Event Description

Regardless of the healing modalities you use, there is a way to bring the world of energy and consciousness into your touchwork. “When Structure Meets Energy” is a course series for bodyworkers who want to blend energetic principles and practices with their bodywork practice. It is also a course for practitioners of subtle energetic disciplines who wish to incorporate the physical body into their work. Participants will work in a non-modality-bound way with both the physical structure and the energy field of their treatment partners. This series is about integrating energy work and bodywork practices into what can be called “energy-active bodywork.”

In Non-Forcing Release Techniques you will learn unwinding and several other non-forcing release strategies from craniosacral and subtle energy therapies. We will develop ways of using the physical body as a “handle” on larger processes, from physical to emotional and psycho-spiritual. In this class, we will also explore a basic, broadly applicable energy-based model for understanding trauma. In addition, you will learn a number of energy exercises for self-healing and personal development.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy continuing education courses are more than a hurdle to jump for license renewal. Massage therapists today are presented with an incredible array of opportunities to hone their craft, learn new techniques, and expand their practice into new areas. With topics ranging from new modalities to how to build a business, massage CE workshops offer something for every bodyworker.

For NCBTMB recertification, massage therapists must complete 24 credit hours of massage CE classes every two years. Three of those hours must be in research, three must be in ethics, and no more than four can be in self-care. Hands-on CE workshops, seminars, and distance learning offer plenty of ways to fulfill the 24-hour requirement.
