The Healing Art of Deep Bodywork®: Deep Tissue Skills for Massage Practitioners, Advanced Hip-work, Feet and Lower Legs

May 27 - Jun 01, 2018 Begins in 1 month
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.

The Healing Art of Deep Bodywork: Back, Hips and Shoulders

Jul 01 - 06, 2018 Begins in 2 months
with Perry Holloman & Johanna Holloman

Deep bodywork, practiced with great sensitivity, is one of the most effective healing modalities available to the bodywork practitioner. Through slowly opening the body’s deeper soft tissue layers, we connect the mind to normally unconscious, “stuck” areas of the physical body, which can release enormous amounts of previously held energy. This energy in turn becomes available to support the body’s innate capacity to self-organize and self-heal, enabling practitioners to support clients in overcoming previously stubborn, seemingly intractable physical conditions.
