Pre-conference elective courses designed to serve the needs of our community

Our Thursday elective options are designed to support both the providers new to our ALF InterFACE community and those who strive to continue to build on the foundation of their existing education. 

For those who are joining us to learn more about ALF Therapy prior to attending our annual ALF InterFACE conference, we welcome you to attend our Introduction to ALF Therapy Course.

For existing providers, we invite you to learn about the importance of integrating Havening techniques and therapies into your ALF Therapy practice.


Intro to ALF Therapy: Frequencies, fluids, rhythms & motion

Designed for the practitioner new to ALF Therapy

Registration: 8am

Lecture: 8:30 am-3:00 pm

Lab Module: 3 pm-5 pm

Location: The View Conference Center in the Eleven South Medical Building

 Columbia, Illinois

Lunch, snacks and beverages included


To welcome new ALF Therapy providers to our annual conference,  we will be offering a one day ALF: Foundations course as an elective on the day before InterFACE 2019.  Dr. Angie Tenholder and Dr. Darick Nordstrom will be sharing some of the principles of ALF Therapy as well as ensuring that course and conference participants have the common language of Authentic ALF Therapy prior to joining the more experienced providers at the intense 2 day conference.

***The hands-on instruction available during the 2 day ALF: Foundations course will not be available for the 1 day InterFACE Foundations elective. 

For registration please contact Jamie at

This one day overview of ALF Therapy principles and practices is helpful for those who are just getting familiar with the concepts that will be shared at InterFACE 2019.

The content contained in this one day overview of ALF Therapy is delivered in more detail in a two day hands-on course offered through the ALF InterFACE Academy, Inc.

As a bonus, this course will also serve to explain the principles that are shared and synergistic between ALF Therapy and the Havening technique.  Unlike the Havening presentation at the conference, the Thursday elective will provide the opportunity for a more intimate and hands on experience with Havening and its relevancy to the OraLase technique, ALF Therapy clinical patient care and personal transformation
