Both branches of the HT start with the same workshop. The aim is to give the students a gentle introduction to the Horstmann Technique.

Should you wish to become a practitioner and give HT treatments you will continue with Practitioner’s workshops.

However, if you would prefer to use HT for your personal development, you continue with the Horstmann Personal Journey experiences.

Introductory Horstmann (IH)

This is for those wishing to treat themselves and their family members.

HT treatments are strong and deep on all physical, emotional and spiritual levels. The aim with the IH workshop is to give the student a soft start with the HT. The workshop aims mainly at self-treatment but also includes some basic form of treatment so you can offer family and friends. IH is a stand-alone workshop that doesn’t requires any prior knowledge.

This workshop takes about 10 hours during which the student gets to know the background of its founder, Trish Trowbridge, and learns and practices the self-treatment techniques for the Ileo-Sacral Release, Arm-Shoulder Release and Foot Release.

After Introductory Horstmann

If you would like to learn more about the Horstmann Technique after you’ve done the Introductory Horstmann workshop there are two branches.

For those who wants to work as a professional Horstmann therapist and give Horstmann clinic treatments you do the Practitioner’s branch.

If you wish to use the HT for your self-development you do the Personal Journey workshops.

You can of course combine the two.

If you would like to work with animals, you can do that training after the IH and learn to become an HT animal therapist.

PRACTITIONERS (certification)

The learning continues after Introductory Horstmann with

  • Ileo-Sacral Release (2 days)
  • Arm-Shoulder Release (1 Day)
  • Foot Release (1 day)
  • Self-Sabotage Release (2 days)

Before the Practitioners Accreditation workshop the student must have given at least 20 documented HT treatments and have received themselves at least 10 HT treatments. The accreditation workshop is both practical and theoretical over 2 days. After the workshop you will be able to treat for example neck and shoulder problems, sciatica, lumbago, stress, RSI, frozen shoulder and tennis elbow.


These processes are for people who wants to continue their spiritual journey and personal growth. The workshops are relatively short but considering eventual healing effects it is recommended to have a rest day after a workshop.

There are no rules for participating in any PJ workshop and the time needed to process every step is individual. It is a personal journey you do with the help of a Facilitator.

If you have participated in some of the Practitioners trainings (at least ISR) you can increase your HT competence with these subtle energy processes whenever you like.

The following process are included in Personal Journey branch:

  • Aura Drainage and Point 8
  • The Key
  • Genetic Sabotage Release
  • Karmic Release
  • Seven Golden Points
  • Thymus Release

Karmic Release, Seven Golden Points and Thymus Release are held as RETREAT workshops.

Treating animals.

If you would like to work with animals after Introductory Horstmann you can learn to become a Animal Practitioner.
