08/13-15/2021 - LomiLomi 'Hawaiian Temple Bodywork' with Jason Bratcher - NEW DATES!!

24 CE hours - Presented In-Person - $475

LomiLomi is an ancient bodywork modality that was created by the Kahuna Healers of Hawaii. The dance-like movements and techniques that are applied create an interconnected flow giving a feeling of being totally supported and cared for while receiving. This bodywork and the philosophy behind it conveys the "Aloha Spirit" and beauty with which the Hawaiian culture honors and celebrates itself. This bodywork is becoming more popular and sought out by massage practitioners and employers for the amazing experiences both therapists and clients have when giving and receiving and because the techniques save your hands and wrists from fatigue and burnout, making an even more valuable skill to learn

09/04/2021 - Mindfulness and Movement for MTs: Advanced Body Mechanics with Kelly Bonanni

6 CE hours - Presented In-Person - $150

As therapists we regularly assess posture, gait, mood, and general health of the client, but how often are we assessing the same criteria within ourselves? This class will delve into these ideas and provide tools for self-care as well as working body mechanics. We will explore some gentle movement and breath awareness to find some relief in our own bodies, and during session trades, we will find the delicate balance between effort and ease by refining our alignment. There will also be time allowed for participants to ask about their specific concerns about body mechanics and self-care so we can workshop them together.
