Mindfulness for Massage Therapists / Bodyworkers

Mindfulness for Massage Therapists / Bodyworkers – with Myofascial Release

Mindfulness has seen a surge in popularity in both the health sciences, and the press – due to clinical studies confirming its efficacy in helping to create better outcomes; both in the treatment room, and in daily life. This workshop is a chance to find out what it’s all about; and be one of those at the forefront of your industry.

How can Mindfulness help our clients?

Many of our clients, especially office, or sedentary workers, are locked in breathing patterns that create, or at least maintain cycles of pain and dysfunction – particularly around the upper back, neck and chest. In this intensive two day workshop, the link between the breath, the body and the mind is investigated – along with treatment interventions, including Myofascial Release – to increase awareness, restore movement, improve function, and eradicate pain.


What will I learn on the Mindfulness for Massage Therapists / Bodyworkers CPD course?

You will learn how to:

  • Begin to incorporate the art and science of Mindfulness into your clinical practice, and your life – and have practical Mindfulness tools to take away.
  • Understand how breathing and pain is related to the fight, flight or freeze responses – and how to use appropriate treatment interventions.
  • Gain an understanding of the role and functions of fascia.
  • Understand how fascia can create pain and dysfunction, and how this can be resolved.
  • Understand how to combine Mindfulness and Myofascial Release to create successful treatment outcomes.
  • Begin to teach your clients body awareness, encourage proprioception, and help clients turn dysfunction into function.
  • Communicate ALL of these concepts to your clients in ways that are simple and engaging, and will create and foster therapeutic alliances, and in turn expand your practice exponentially.

Be calmer, and more confident and compassionate. Know you are working safely.

I’ve done a Myofascial Release Course – is this the same?

This workshop is a journey of discovery that aims to foster intuitive exploration of fascial networks by deepening awareness of present moment experience. The aim of the workshop is NOT simply to have a set of mechanical tools, but rather a set of internal tools which might minimise the need for an exhaustive (and exhausting) list of manual bodywork techniques.

For complete beginners to Myofascial Release this workshop will provide an introduction, and for those who have already undertaken Myofascial training this workshop can provide a very different approach to expanding and developing therapeutic skills.

I’m a Yoga Teacher / Pilates Instructor / Physiotherapist / Osteopath / Chiropractor – and want to gain confidence in the adjustments / release work I already do – is this CPD course suitable?

This workshop will help attune your senses to your clients’ patterns of tension and rhythms of breath. You should find yourself easing into a more intuitive, natural sync with your client, and feel more confident that you are providing a safe, nurturing touch. Developing your awareness can allow you to have greater confidence, and coupled with the communication skills that this workshops will help develop, can allow you to more successfully negotiate the adjustments, or monitor and lead the rehabilitative exercises that you are trained to deliver.

For those with existing qualifications in massage/remedial manual therapy, the Myofascial Release taught in this workshop can be done with the client fully clothed, or through a towel. As well as being a standalone treatment, it can work as a very useful adjunct to other modalities.

Please note that completion of this workshop does not constitute a qualification to practice bodywork.

I’m a Massage Therapist / Physiotherapist / Osteopath / Chiropractor – and want to hone and develop my manual skills –is this CPD course suitable?

Yes – at the core of this CPD workshop is observation – of both self and environment. It can lead to a better understanding of both self and clients, encouraging a greater comfort within; which in turn can translate as a therapeutic touch that not only picks up more information for the therapist, but is also feels safer, more nurturing, and more effective for the client.
