Instructor: Nathalie Cecilia

Bamboo-Fusion Therapy: Save you hands and make deep tissue easy.

 

Bamboo-fusion is an innovative way to provide Swedish or deep tissue full-body massages on the table while reducing stress on your hands. You will learn how to perform the full body massage using warm bamboo sticks of different shapes and sizes. By introducing a new tool, you will increase the number of clients you can apply deep tissue to, give longer sessions without fatigue, and save your hands, wrists, and thumbs from repetitive use injuries. 

 

Nathalie’s goal is to help therapists provide deep tissue massage without pain. Students will receive a manual and a certificate. Bamboo sets and warmers will be sold separately at the time of the class.

CE Provider requires a minimum number of students in class to travel. So book ASAP!

 

Please bring a set of sheets.

Orthopedic Techniques - 18 Hours

October 10th & 11th : 9:00 - 6:00 (Saturday and Sunday)

Instructor: Otis Estes

Orthopedic massage incorporates a combination of effective interactive bodywork techniques.  These techniques may be used to provide rehab and pain relief for post-op concerns, sports and industrial accident recovery, and everyday wear-and-tear difficulties such as postural distortion.  In many situations, even long existing pain and restrictions are relieved.

The techniques are essentially pain free, and bring rapid results.  They may be used by insertion into your normal routine, with little effect on the smooth flow of the session.

Please bring lubricant and one set of sheets.
