Therapeutic Touch for Aquatic Bodyworkers - on Land & in Water
Whether you have arrived at therapeutic touch by foot or fin - this course expands your conception of what is possible through intentional touch. Water and land are different mediums, with gravity shifting its character accordingly.
During this course we bring the “waterness” to sessions on land, and conversely learn how to apply pressure when in water in a manner that feels deeply satisfying. By the end of this course you will understand what “quality of touch” is and how to apply touch in the most meaningful way.
You will also know how to apply a variety of massage techniques to the whole body on land AND in water. Finally, with a kinesthetic awareness of how bodies interact with gravity on land, you will have a deeper appreciation for the joys of manual therapy in warm water.
This class can be customized based on student interest.
