Details of the training

  • Description and Objectives

    Nervous and muscular tension worsens with the accumulation of pain and can become chronic over time. Manual wellness therapies aim at releasing nervous tension and restoring internal harmony. The solutions and the relaxation they induce are at the border between the worlds of psychology and rehabilitation.

    In this training, we will see how to relieve the tensions accumulated in the back, shoulders and neck area. The massage techniques you will learn will help break the vicious circle of an unbalanced health condition.

    The engineering of this training sequence is based on the understanding of the science of touch in order to personalize the care and to respond to the needs and expectations of the persons. Thus we will focus on developing the sense of touch rather than reproducing protocols in a systematic way.

    We will use the recognized techniques of shiatsu, myo-fascia therapy, triggers, as well as work on the release of the breath and the solar plexus.

    An approach to the fundamental principles of Chinese and Japanese energetics will be included in order to address the notion of emotional release. In particular, we will see the bladder meridian and the theory of Yin and Yang.

    To reinforce your knowledge, the examples given in our courses are based on our synthesis of situations encountered in consultations.
