Service Description

8:30 AM - 6:00 PM Saturday, May 11th Please ARRIVE EARLY, wear comfortable clothes and bring a set of sheets (Tables are already provided). 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. The basis of this class in particular, is the experience of grounding by promoting proprioceptive rooting for balance and stability. Feet, legs and hips, and their interconnection with the rest of the body, are the focus of this training.
