The Earth Massage is a deep, muscular massage designed to help ground your clients into a body that is free from fascial restrictions created from physical and mental tension.
The course integrates Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release and Swedish Massage. Using the side posture primarily, the Earth Massage routine employs deep, compressive techniques that soften adhesions and muscle fibrosis, reducing the activity of myofascial trigger points, increasing the mobility of connective tissue and joints, and improving posture.
Benefits also include muscle lengthening, increased range of motion, and improved posture. Perform this massage on clients with muscle tension, limited range of motion, or on people who can't lie face-down or face-up for long.
The course video also includes a 5-minute Yoga routine for the practitioner.
