Integrative Massage Therapy
Integrative Massage Therapy is a one-day introduction to holistic massage practice. The integrative massage session can draw from neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, and many other modalities. You will learn to successfully blend techniques and treatment methods by focusing on basic concepts and mechanisms underlying each approach. In this seminar, we will study key principles from Chinese medicine, polarity therapy, applied kinesiology and myofascial release. Then we will discuss how best to incorporate those principles into a cohesive and effective, science based bodywork session. Anyone wanting to develop a more holistic practice, or simply to expand their own understanding, will benefit from Integrative Massage Therapy.
There are NO PREREQUISITES for this seminar. It will stand on its own or complement and enrich the live-online seminar titled Integrative Bodywork Concepts. The two classes can be taken in any order.
Become familiar with the underlying mechanisms of several treatment methods and where they overlap.
