). In the event of a class cancellation, NEHC Academy staff will update all students as soon as possible. All deposits and class payments will be transferred to the next available class for both a cancellation from NEHC Academy or the student. NEHC Academy and New Earth Healing Center LLC are not responsible for any fees incurred by the student for last minute class cancellation.
