For many of us, touch is natural and even instinctive; but learning to touch therapeutically – with healing intent – is a distinct and sophisticated skill.
This 100 hour, 11 day intensive will provide students the confidence, skills and techniques to become an excellent massage practitioner. Using proper body mechanics so that the student is centered and grounded, they will be able to massage with effortless power and grace. Emphasis is placed on stretching and proper body posture for the therapist to prevent injury while caring for the client.
Students will learn a Swedish relaxation massage and therapeutic approaches to common conditions. Body mechanics, the benefits and contraindications of massage, anatomy, proper draping, ethics and procedures for establishing a private practice will also be taught.
The safe and supportive atmosphere of this class makes learning massage a pleasurable experience. At the end of this 100 hour intensive, students will have an excellent foundation for a professional career.
