Healing Art of Deep Bodywork: Advanced Back-work: Healing Acute and Chronic Back Pain

Mar 29 - Apr 03, 2015 Begins in 12 hours
with Perry Holloman & Johanna Holloman

Competent, deep soft-tissue work is an invaluable tool in the skill-set of today’s successful massage and bodywork practitioner. The number one complaint any bodyworker deals with over time is acute and chronic back pain. In this new Healing Art of Deep Bodywork seminar, we will continue to develop the practitioner’s knowledge of how to assess and relieve the different types of back problems that clients present. Up until now, all of the work on the back we have learned has been done with clients laying face up or face down.

Deep Tissue Skills for Massage Practitioners: Healing the Neck, Opening the Chest and Freeing Breath

Jun 07 - 12, 2015 Begins in 2 months
with Perry Holloman & Johanna Holloman

There is growing demand for massage practitioners who have mastered the art of moving deeply into the body with skill and sensitivity. As we open the body’s deeper soft tissue layers, “stuck” energy in the form of shortened, hardened tissue is mobilized, making this energy available to support us in the process of healing.

Nov 01 - 06, 2015 Begins in 7 months
with Perry Holloman & Johanna Holloman

Mastering the art of moving deeply into the body’s soft tissue layers adds a powerful dimension to the massage practitioner’s skill set. Bodyworkers who have learned to work slowly and with great sensitivity on these deeper layers are sought after both in private practice and in spas. Perry and Johanna Holloman have created a series of classes for massage professionals that are designed to teach deep tissue skills, which are readily integrated into participants’ current massage practice.

Deep Bodywork and Healing Trauma: Working with Difficult Cases

Dec 06 - 11, 2015 Begins in 8 months
with Perry Holloman & Johanna Holloman

Deep Bodywork is a unique modality for healing the effects of trauma within the human organism. Because trauma lives not just in the physical tissues, but in the mind through memory, in the emotional realm through feeling, and in the soul as impression, practitioners must learn to deal with it on multiple levels in order to help heal its often intractable symptoms.
