Over the past 15 years, I have been blessed to study massage and bodywork all over the globe. I see the techniques I learned and the experience I gained like exotic seeds that I collected and brought home to plant. The ‘seeds’ have grown into a plentiful garden that has served my own professional satisfaction and that of my clients for many years.
As a bodywork ‘gardener,’ I have also had the privilege of passing on some of these precious seeds to fellow massage therapists by offering continuing education classes.
Now that I’m settled here in Ashland, I’m ready to offer a unique learning opportunity to a few motivated and passionate therapists. In 2014, I’ll begin an Advanced Bodywork Mentorship program. The program will be for a group of 4 to 6 therapists. We’ll meet one evening a month for three hours to explore various dimensions of being a bodywork practitioner.
Classes will be very experiential, mainly hands-on, and done in a small, personalized learning environment. We’ll explore new techniques, address our own body symptoms, and collaborate to help with challenging client issues. We will also receive some quality bodywork from fellow massage therapists who are dedicated to continuing their own growth.
This program is suited for both newer therapists who are hungry for guidance and deeper learning, and for seasoned therapists looking to be recharged and expand their current relationship to their practice.
Besides teaching techniques, as a mentor, I will also help to draw out your own hidden gifts and bring your unique expression in massage forward. If desired, I will offer insight on practice building, marketing, self care, and offer guidance in creating vision and balance for your practice and life.
Each evening, all lessons will be customized for the group. The lessons will also be filmed and available for participant review. As NCTMB approved Continuing Education, participants will receive 3 CE hours for each class. These hours are also valid for Oregon Massage Board contact hour requirements.
If you’re a massage or bodywork therapist and are intrigued by the prospect of collaborating with other enthusiastic practitioners, please visit my website to learn more about the Advanced Bodywork Mentorship program: www.CoCreativeHealing.com.
Two spots are available for my upcoming February class. If the fit is right, I would love to include a few more therapists in our circle.
If meeting monthly is more of a commitment than you are ready to make, please consider taking one of my weekend classes: “Around the Table, Around the World,” “The Magic of Side-Lying Massage” or “Thai Massage for the Table.”
