This course will explore the history, biology, and psychobiology of mind body medicine from an Eastern and Western perspective as it pertains to massage therapy and bodywork. Additionally, guidelines on ethics, boundaries, and communication with clients will be discussed, answering the following questions and more:

  • Why do clients with chronic pain feel better for 1-3 days after a treatment, just for the tension to return?

  • Why don’t zebras get ulcers?

  • What is the role of the Autonomic Nervous System in mind body healing?

  • Why do many people with real, moderate to severe chronic pain have no structural or tissue damage?

  • How do we stay within our scope of practice if tension is other than "physical"?

Finally, we will end with an overview of simple mind body techniques based on neuroscience that can be incorporated into a massage treatment. 

Open to non-massage therapists as well!
