Description:

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, polarity therapy, 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 State College, PA.

Highlights:
  • Learn the benefits of an integrative approach to massage therapy
  • Practice methods of integrative assessment
  • Practice integrative treatment techniques
  • Study the mechanisms of different bodywork techniques and how they overlap
