Integrative Massage Therapy
October 5, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm$135
Integrative Massage Therapy is a one-day, intensive introduction to holistic massage practice. The integrative massage session can draw from neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, and many other modalities. This class will help you 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, 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 and skill level, will benefit from studying Integrative Massage Therapy in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
