Somatic Mindfulness - Fundamentals

Sunday, Sept 10th

9 AM - 12 PM

3 CEUs


Please arrive early, wear comfortable clothes and bring a set of sheets/blanket.


Course Description:


Learn the theory & techniques to complement your massage treatments by reducing or eliminating the potential of massage therapist burnout and/or related injuries; preparing the client's body for deep work with less strain; developing, transmitting and sharing mindfulness in action.


Somatic Mindfulness workshops (Fundamentals, Connection, Grounding, Expansion & Radiance) expose the massage therapist to tragerwork and mindfulness-based skills that potentiate their therapeutic efficacy. Application of the techniques stimulates the brain's neuroplasticity, introduces new neural sensory information and activates positive neuromuscular changes in clients. Inherent to the method is support to the therapist's own self-care which ensures career longevity.


In Fundamentals, we explore the theory and experience of the power of this work's essential principles. Each workshop is self-contained and there are no prerequisites to take each of the themes.
