Integrative Bodywork Concepts

This six-hour, live-online class is designed to convey a practical understanding of the deeper strategies and mechanisms which underlie an integrative approach to bodywork. 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 and on virtual partners in the class. Principles you learn in this seminar will deepen your understanding of hands-on healing, transform your experience of bodywork, and boost your clinical results.

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.
