Description: Somatic Mindfulness workshops (Connection, Grounding, Expansion & Radiance) expose the massage therapist to tragerwork movement, aware touch and mindfulness-based skills that potentiate their therapeutic efficacy. Application of these techniques stimulate 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. These skills complement your massage treatments by: reducing or eliminating massage therapist burnout; preparing the client's body for deep work with less strain; developing, transmitting and sharing mindful presence. In this 2-day "Expansion" class, the emphasis is on the experience of emotional integration and efficient respiration. Handles are explored from the torso, back, arms and shoulders and their interconnection with the rest of the body. Each workshop is self-contained and there are no prerequisites to take each of the themes.
