ConTact CARE Logo_NEW.jpg

ConTact C.A.R.E Flinchlock Release provides courses for people wishing to know a way of working with family, sport and work-related injuries, becoming practitioners and also an animal care course.

  • ConTact C.A.R.E Foundation 

  • ConTact C.A.R.E Practitioners (ONLY AVAILABLE IN NGATEA)

Law dictates that all health professionals require 120 hrs. of Anatomy & Physiology training – ONLY this component can be done by correspondence as the student trains with ConTact C.A.R.E Flinchlock Release.




  • Attend a minimum of 64 hrs. of Foundation courses across all species - Human/Equine/Bovine. (Human training must include 16 hrs. of an animal course).

  • See 10 clients with follow-up sessions recorded on client sheets (20 treatments) between each Foundation course of which must be sited by the Instructor. You will not be able to attend further Foundation courses until this has been fulfilled.  I.e. a minimum of 40 clients with follow-ups is required to advance to the Practitioner Training Programme (80 treatments).

  • Pass a Foundation assessment (with any Foundation Instructor) - this will include a written test on the 9-step formula, testing the rhythm with the barrel, ensuring the pressure wall is being met and a Foundation treatment on the Instructor.

If then, this is not to a satisfactory level, you will be required to do further Foundation hours and client sheets at the discretion of your assessor. 

When competent at Foundation level, you can begin the Practitioner Training Programme of which there will be one intake per year.
