The Athro Technique - Workshop

Athro Therapy is the amazingly easy and effective healing modality using physical percussion to create kinetic energy, blended with aspects of Quantum Mechanics and principles of Cranial Osteopathy.  It quickly penetrates the entire body of your client giving amazing results from the release of restrictions in the facia. To add this powerful new tool to your therapeutic modalities, attend this workshop!

Applying the Athro Technique to any healing modality greatly increases your ability to deliver powerful results to your clients.


Manual therapeutic tapping has been used for centuries by many cultures worldwide, yet without an understanding of why it works so efficiently in reducing pain throughout the body. Osteopathic medicine has been using a Mechanized form of this therapy for pain management for over 45 years. Recent medical research has identified that restrictions within curtain systems of the body (nervous, muscular, spinal, lymph, and especially the fascia) contributes greatly to chronic pain associated with such conditions as MS, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Chronic Fatigue and a host of other dysfunctions that cause poor quality of life.


Restrictions within the fascia in particular can result in chronic pain, restrictions to body movement and organ function. Fascia is the connective tissue that surrounds and covers every muscle and organ in the body. Fascia connective tissue is continuous throughout the body and carries electrical current as does the central nervous system. It is in constant communication with the central nervous system and is an integral part of it.


Using the energy produced by this Modality, the Therapist stimulates the release of restrictions in the fascia. This kind of release allows the fluids and electrical properties of tissues and organs to flow normally again, restoring healthy equilibrium.


Now by adapting the techniques used by many cultures over the centuries to the principles of modern medicine and especially the laws of Quantum Mechanics, Bodyworkers can bring a new level of pain management to their clients.




Testimonies from the use of Athro Therapy.

"I am always looking for new techniques and skills to add to my healing practice, and was wonderfully surprised at how fun, easy and EFFECTIVE Athro Therapy is.  Jim is an engaging instructor and made the class entertaining and enjoyable as well as very educational. My clients have received considerable relief from pain, and we have a lot of fun with it too. I am looking forward to learning more about the Athro Technique as well in the future!"      T R - massage therapist, Reiki Master/practitioner, EMF Balancing Technique® practitioner in Montana

"A serious car accident has left me with reoccurring whiplash symptoms which are hard to relieve, so I am especially grateful for how effective these sessions are for my neck, back, shoulders, hips and the over-all pain and stiffness I have.

 Athro Therapy in particular seems to loosen and "lighten" my sore muscles and give me an overall feeling of well-being and increased flexibility"

       NLM, from Australia.

"We have found a powerful and positive response from our clients after experiencing the effects of Athro Therapy. It cuts through the amount of work and time required to get the desired releases within their body to relieve intense pain. We are excited about this "new" modality and are anxious to learn more advanced classes when they become available.”      

R and D, Bodywork practitioners from Cottonwood, AZ.


"I was scheduled for surgery to correct sever incontinence when I received four sessions of Athro Therapy. I experienced immediate relief and after several sessions found myself completely free of the condition needing no surgery after all."        MJ from the Bitterroot Valley, MT.

"After trying many types of therapies, including standard physical therapy, Acupuncture and Chiropractic, from which I received only limited reduction of symptoms, I thought I would have to spend the rest of my life in debilitating pain as the result of an auto accident.
 Athro Therapy was recommended by other practitioners and I finally found marked progress in pain management through it. Thank you for giving me my life back!"
     MW from the Bitterroot Valley, MT.




About the workshop


Attendees will learn about the history of the therapy and current practice and tools used in modern Osteopathic Medicine. The latest information of the true function and relationship of the Fascia and the nervous system.

 You will have hands on instruction in the use of Athro Therapy using manual tools (included) in the releasing of fascia restrictions.


As part of the curriculum, the class will be taught about using the Athro Technique in the healing process. This technique blends laws of Quantum Mechanics with the science of Cranial Osteopathy. It will reduce the time it takes and the effectiveness of all your healing modalities.

Wear comfortable loose-fitting clothing and bring materials for note taking.

An instruction manual and a set of tapping tools are included in the tuition of the workshop.



Information about the instructor, James Tree-Gilmore, CST, LMT.

Jim received his training in CranioSacral© Therapy from the Upleger Institute in Florida and studied therapeutic techniques of Cranial Osteopathy, physiology restriction release and cellular memory release for eight years with the well-known Osteopath and instructor of Cranial Osteopathy, Dr. T. Feeney, DO.

  In 2007, Jim helped to create a program that blended modern oncology practices (chemotherapy, radiation and surgery) with alternative practices (acupuncture, massage, Reiki, CST, and hypnotism, etc.) into a very successful Integrated Oncology clinic.

While presenting at an Aboriginal Cultural festival held on Bruny Island in Tasmania, Jim met with Aboriginal elders and healers. Later he spent several weeks staying with them in the heart of Australia learning about healing techniques that date back to before the Ice Age. Healing with nothing but thought. Upon Jim’s return to the US he coincidentally met two teachers of Quantum Mechanics. He realized the modern science described the exact same way to heal by thought. There was one missing link and Jim realized how to connect this process through his training in the therapeutic effects of Cranial Osteopathy.

By putting all three things together Jim has spent the last 5 years perfecting the Athro Technique and Athro Therapy. Jim is the author of two books, “How to live a Charmed Life, The Athro Technique” and “The Way of the Sacred Pipe”.  Jim also has over 30 years’ experience as a Senior Biomedical Engineer with several of the largest medical instrumentation companies in the world and is a member of the International Association of Health Practitioners.
