Students learn to give and receive a full body massage in this unique and refined training. The Nurturing Therapeutic Massage style is a varia- tion of Swedish massage, using standard techniques including effleurage, tapotement, petrissage, etc. Simultaneously, students are trained in the qualities of sensitivity and nurturance to powerfully awaken and enhance the therapeutic process. Through exercises in heightened sensory awareness and mindfulness, students consciously develop their abilities and bring them more fully into their bodywork. Anatomy and Kinesiology are a major component in the training and contribute to a deep working knowledge of the therapeutic aspects of massage. Ethics and hygiene training also form an integral part of professional development at this phase of the curriculum.
