Real success in massage therapy, or any method of hands-on healing, depends largely on your mastery of mindfulness and palpation.

Now, you can take matters into your own hands with these two, full days of training. The advanced palpation class blends lecture, discussion, and guided exercises with plenty of hands-on practice to refine your sense of touch. On the first day, working with inanimate objects and living tissues, we practice strategies to increase sensitivity and awareness. Then, we will use our newly enhanced abilities to evaluate the cardiac pulse and respiratory movements for signs of dysfunction, pathology, and nervous system activation. On the second day, our examination of skin, fascia and muscles will flow seamlessly into treatment with results that will boost your confidence as a therapist. If you expect palpation to be boring, I think you will be surprised.
