Applicants should have experience of Body Stress Release. If you have not experienced Body Stress Release before, it is recommended that potential applicants visit a local practitioner for a series of 'releases' before applying.
The practitioner will be able to discuss details of the course, about Body Stress Release as a career option and you will experience first-hand, the benefits of BSR.Certification
Instruction is in the form of lecturing/teaching, demonstration and practical experience. The class size is limited to 24 students as a great deal of one-to-one teaching is provided.
