Learn all three routines and begin creating your own Integrative Approach to therapy.
Use this massage routine to help ground your clients into a body that is free from fascial restrictions created from physical and mental tension. The Earth Massage routine presented in the video integrates massage techniques from Deep Tissue Therapy, 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.

This massage is most beneficial for anyone who has limited vitality due to excessive stress. The Fire Massage routine presented in the video integrates massage techniques from Sports Massage, Active Resistance Stretching, Neurolymphatic Reflex Massage, Breath Work, Deep Tissue Therapy and Swedish Massage.

The Spirit Massage routine presented in the video integrates massage techniques from Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage, Myofascial Release, Guided Imagery, Energy Balancing and Swedish Massage. The Spirit Massage is designed to quiet the mind and to get the receiver in touch with their own inner healing rhythms. Gentle, energy-based techniques, coupled with guided imagery, induce a meditative state where excessive mental 'noise' is quieted and a sense of inner balance and harmony is attained.

Keep in mind you don't have to complete all three courses at once. Enroll in the collection for additional savings, but complete the courses individually.

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.

I love the elements and flow of the spirit massage! I am experiencing a more profound healing connection with my clients than ever before. Thank you for this wonderfully refreshing integrative approach!
Angela Hart, LMT
This course was the best ever! I have been a massage therapist for 21 years, so this was a refresher course for me. It helped remind me of a few tidbits of forgotten information. And, at the same time it gave me the confidence that I still know my stuff! I'm looking forward to taking more of the Integrative Massage courses.

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!

I have been using the Earth Massage routine on my clients for 5 months and they all have responded very well. They have all stated they feel better and most have not had recurring problems, and those that have stated their problems are decreasing. They are very pleased with the results they are getting.
