Deeper Tissue Release with Ease
Many Massage Therapists experience injury in their own bodies when they do Deep
Tissue work. For that reason, the average career span for massage therapy is
much lower than other health care professions. Many therapists who continue
their careers begin to avoid deep work as they get older. Yet, many people who
seek out massage therapy enjoy or need deeper tissue work. An opposing problem
exists when deeper pressure is beneficial for clients who simply find deep
tissue painful. Soft Tissue Melting solves both of those problems.
Soft Tissue Melting is about knowing exactly what muscles or trigger points to
address and delivering exactly the right pressure. A combination of traditional
deep tissue and lighter touch therapies such as Cranio Sacral, Jin Shin, and
Energy work are what make up the dynamics of Soft Tissue Melting. Clients who
receive this work should never feel frustrated that the pressure is too light.
On the other hand, people who typically feel uncomfortable with deep work will
feel deep satisfying relief without the pain of other types of deep body work.
Deep Tissue and light touch therapies sound like opposites but learning to do
both at the same time can have a powerful impact on people who are otherwise
uncomfortable with "deep" massage. It can also have a great impact on your
ability to elicit deeper tissue release with ease. The principles taught in this
seminar are ones that could have a lasting impact on you and the work you do
from now on.
