The Fire Massage is a revitalizing and rejuvenating massage designed to loosen blocks, relieve stress and energize the body. This massage is most beneficial for anyone who is tired, lethargic or has limited vitality.
The routine presented in this course integrates massage techniques from Sports Massage, Active Resistance Stretching, Neurolymphatic Reflex Massage, Breath Work, Deep Tissue Therapy and Swedish Massage. Benefits include increased circulation, increased vitality and activation of body systems.
The course video also includes a 5-minute Chi Gung self-care routine for the practitioner.
Reviewed video several times to better understand techniques. Quite a lot presented in this course. Also loved the grouping of the 3 courses (Earth, Spirit, Fire). Could see use of techniques from all 3 for various situations. Found I had more questions in this one and had to review several times to make sure I was understanding correctly. As always, seeing helps clear things up, but hands-on is always the defining factor. The videos are very thorough and at a realistic pace to a session, adding good explanations as you go along and suggestions of alternate techniques along with reasons. You get a good understanding of the results of this type of session. Thanks!

To treat the whole patient, a practitioner needs to be well trained and proficient in many different areas. I appreciate how your courses bring the provider and the receiver together making a treatment highly effective. Keep up the good work! Very valuable and useful tools presented.
- R. Rothbaum, NCMT
This was a great course for me to add some FIRE to my OWN practice! After 15 years of practicing massage therapy, I have been concerned about burning out. Your thoughtful and comprehensive course has given me a wonderful new approach to treatment for the many clients I work on suffering from stress and burn-out. I look forward to integrating this work into my repertoire of modalities. Thank you!

I appreciated that the course began with self centering techniques which were new to me. The basic review of general Swedish massage and how those techniques were applied in the Integrative Massage Fire course made it very easy to flow with the hands on practice.
- Jeanna Berdecia, LMT

- Leanne Nguyen, CMT, NCTMB
This course was really interesting to me as at first I thought that is was much that I already knew from years of experience in our field. Silly me! I can say I am never too old to learn something new. You have me clicking once again on behalf of my clients. Can't wait to try my new tricks tomorrow! Thank you!!!
