You'll learn how to use your feet to provide a full body deep tissue massage with focus on myofascial release and trigger point work. Using an overhead bar system for support, your client will lie comfortably on your massage table while finding deep, therapeutic relaxation.
Special attention is used with techniques on the posterior side of the client's body.
Your weight and natural gravitational forces are untilized to effortlessly maintain consistent pressure for-easily-a 90 minute (or longer!) comfortable deep tissue massage.

Comprehensive, detailed "feet-on" time allows you to work on a multiple of therapists in class as well as a minimum of 2 in our student clinic. You'll learn to "sink and sync" with your client's body.
