The Portugal program is the core of our institute and our favorite program. It provides unique training in one of the most beautiful and least spoiled areas of Europe, a location of spectacular natural beauty.
'Life changing' is the phrase that comes up again and again in our students' accounts of their experience in Portugal.
This training is suitable for people wanting to use massage professionally. It is also appropriate for those interested in learning massage for personal use. This 3 month program provides more than 500 hours of training. The workshop offers opportunities to explore the deeper levels of ourselves, how we live in our bodies and how we move. It will be a time of personal growth and discovery.
In Part One, you will learn a full-body massage and basic musculo-skeletal anatomy. Attention will be paid to grounding, centering, the quality of touch and the body-mind connection. In addition to learning the basic massage strokes, we will work with movement, breath, sound and energetic and emotional release techniques. You will give and receive sessions from fellow students.
In Parts Two and Three, advanced massage strokes and different bodywork modalities will be taught, as well as techniques for specific situations. You will receive personalized supervision to improve and fine tune your massage. Attention will be paid to the quality of your contact, precision of technique, your body mechanics and the sense of flow - the 'dance' of your massage.
Accommodation is in shared apartments, a short walk from a spectacular beach. Although this workshop is intensive, there will be time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and explore this part of Portugal.
Join us in the Algarve for intensive training in massage, with a focus on energetic and emotional release.
