This is a unique and innovative modality which combines the massage therapist’s sense of touch and anatomical knowledge without the use of lotion or oil.
This modality came about via a client who did not like the feeling of lotion or oil yet wanted and preferred deep tissue massage. My client was very fit and muscular and at first I was challenged by her request. To my surprise and delight, I created a new “modality” (maybe), that when applied correctly, uses a combination of cranial, reflexology, horizontally/vertical (stroke direction) deep tissue, trigger point, and stretching. This “modality” challenges the massage therapist to close their eyes and read the body like braille.
This guided protocol class will teach the massage therapist a new approach to muscle manipulation. You will learn to massage with your eyes closed, how to use outstanding body mechanics, and improve your draping technique
