Testimonials from Anatomy for Healers - Level 1


"This class was everything I had hoped for!  The anatomy was a great refresher for me - it has been a long time since I’ve studied it.  Loved, loved, loved the new techniques we used. Looking forward to using these with my clients.  The notebook provided will be a great resource for many years to come.

If you work with energy and would like to go deeper, take the Anatomy for Healers
® class!  It was informative, fun, and inspiring!"
- Lynn R Anderson, RN, MSN, HTCP, Annapolis, MD

"As the author of The Encyclopedia of Energy Medicine, I have taken numerous classes in the various healing modalities and studied over 80 different disciplines. The very best of them, for the experienced healer, is Anatomy for Healers ® . This workshop heightened my awareness of the depth and range of healing open to me as a healer. Until I took this class, I thought of the body as whole, and had not taken into consideration the sum of its parts. It did not occur to me that each of the organs of the body has its own set of chakras and its own energy field. I also learned how to feel for the different systems of the body such as the circulatory, skeletal, and lymphatic systems. Sue Hovland, founder of this program, has a fabulous sense of humor and makes an otherwise dry subject a whole lot of fun! The power point presentation, movies, and various props, add another dimension as well. I enthusiastically recommend this class! I can't wait to take Level 2!"

Sue Hovland’s class has deepened my Healing Touch work with my clients--they ask me to add these techniques to their treatments. Five years after taking the class, I still use the techniques from the workbook on a regular basis.The endocrine system balance is great for my menopausal female clients and teenage athletes who have irregular periods, as well as beneficial for my “stressed out” clients. For seasonal immune suppressed illnesses, the “Immune Boost” works great to build up their immune system. It teaches self care for clients that takes them only 10 minutes. I highly recommend Anatomy for Healers to all healers!

"I cannot begin to find the words to describe the power of the Healing Touch, that Nancy L. has done on me since I was diagnosed with breast cancer in my liver, lungs and spine last March, 2012. At the time of my diagnosis there was a large mass in my liver, many lesions on my spine and small lesions in my lungs. Nancy targeted my liver during these healing sessions. I often felt heaviness being pulled out of the liver. And I always felt so much better after a Healing Touch session.

In early December, 2012, a PetScan revealed that the large mass in my liver had dissolved. There are new smaller lesions, but my oncologist feels these are parts of the large mass and that they are in the process of dissolving also.

Since I am also a certified Healing Touch practitioner, I believe in the power of Healing work and to me the dissolving of the liver mass is a testimonial to the power of the work that we do."

Testimonials from Vibratory Grid Activation

"I have been lucky enough to take all three levels of Sue Hovland's Anatomy for Healers® and most recently the Vibratory Grid class.  All of these classes have changed and deepened my understanding of energy healing. Sue Hovland is a master teacher and truly inspirational."

- Jude Kehoe LPN, HTCP, Meditation Instructor
University of Oregon Health Center

"Sue, thanks again for the Vibratory Grid Activation class! 

I found this work to be very sacred. The class remarked on the presence of angels in the room while we were working. At one point, I felt my pineal center light up with golden energy and my vibration was raised to a level I had not previously experienced, while still remaining very present in my body.  As we completed the grid activation, a holy presence filled my cells.  I knew I was being rejuvenated and that my deepest longing was now just around the corner. The experience was like "leveling up" in a game: I am now more connected with my Infinite Self, more of a healing presence, more connected to Guidance. Thank you!"

- Kimberly Smith, HTCP, RM, Virginia Beach, VA
