Integrative Bodywork Concepts

Every once in a while, an awareness emerges that some particular concept or technique could change everything. I have experienced many such realizations over the past few decades and have integrated them as best I could into my work and my life. Now I want to share some of those powerful breakthroughs with you!

This six-hour, live-online class is designed to help you understand the strategies and mechanisms which underlie my integrative approach to craniosacral therapy and bodywork in general. Learning and integrating these principles cost me hundreds of hours and many thousands of dollars. This class can provide some shortcuts in your own continuing education journey. Participants will weave concepts like presence, grounding, and self-awareness into the evaluation and treatment of fascia, physiological movement, and the vagus nerve. Techniques will be practiced on your own body or on a volunteer. What you learn in this seminar will deepen your understanding of hands-on healing and boost your clinical results.

NOTE: Schedule will include a one-hour break for lunch from 12pm to 1pm Eastern time.

There are NO PREREQUISITES for this seminar. It will stand on its own or complement and enrich the live, in-person seminar titled Integrative Massage Therapy. The classes can be taken in any order.
