Learn and experience how to give and receive a professional full-body, therapeutic massage.“Nicolay assured us that we would all be successful. There can be no better endorsement of a training program by the instructor and no higher confidence given to a student in that program!.” Robert – Beaumont, MA
At the end of the 100 hour intensive you will be able to:
- Give a professional massage incorporating a variety of techniques
- Assess indications and contra-indications for massage
- Understand basic anatomy and kinesiology
Touching from the Heart is far more than just learning a technique. It is an invitation to discover the larger context of Being consciously with yourself and another person. It is about waking up to who you really are and communicating from this place. The curriculum is complimented by sessions on communication, human anatomy 101 and kinesiology. The workshop emphasizes being fully present with your mind, body, emotions and breath at all times and approaching the body with loving-kindness.
Touching from the Heart is a combination of the most effective strokes used in modalities such as Hawaiian Lomilomi, Shiatsu, Rebalancing, Acupressure, Deep Tissue, energy work and many other techniques. The strokes are orchestrated into a graceful flow encouraging deep relaxation and release on many levels. At the end of the 100 hour workshop you will have the ability to perform a full massage using the Touching from the Heart Massage sequence. The intentional setting provides a focused experience and a safe learning environment. Yoga and movement are integral part of the workshop for those who wish to participate. Healthy meals, a relaxed atmosphere and time for personal integration and sharing set the tone for an exceptionally rewarding experience.
