Chapter 8:Biological Terrain and Body’s pH
The technology of body compassing (Bio-Energy scanning), understanding the body’s biological terrain (chemical makeup of the body), and human physiology (the mechanical, physical, bioelectrical, and biochemical functions) present diverse opportunities for other value-added services that Trichologists can offer.
Each year, the National Trichology Training Institute (NTTI) certifies clinical practitioners who become leaders in trichology, commonly combating the hair loss epidemic as it relates to health, wellness, sickness and disease. Our trichology program advances careers and takes practitioners leaps beyond the stylist chair.
Trichology is the scientific, biological, health and wellness approach to achieving healthy bodies, ultimately leading to healthy hair.
