Professional Training Rooted in
Full-Body Health & Intelligence
Would you like to change the paradigm in favor of more meaningful relationships with your patients and clients while improving their participation and accountability? STREAM Certification is an advanced growth opportunity for professionals already working in somatics and healthcare.
For professionals who feel ready to put STREAM training to work ASAP, STREAM Certification is the way! You can sign-up and begin your training by declaring your intent to certify immediately, rather than waiting for the end of your first year.
STREAM Certification is perfect for midwives, doulas, pelvic PTs, wellness professionals, nurse practitioners, health coaches, therapists, and more. If you work with human beings, you encounter blockages due to scar tissue. Everybody with a body has scars - it's part of being human. From the STREAM perspective, unseen scars also occur in the emotional domain due to trauma. Whether painful or subtle, problems arise from these scars.
Scars get overlooked, yet almost everyone lives
with their consequences.
Unseen emotional aspects of scars show up in both physical and psychological therapeutic work. Whether your work is based on physical contact, conversation, or both, you'll learn how to effectively root out persistent scar-related problems.
Ellen Heed is renowned and respected as a scar tissue expert. Her pioneering work remediating pelvic floor scar tissue has been studied and celebrated worldwide. She teaches from an inclusive, holistic perspective that identifies and connects four essential physical and emotional health domains, illuminating their cause-effect relationships.
Three Certification Options
If you feel passionately invested in your work, your client's results,
and personal development, then STREAM Certification is an excellent choice for you.
STREAM is committed to changing the story of scar tissue - from benign neglect to empowered action. It's graduate-level training for professionals eager to learn and grow.
STREAM practitioners walk their walk - our body-based education
inspires you to make the changes you crave in your personal and professional life.
STREAM training offers a uniquely embodied method of learning.
We encourage you to try out all of our interventions to remediate scars, both seen and unseen. When you've walked the walk by trying STREAM for yourself, we're confident you'll want to share these cutting-edge methods with your clients and patients.

Why STREAM Certification?
... because you want to evolve your healthcare delivery to be truly integrated and holistic; to be a part of the change we all crave in this world.
... because you know that the human body and lived experience are inextricable. And that compartmentalized or reductionist approaches don't often serve.
... because you want to be able to attend to the whole person–not just a part of them.
... because you believe in addressing issues at their root cause(s).
... because you earnestly want to deliver truly effective, life-changing care.

The STREAM Health Coach Certification is for yoga teachers, physical trainers, health coaches, therapists, doulas, and anyone who works with physical and emotional scars
with limited hands-on contact.
Most people have mentally mapped their body separately from their emotions, thoughts, and beliefs. STREAM health coaches help clients understand the connection between mind and body more clearly. They also help clients understand the connection between physical and emotional pain, the capacity of their nervous system, how it functions, and how
autonomy plays a critical role in health, wellness, and relationships
(with ourselves and others).
STREAM Health Coaches use somatic education
and connected movement along with language to
communicate, connect, and build trust with their clients.

To democratize the benefits of STREAM, I believe that STREAM information should be as accessible as possible–for everyone who’s interested. That’s why I made it available as a Self-Study Course for those unable to pursue certification.
The STREAM Self-Study Program does not qualify students for STREAM Certification. STREAM Certification requires a two-plus year commitment that includes 1:1 Mentorship, Professional Supervision, and Business Coaching, as well as live in-person learning, or its equivalent. To use STREAM as part of your personal branding, you must be STREAM Certified.
Requirements for STREAM Certification are listed above.
STREAM Certification carries requirements to attend workshops (or pursue equivalency if students cannot attend workshops). Depending upon your certification track, the number of workshops required varies. Equivalence is decided individually depending on the qualifications and training
of each Certification Applicant.
We all benefit by understanding the path to whole-body health before asking others to walk it with us. STREAM practitioners walk the walk. As the effects of STREAM are felt in your own body, you're better equipped to accompany your clients' journey compassionately. To this end, the STREAM Certification Program teaches students the tools and techniques to help themselves.
After one's self-care is secured, it's time to help others.
INVEST IN YOURSELF, INVEST IN YOUR PRACTICE
Pursuing STREAM Training (and getting Certified!) is an investment in yourself and your practice.
Cost depends on your certification option, but monthly payments make it easy!
