Event Description

In this course, massage therapists will explore movement through the lens of developmental patterns that are naturally present in the human body. The concepts and movement activities presented in this class are offered as a complement and alternative to what massage therapists traditionally learn in school about body mechanics and biomechanical principles. Therapists will learn about developmental movement from both the perspective of human baby motor development and from a larger scope of evolutionary biology. There are six movement patterns and the therapist will first practice each one through guided facilitation then reflect on how that movement manifests (or not) in their own body and during massage application. Upon completion of the class the massage therapist will be equipped with a deeper understanding of organic body movement that will allow them to create new movement habits that better support their practice.

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.
