Massage Continuing Education

In association with CE Pulse, Seattle’s newest contributor to the counting education landscape, I am offering a number of exciting classes this year. 

Yoga as Self Care for Bodyworkers

This series is dedicated to the practitioner. While full attendance is HIGHLY recommended, we will honor the needs of those who need to drop in class by class. Attendance at the first class is essential to the full understanding of the themes and principles we will cover throughout the series.

Our first class will will be an expanded session in order to review the anatomy of commonly injured regions of the bodyworker’s body. We’ll discuss how yoga can help prevent and rehab injuries that occur in our profession. We’ll also develop a yoga sequence suitable to get you grounded and protected and ready to work.

Region-specific classes will take a more detailed look at anatomy and yoga to support the areas at most risk for injury.

Decompression Techniques

These classes look at petrissage through a new lens, bringing fresh approaches to one of the fundamental swedish massage strokes. Transform your technique into a treatment powerhouse! Slower, more deliberate use of decompression work can offer your clients a longer lasting result than deep tissue alone. In each class Richelle will review anatomy and physiology, assessment principles and hands-on treatment practicum. Pricing to be announced soon.
