When I was a Massage Therapy Instructor teaching the science and practice of therapeutic massage, I quickly learned that there was a distinction between medical massage, myomassology, healing touch and the many other variations of this ancient art form. Some schools rather bash the other schools instead of giving the student the option of choosing what best suits their desired outcome.
Recently several people have asked me to teach a class which demonstrates the different options for massage as a career and as a useful skill to support friends and family experiencing stress-related illnesses. I answered the call.
Not everybody wants to be a massage therapy practitioner, but every body does need to be able to comfort and nurture their children and people close to them. We all need to break through barriers to intimacy as we remember how to connect as humans and not robot simulators. This is why I created “Massage 101.”
This Saturday I will teach this workshop for the first time since I’ve relocated to Atlanta and if you know someone who has been considering a career as a massage therapist, this is the perfect introduction to the industry.
