Advanced Integrative Bodywork Workshop: Session Planning & Strategizing
Oct
19
to Oct 20

Advanced Integrative Bodywork Workshop: Session Planning & Strategizing

Whenever we teach workshops the question always comes up: “These techniques are great but how do I put this all together?“ ….. This class is our next step to answering that question.

In this Advanced Workshop for Session Planning and Strategizing we are going to be exploring multiple session planning and full-session work with a client--helping you all to put many of the effective techniques you have learned together to best support the individual client’s needs through our treatment-oriented and holistically-integrated approach to bodywork. Our time will focus on session planning principles, structural strategies, postural observation, palpation, range of motion, one on one discussion of treatment planning and technique suggestions. There will be two in-depth full-session demonstrations, one by Alex and one by Jonathan. You as the student will have the opportunity to both give and receive two full sessions while being fully supported by us right at the tables with approach, strategy and technique suggestions. We will be giving all of you as much hands-on time, practical application ideas, and focused attention for each of your sessions as possible.  

Prerequisites: In order to take this advanced workshop you MUST have already taken at least any TWO other workshops of ours. This is due to the fact that we will be building on ideas, techniques and strategies established in our regular workshops.

We are super excited to finally be able to offer this class and believe me when I tell you that we have put a great deal of time, energy, and thought into creating a class like this for you all. The support and the suggestions from so many of you have kept us highly motivated and we are so looking forward to this workshop with you!

It is highly suggested that you have purchased our textbooks to bring with you for the two days for additional support in your sessions.

We have always based our registration on a first-come first-served basis and that full payment is the only way to insure your spot is reserved. With limited available spots this class will fill up quickly so our suggestion is not to wait.

The workshop runs from 10:00 to 6:00 Saturday and Sunday at The Little Church in Portland, OR. There will be a 45 min lunch each day.

Integrative Bodywork for the Leg, Ankle & Foot

The foot and ankle are recognized as one of the most complicated structures in the human body. The effects of imbalance or dysfunction here in this specific area can not only be seen locally but any of the problems in a client’s feet can be felt throughout their entire body.
