Add Myofascial Release methods to your existing therapeutic skill-set to deliver an even more in-depth treatment to your friends, family and clients.

In Myofascial Release Massage Part I, Upper Body, you will learn 32 release strokes that can be easily integrated into your existing routine, offered as a stand-alone myofascial release massage, or used to relieve common complaints such as lower back pain and sore necks.

We know that the body holds tension and repressed emotion. Many of us, however, do not know what specific tissues are responsible for this occurrence.

In this workshop you will learn to identify, manipulate and release myofascial tissue that holds chronic, painful, and exhausting stress and tension.

By the end of the workshop you will know how to release unwanted stress in the chest, neck, shoulders, hands, back and waist; in other words, over the whole upper body.

In addition, you will gain an understanding of the relationship between posture and emotional attitudes and how constricted myofascial tissue leads to creating and reinforcing emotional negativity.

The strokes will be taught in sequence so that once learnt you will be able to give a Myofascial Release Massage for the upper body.

Imagine how you will feel at the end of the workshop! Your hands will become supple and strong, your neck and shoulders will relax, your chest will be more open, you will naturally breathe more deeply with less effort, and your back and waist will be more flexible.

Imagine how your clients will feel after you have mastered these techniques.

This workshop, taken with the Myofascial Release Massage Part II, Lower Body, will enable you to offer a complete head to toe Myofascial Release Massage as well as work on specific problem areas. The hand, neck and shoulder work is suitable for on-site application as well as clinical practice. We will discuss the conditions and occupations that will benefit most from this work. Contra-indications will also be noted. This class is ideal for those who want to explore the possibility of becoming a therapeutic massage therapist.

75% of this workshop is hands-on practice.

My Hellerwork Training was conducted by Joseph Heller. I took five Hellerwork continuing education seminars in the first three years of my practice and continued to study privately with Heller during that time.

I am also a Certified Myoskeletal Alignment Therapist (the work of Erik Dalton), a Certified Structural Integrator SM, and am licensed by the State of Hawaii as a massage therapist, as well as by the Chiropractic Board of Examiners, State of Maryland.

I've been teaching and expanding the Myofascial Release Massage since 1991. Currently I am visiting faculty at two massage schools on the East Coast.

I have certified three other excellent bodyworkers to teach my seminars — currently in Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Virginia.
