Trager & Somatic Mindfulness- 2 day (18 Hours)

Learn the theory and techniques to complement your massage treatments by reducing or eliminating the potential of massage therapist burnout and/or related injuries; preparing the client’s body for deep work with less strain; and developing, transmitting and sharing mindfulness in action. Somatic Mindfulness workshops (Fundamentals, Connection, Grounding, Expansion & Radiance) expose the massage therapist to tragerwork and mindfulness-based skills that potentiate their therapeutic efficacy. Application of the techniques stimulates the brain's neuroplasticity, introduces new neural sensory information, and activates positive neuromuscular changes in clients. Inherent to the method is support to the therapist's own self-care which ensures career longevity. In Connection the body's sense of interrelation is explored from handles around several body planes and angles. Each workshop is self-contained and there are no prerequisites to take each of the themes.

Fernando is a 2023 inductee at the World Massage Festival's Massage Therapy Hall of Fame; and is recognized as a Master Somatic Movement Therapist by The International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association (ISMETA).

Breast Massage of Breast Cancer- 2 day (16 hours)

Welcome to our transformative Breast Massage class, designed to provide life-changing pain relief and healing for individuals recovering from Breast Cancer, Mastectomy, Lumpectomy, and other challenging Breast Surgeries. Through the art of Therapeutic Massage, participants will acquire essential skills to alleviate pain, enhance range of motion, and guide clients through the physical and mental journey towards reclaiming a sense of normalcy.

One of the key benefits of Breast Massage is its ability to clear the Lymphatic Channels, facilitating the release of toxins from the breast. By addressing fluid stagnation in the tissue, this therapeutic approach not only reduces pain within the breast but also contributes to overall bodily comfort.

Our curriculum includes specialized techniques for muscle release, specifically targeting the shoulders and chest. This is particularly beneficial for individuals who have undergone breast surgeries like mastectomy, augmentation, or reduction, as it aims to restore range of motion often compromised by these procedures. Additionally, these techniques prove advantageous for those who lead sedentary lifestyles, such as individuals working at desks, driving, or using computers extensively.

Breast Massage Therapy plays a pivotal role in maintaining healthy breast tissue by promoting a robust lymphatic flow to the breasts. Unlike other parts of the body that benefit from natural movement and exercise to assist the lymphatic system, breasts are often confined by bras and tight clothing. This massage technique introduces movement to the breast area, fostering lymphatic flow and aiding in the efficient flushing of toxins from the body.

Join us in this empowering and compassionate class as we delve into the art of Breast Massage Therapy, offering not just physical relief but also a pathway to holistic healing. Discover how to bring comfort and restoration to those navigating the challenges of breast-related surgeries, and empower yourself to make a meaningful impact on your clients' well-being.

Upcoming Dates: August 10th & 11th Or September 7th & 8th 2024
