What Are Transition Zones?
The skin, our respiratory tract, our digestive system... These are the physical places of transition between the outside of our bodies and the inside.
The brain and the heart are our intellectual and emotional transition zones. They make meaning out of what we perceive and feel.
What happens to our understanding of health if we explore these areas from the perspective of transition?
Why do we need to understand these specific topics better?
Because there is no 'one size fits all'
Not for me, not for you, not for your clients, friends, or family.
When someone comes to you with questions about pain, or inflammation, or food allergies, do you just repeat the last thing you heard about this topic?
NO! ( ...at least I hope not)
First, we listen. "Tell me more..." I mean, there are so many factors at play right? So many nuances, so many things to understand.
Whether you’re a mom trying to keep her family healthy or a massage therapist trying to help your clients, or an herbalist trying to teach your students...
If you understand HOW the body works and you understand WHY it’s doing what it’s doing then you can apply whatever healing modality you have to help solve the problem.
We need to know WHY our medicine works so we can improvise. Why? Because everybody is different – because there's no "one size fits all".
That's why I made Transition Zones.
Exploring the edges of health & physiology
An in-depth online course on 7 critical topics, by Tammi Sweet
So you can access this valuable knowledge
I come from a background in science, rigorous academic study – but never connected to the sterile dispassionate way of thinking and talking about our bodies. Life is a miracle! Our body is a miracle!
Still, I love to pursue knowledge, and I have a knack for studying hard, gathering references, and then organizing this information into entertaining lectures.
This course is the culmination of my life's work.
I keep my ear to the ground, researching and absorbing the latest information on these topics. I'm thinking about new conditions in our environment, new perspectives and the stories we're telling each other.
So what are these topics?
In-Depth Learning on 7 Topics
Understand the physiology, holistic interactions, and have unlimited access to the online lessons and materials. Here are the core topics included in Transition Zones:
Here's What You'll Get in Transition Zones
"Tammi has a special gift of being able to distill science into an easy to comprehend language. I left with a deeper understanding of physiology and lots of new information about inflammation, allergies, and many other things" ~ Lisa Schwartz
About the Instructor (that's me!)
Hi, I'm Tammi Sweet,
I’ve poured my life’s work into understanding, and then communicating, how the body is a miracle – and helping massage therapists and herbalists have better access to this knowledge.
Through my Online A&P class I've helped hundreds of students become more confident in their work – whether it's with clients, communicating with doctors, or even just exploring the depths of WHY and HOW healing happens.
Now, Transition Zones is the most detailed and in-depth program I've created. When you join, you'll have access to high-level, academic material presented in an entertaining, accessible way.

Understanding the Healing Power of Inflammation
Inflammation is one of our primary defenses in the body and is a major cause/contributing factor to almost all illness and disease. How can this be so?
If you’re asking that question, come and take an in-depth look at the entire process. It will help you make informed decisions concerning when and if you need to alter the process.
We will cover all of the physiology of inflammation including biochemistry within the cell. How and why inflammation is beneficial, when it is not beneficial, and finally we will discuss an anti-inflammatory lifestyle, which includes our friends, the herbs.
Heart Coherence, Relaxation & Health
Finally, western science is beginning to understand the greater workings of the heart as an organ of perception and as a central intelligence of the body.
We will explore the latest physiological evidence of the heart’s leadership edge in health and well being as the conductor of coherence within the body and a myriad of other jobs you may have had no idea about.
Finally we will explore heart-centering techniques and how they can lead to lower blood pressure, increased relaxation, greater energy and perhaps save the planet.
"This course is essential to our evolution. I specifically liked Tammi’s holistic approach in understanding the stress response and the benefits of tuning into the heart messages. The heart is an energy field, not just a blood pump." ~ Ingrid Callenberger
How and Why Cannabis works…. Our Endogenous Cannabinoid System
As herbalists we all know when giving a weed walk in a new place, the richest areas are the transitions zones, the margins, the edges. In this light, we will examine a much maligned, misunderstood and misrepresented plant we have pushed to the margins, Cannabis.
It is time for us, the herbalists, to reclaim the proper uses of this medicine in our materia medica. Time for us to help educate people about how, when, and why cannabis works (and it’s not a cure for everything!).
Our talk will begin with the not well-known or publicized internal Endogenous Cannabinoid System, and its physiology and functions. Finally we will discuss “right relationship” with this master plant and brainstorm ways to assist clients in creating ways to honor this sacred and healing plant.
The Physiology Pathway for Pain and the Correlating Herbs
Many of our clients come in with both acute and chronic pain.
The best way to assist them in their healing path is to have a deeper understanding of the mechanism of pain, the reason for it physiologically and ways of relieving it when necessary.
