CP3 Case Study Preparation Online Workshop
Year 4 commences with this online workshop designed to prepare students to pass the Case Study required to enter C.H.E.K Practitioner Level 3.
Up to this point all students, have gone through rigorous assessments and exams to show their competency in the C.H.E.K Institute’s advanced Training system.
But before being accepted into C.H.E.K Practitioner Level 3, each student must submit a case study of using ALL of their CHEK skills on one of their patients. The case study is then analysed by Paul Chek himself or a member of the CHEK Faculty.
This on-line workshop shows you how to plan, build and present your case study to save you countless number of hours. It’s also a fantastic workshop by itself, to see how all of the components of the CHEK system fully integrate with one another!

Since a patient’s posture more often reflects a pictorial of the patient (present and past), and because the neurological, biomechanical and physiological interactions are vast, this chapter will attempt to demonstrate some of the distant effects of posture on craniofacial pain. The main premise is the needs for a multidisciplinary treatment approach to correct a postural etiology and the etiology of aberrant posture. For readers interested in honing their skills of postural assessment and treatment, the reference list is abundant with pertinent resources.

Successfully realizing your legacy means understanding yourself and those in your life deeply.
One of Paul’s discoveries over years of holistic health practice has been that real listening is understanding.
The more you are able to really hear your body and your needs, to truly hear the wants, fears, desires and dreams of those in your life, the more you will understand about yourself and your loved ones.
Listening Skills Development will equip you with a number of powerful listening techniques, including:
- Body Listening - how to interpret the ways that Chakra imbalances affect communication
- Mind Listening - understand how values memes color the ways we speak
- Heart Listening - learn to create an open and welcoming space to communicate emotions without judgment
- Soul Listening - discover how to connect with the deepest part of yourself
- Emptying the Bone - learn how to clear your mind of all distractions so you can be fully present
Put these techniques to use and it's like having a direct, unfiltered line of connection to whomever you're communicating with!
Working with Medical Professionals Online Workshop
On completing C.H.E.K Practitioner Level, 3 many Practitioners start working with complex patients within their own clinics or as a consultant within other medical facilities.
In this workshop we share some essential tips and guidelines when working with medical professionals.
The C.H.E.K Practitioner Level 3 learns how to assess the body in accordance with Paul Chek’s Totem Pole system of evaluation and correction. Based on developmental and survival reflexes, the C.H.E.K Practitioner Level 3 learns to assess key cranial nerve functions, the temporomandibular joint and bite function, cervical, and shoulder biomechanics. Specific orthopedic tests, length/tension assessments, stretches, mobilizations, and corrective exercise techniques are thoroughly covered. The C.H.E.K Practitioner Level 3 also learns the emotional and mental connections to why people don’t heal. The C.H.E.K Practitioner Level 3 is an excellent team member in any medical practice handling complex cases, and on any amateur or professional sports team where technical approaches to exercise and well-being are needed.
C.H.E.K Practitioner Level 3 Learning Objectives:
- Understand how to correctively perform a comprehensive, full-body assessment of key biological systems.
- Learn how to prioritize therapeutic protocols based on the client’s immediate needs and financial and time commitments.
