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.
