What you'll learn in this massage class:

Movement in the client’s body can tell us so much about where they are open and flexible and where they are holding old patterns of injuries and restrictions.

In the hands-on Ortho-Bionomy EXPLORATION OF MOVEMENT Class we will be adding movement as an additional tool to help our clients be more open, pain-free, and flexible. The hands-on Exploration of Movement Class gives you techniques and develops your sensitivity of moving the body on the table to evaluate where deeper blockages are, use hands-on movements to release the blockages, integrate at a very deep level in the body, and so much more.

In this Class, You Will Learn To:
  • Use Movement to Evaluate where restrictions are in your client’s body
  • Use very specific Movements to Release their Tension and Holding Patterns
  • Use Movement to Give Your Client a Deeper Experience of their own boundaries and edges
  • Use Movement to Create an Incredibly Fluid Flowing Treatment 
One of the principles of Exploration of Movement is that certain muscle contractions and trauma are created through different kinds of movements - an accident, an emotional trauma, or a repetitive motion. We use gentle and painless hands-on movements to release that specific contraction or trauma. The body recognizes the movement and releases the contractions.
