The Spirit Massage is a gentle stress relieving massage designed to quiet the mind and get the client in touch with own inner healing rhythms.
This course integrates Lymphatic Drainage, Guided Imagery, Energy Balancing, Myofascial Release and Swedish Massage. Benefits include stress relief, deep relaxation, and increased mental, emotional and spiritual clarity.
Perform this routine on receivers who are stressed, scattered, or in emotional turmoil. 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.
The course video also includes a 5 minute Kundalini Yoga routine for the practitioner!

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!
J. Hill, LMT, NCTMB
I really enjoyed the course. I am currently practicing at a rehabilitation center for mentally ill residents. I found the course to be very helpful in my particular practice. The residents responded well to the techniques used, and overall achieved a sense of well-being. Great course!!

This course met all my expectations and will be useful in my practice. I can't wait to take another in this series! The information was clear and to the point. The video was easy to follow in my practice sessions.

Totally enjoyed the materials and video. Found the mix of techniques interesting and insightful. Did find draping technique on leg to be less conservative than I am accustomed to. Diaper draping was the standard at school and work. I have done draping as shown in video but typically only with very long time clients.

I actually watched the video first. It allowed me to see how detailed and thorough the spirit massage is (which I like). I then read through the course material. I printed the test and then went back through the text while answering the questions. I passed the test but now I am actually going to practice the spirit massage on family (husband and kids) until I feel comfortable integrating the spirit massage into my practice. Thank you for providing such a thorough piece of work!
