This course introduces hands-on bodywork and lays the foundation for other modalities by focusing on the healing quality of touch through presence and connection. Students are trained to relax and cultivate awareness in the process of giving massage. This encourages therapists to trust their hands and develop the ability to listen and respond to the body. The enhanced sense of presence also fosters an atmosphere of safety for clients. The Healing Quality of Touch provides the basis for a grounded, healing touch in any massage.
