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).
