Therapeutic Relaxation Massage
100 hours

Students  learn  to  give  and  receive  a  full body  massage  in  this  unique  and  refined
training. This  course  has  been  developed from over 19,000 hours of practice by John
Morgan, drawing on the histrical influences of Swedish Massage and Asian Bodywork methods.  This course focuses on utilizing proper body mechanics with an  emphasis  on  forearm,  open  fist, open  palm  and  knuckle  techniques.  Simultaneously,  students  are  trained in  the  qualities  of  a  sensitive,  mindful touch  and  compassion  to  powerfully awaken  and  enhance  the  therapeutic process.  Through  breathing  exercises  in heightened  awareness, mindfulness, and  performing  blind-folded  massage, students  consciously  develop  their  abilities  and  bring  them  more fully into their bodywork.  A thourouh knowledge of Musculoskeletal Anatomy is the heart of the  training  and  contributes  to  a  deep  working  understanding  of  the therapeutic aspects of massage.  Professional communication and developing the ability to manage and meet a client’s goals also form an integral part of professional development at this phase of the curriculum.