This class will explore the pain pathway from the origin, all the way up to the recognition in the brain. Next the class will discuss the different types of pain; acute, chronic, nociceptive, inflammatory, dysfunctional and neuropathic, their etiology and mechanisms. Finally the class will explore the latest findings in pain research, the myriad of methods to interrupt the pain pathway, how these methods work and finally their indications and contraindications.
"...even the things I already know from years of self-study are made clearer and more applicable to my work by Tammi's fine teaching. For me this online course is time and money well spent!" ~ Robin Rose Bennett
Gut Inflammation & Food Intolerance
Since inflammation is the only way to heal any injury in the body, what happens when the food we are eating is causing inflammation and injury to our gut wall?
We persist in a state of chronic inflammation that does not stay localized to the intestinal lining. We will examine the etiology of food intolerance and how it leads to leaky gut, chronic inflammation and many other chronic diseases.
Discussion will also include the anatomy & physiology of the gut lining and the vast interface of the immune system living there. We of course, will round out the discussion with ways of healing the injury and moving towards health.
Asthma, Allergies and Respiratory Health
Let’s face it, there’s more allergy and asthma now then there’s ever been.
Why is our Immune system overreacting? What are ways to help quiet the system’s need to defend against everything?
We will take the time to discuss enough of the Immune system to understand the physiology of asthma and allergies and a few others. We will also spend time discussing herbal and lifestyle interventions that help.
Advanced Physiology of Skin
One of the most common ailments for everyone is some sort of skin condition.
Rashes, cuts, bruises, infection, and allergic reactions are all a response of our largest organ, our skin, to some trauma.
In this class we will examine the anatomy & physiology of the skin itself, the ways it is injured and of course, the way it heals itself. Since the skin is a major interface for the herbal world, we will discuss the herbs that help heal the skin and how they do it.
What My Students Are Saying...
“I love Tammi's way of bringing complicated subjects to life in an accessible and fun way. She never patronizes or talks down to us. She just invites us in through a kind of magical door.”
~ Marlaine Darfler, Massage Therapist
"Focusing on our hearts is something that is viewed culturally as less important than other healing modalities. It is even viewed as weakness. This course connects the physical with the emotional and the spiritual – using science!
I specifically love the Freeze-Frame technique taught in her Heart Coherence Class.
~ Donna Sheinbach
I would recommend this course to any wellness professional!! These courses offer real life application to real life problems we and our clients all face in the environments we live in and what we put in/on our bodies.
~ Jim Mollosky, MS, LMT, ATC, CSCS

More Reflections From Students
"I have taken anatomy and physiology at the high school level, at a junior colleges nursing school (Temple College), and at Finger Lakes School of Massage. I also obtained a minor in brain science and cognition (Wells College) and this lecture series was still informative with the latest research.
The information presented in this lecture series is beautifully sculpted to really educate healers on the anatomy of so many systemic issues that our society has to face given our lifestyle.
Tammi is an outstanding educator who has more similes and metaphors to aid in understanding that I have ever heard from any science teacher in the past 10 years of my work within higher education. It is a blessing that she is willing to share all that she knows."
~ Amber Telfer, Massage Therapist
"Price was right, topic was right, teacher was right.
This course was life altering, and I don't mean to be over dramatic either.
Ok, one juicy piece of wisdom I walked away with. The brain can't come up with new ideas on it's own. It knows what it knows, and it knows a hell of a lot. But to take what we know in our brain and to formulate it into totally new thought... we need to get out of our brain and into our heart space. That happens when we sleep, dream, walk, meditate. You know – waking up in the morning and the problem plaguing you before sleep has found a solution. This lecture was rich with wisdom, fun facts and good life lessons."
"These classes are chock full of pertinent and valuable information while being engaging and fun. Tammi has a special gift of being able to distill science into an easy to comprehend language. I left with a deeper understanding of physiology and lots of new information about inflammation, allergies, and many other things"
"I am a licensed massage therapist, certified athletic trainer, and certified strength and conditioning specialist and I would recommend this course to any wellness professional!! These courses offer real life application to real life problems we and our clients all face in the environments we live in and what we put in/on our bodies.
I took the whole lecture series and would love to have as many people as possible watch the series. Tammi teaches in a way that bridges the scientific research side and how to apply it in real our own lives."
Nothing could stop me from buying one of Tammi’s courses. I can’t get enough!
All of Tammi's courses have reinforced for me how brilliantly designed this world really is. The signals that we receive… from our brain, our heart, our gut… all of these signals should be stoplights in front of our faces telling us to go, stop, slow down or, sometimes, to change our behavior.
All of the information is there. We just need to pay attention to it better.
My heart has grown, my confidence has grown, my appreciation has grown, and my desire to learn as much as I can and to share this "wellth" with others is insatiable now!
