About the Instructor

Thomas J. Dubois was drawn to the field of massage as an exchange student in college in Nagpur, India.  Thomas, who speaks, reads and writes Hindi, was intrigued by the health benefits of regular massage, something that has been practiced routinely in India to treat a wide variety of health conditions for thousands of years.

After graduating from the Hudson Valley School of Massage Therapy in West Park, New York, Thomas specialized in orthopedic massage and the Active Isolated Stretching and Strengthening technique. In 2012 Thomas received permission from the founder of the AIS technique, Aaron L. Mattes, to teach it to other massage professionals as a continuing education course.

Movement & Exercise

Massage therapy training often focuses on plain anatomy, but studying the body in motion can have a drastic impact on your technique. Movement and exercise therapies are some of the best ways to improve your client’s flexibility, increase range of motion and re-train problematic muscle groups.

Somatics, or psychological perception of movement, and kinetic awareness, the physical perception of movement, form the foundation of many movement therapy continuing education courses. Techniques like Trager and Feldenkrais emphasize somatics while dynamic stretching and corrective exercises focus on kinetic awareness. You can also improve your own perception and core strength through self-care courses in tai chi, qigong and yoga.
