Level 1: Certified Cross Mapping Method Practitioner

For Coaches – Holistic Practitioners – Manual Therapists – Managers and Leaders 

What is Cross Mapping?

The Cross Mapping Method, which is a confluence of neuroscience, mindfulness, and energy medicine, allows you to help clients sustainably re-pattern physical pain, joint stiffness, and muscle weakness as well as emotional challenges such as stress, anxiety, depression, and debilitating fear.  Your clients will be able to think clearly, move freely, and feel empowered to take action towards their goals with purpose and confidence. Using the principles of energy medicine, but not needing to put “hands-on,” this inquiry technique is simple to use and works with anyone, anywhere, every time, giving you predictable results with even the most challenging clients. 

Coaches and holistic professionals love using Cross Mapping because it gives them a systemized way to navigate their client’s most difficult emotions.  Manual therapists report that Cross Mapping helps their client’s muscles soften, making it easier on their own hands and bodies as they affect client change.  Our students have a saying about Cross Mapping that, “When you work the process, the process works…. every single time.” 

I use the Cross Mapping Method with my PT clients as a tool when I’m curious about potential emotional barriers to their physical “issues.”  I had NO idea how to do this before and it was super frustrating.  I don’t know, to date, of any other method that gets real results (and as quickly) and comes from the client themselves as Cross Mapping.”

Learn the cutting-edge trauma-sensitive approach that uncovers anyone’s innate motivation.

As coaches, we have a responsibility to minimize the damage that can potentially be caused by the personal development industry. Over 90% of people have directly experienced trauma which means it’s impossible to stay away from people who need trauma-sensitive approaches to coaching. 

Difficult clients? They won’t be difficult for you when you know Cross Mapping. In fact, you will be the sought-after coach who knows how to work with anyone because you have a calming presence and predictable outcomes with any client.

    When you use Cross Mapping you can soften the tissue without having to do anything at all. Stop working so hard and create raving clients who love to come back for more!

    Feel like the neighborhood bartender? Of course, you do! People reveal all kinds of secrets and stress to their massage or manual therapists. Most therapists have no idea what to do with that personal information and think… “Should I go back to school to learn psychology?” No need when you know Cross Mapping!

    Managers and Leaders

      If you’ve ever fantasized about bringing holistic and alternative medicine practices to the office (because you know they work)… now you can! But don’t worry… no one will know… because when you use Cross Mapping it will be invisible! 😊 Shhhh! Your secret will be safe with us.

      When you use Cross Mapping, you’ll be an amazing people person with powerful leadership skills. A sought-after expert in helping people solve their problems. And no one will have to know you’re using energy medicine to work your magic. 

      What I appreciate most about SBMC is this model is client-driven and client-centered. Traditional case management directs clients through the established process that’s usually a “one size fits all” approach. However, coaching guides clients in making their own choices, determining their own values, and charting their own course that will lead them towards a divine purpose. The Cross Mapping Method expands awareness with respect to our commonalities rather than our differences.

      I use it all the time within the prison system where I work. I find Cross Mapping helpful when I’m facilitating a restorative circle between a “victim” and “perpetrator”. After the victim expresses their experience of the harm resulting from the “perpetrator’s” actions, I then ask the “perpetrator” to describe an experience from their life that resulted in comparable feelings to the “victim’s”. Once there’s awareness of the alignment in feelings between “victim” and “perpetrator” I will then guide them both through Cross Mapping and it’s very powerful.

I use Cross Mapping as one of my very first “go-to” tools with my clients. It’s a dual empowerment tool. It is a process that I do with my clients and also teach them to do it for themselves. Its biggest impact is that it directly shows the ease of choice and it is very effective.”

          What people are saying about using Cross Mapping…

          SBMC is a coaching methodology derived from holistic therapeutic principles created by experts with over 50 years of experience in the field of bodymind medicine. Somatic Coaching is the next wave in personal and professional development. Learn from the best!

          Before SBMC,  my practice as a PT/ Craniosacral therapist was missing…” something”. I was feeling drained and my hands were feeling the extra effort I put in to get the same results. I was tired and questioning my path. What I have realized is that my path needed to go inward. Now I feel more aware and better-taken care of. My practice has enlivened! I am having fun!…both with the tools and with seeing the curiosity in my patient’s eyes as they try something new.
