Michelle and Corinne 2020 - offer an an opportunity to try a short experience of Holstic Pulsing - at the Body-Mind-Spirit Expo Christchurch.

HP Introduction opportunities

We welcome you to try Holistic Pulsing, whatever your body-work background; often the first experience of this very gentle modality, and you are hooked! You might be:

  • a curious novice pulser or pulsee
  • looking for self growth, personal healing
  • a family wanting an effective calming resource for each other
  • a caregiver, wanting to add a soothing clothed resource to your caring 'kete'
  • a health practitioner, with some or little previous body-mind experience, upskilling or fulfilling professional development workshop requirements.

The best way to sample HP is with a registered NZ HP Guild practitioner, where you'll receive a highly trained Integrative Holistic Pulsing experience. For further information about HHT workshops, see here. For information on HHT registered tutors and attending pre-workshop "tasters", please see opportunities to experience pulsing, on this page, to find an intro-pulse-day close to you, or invite a tutor to your town!


Other HP tasters?

Some of our members love sharing this gentle modality, and we encourage them to offer introductory day-play-shops, in their local areas.
Please note: These are not training workshops where you gain a qualification, but an opportunity to ’taste’ Holistic Pulsing and enjoy the experience. You could then choose to train as a practitioner with Holistic Health Training, presently the only NZQA accredited trainer of HP in New Zealand.

A module 1 HHT Holistic Pulsing introductory training is $395. It includes a two day workshop, tutorials, sessions, case studies and a written assignment. You can choose to progress through two further modules for a full NZQA accredited qualification.  
* Costs for "tasters and 'introductions to HP' are set by individual tutors and hosts, please enquire with each tutor.

Upcoming short tasters offer people the chance to try out Holistic Pulsing. And meet the HHT trainers you will learn from.  HP is offered at Fairs and Expos, (Covid willing), see our upcoming Expos and Fairs on this page.

Introductory personal sessions or tasters with our HHT registered teachers, anytime, (usually 15-30 minutes) costs set by individual tutors.
