Hi everyone I am looking for a place in Illinois that I can do my 24 hours worth of Hands on continuing education. I am not a big fan of online classes. I would like to do Body Wraps and Exfoliation. I am from Illinois. My renewal for licensing is in December. Any help that someone can point me in the right direction will be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Are you ready to take your practice to a new level?

300 Hour Certification in An Awareness Based Approach to Structural Integration
Deepen Your Understanding and Effectiveness as a Massage Therapist!

DATES: July 21 – August 29, 2014
6 week full immersion program

This body of work facilitates greater awareness and the ability to live a more fully embodied life.

We will be working with the myofascial system, to improve the overall functioning of the body/mind. Patterns of chronic holding and congestion in the tissues impair the free flow of precious fluids and nutrients to the cells of the body, leaving parts of ourselves shut down or deadened. This affects not only posture, organs and whole systems but also our perceptions and ways of being in the world. This work is a skillful and effective means of opening the pathways by which we are fed. You will learn to work “deep”, not “hard”, to free up the connective tissues, the medium in which all the metabolic processes occur. As the body opens, we experience less restriction, fuller range of motion, more balanced alignment and a sense of freedom and well being. In a contemplative setting, you will learn a ten session model of very specific techniques for releasing the whole body. We will also be integrating the work of Aaron Mattes, Active Isolated Stretching (AIS), which enhances the work and gives great tools for stretching your clients.

We will be drawing on the work of Ida Rolf, cutting edge cell biologist James Oschman, Bruce Lipton, Neuroscientist Candace Pert and others, to gain a deeper understanding of the actual science that supports the body/mind union

• Technique of ten session bodywork
• Body reading
• Awareness facilitation & Therapeutic skills
• Anatomy & Physiology
• Kinesiology
• Active Isolated Stretching

This is a 6 week, full time Intensive, with class scheduled for Monday – Friday, from 9:00am – 5:00. There is also a clinic practicum Wednesday evening and Saturday morning.

“The highest function of education is to bring about an integrated individual, who is capable of dealing with life as a whole."
—J. Krishnamurti

In this training we will be working with a model of awareness and self empowerment, rather then a “fix it mentality” Although many conditions are improved and often resolved with this work, it’s working with the understanding that “awareness precedes transformation”. If I’m not aware of what my patterns of holding are…there is no hope of change. As soon as I become aware of what I’m doing…there lies the opportunity for change.
