What are your hands contacting when you touch a body? What information is that body conveying to you? During this hands-on class youll refine your palpation skills and learn to distinguish subtle tensions in muscle, fascia, nerves, blood vessels, organs and bone. Youll learn soft-touch assessment and treatment techniques that will radically transform the way you approach a therapeutic session. You'll learn to delve deeper into the body in a very gentle way. This course is designed for Massage Therapists and other professionals, but there will be no specific prerequisites to meet.
