Professional Massage Therapy Training
Join us in Portugal or Vermont for intensive training in massage, focusing on energetic and emotional release. Look for future course offerings in Britain in 2013 and in the future in Italy and other international locations.
These trainings are suitable for people wanting to use massage professionally. They are also appropriate for those interested in the training for their own growth and personal development. The Vermont program is taught in 4 day intensives, weekends, one day training session and a one-week intensive segment each summer.
During the winter and spring in Portugal it is possible to attend a 3 month 520 hour training session.
In the 3-part introduction to integrative bodywork (Part 1 of the Portugal Program) you will learn to give a full Integrative Bodywork massage, a sequence of stokes designed to create a sense of flowing wholeness in the recipient. You will also learn basic musculo-skeletal anatomy and the theory and history of massage.
We will work with movement, breath, sound and energetic and emotional release techniques. You will give and receive sessions from fellow students.
In advanced training segments you will learn advanced massage strokes. 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.
