COURSE STRUCTURE

In each workshop we will study a new sequence of movements corresponding to a different part of the body. Each sequence gradually increases from the last and simultaneously innovates from the basic course. New forms of approaching the human body are studied, as well as new tools for the therapist. In each workshop we will revise the sequences learnt on previous days, so that each new session begins from the very beginning and covers the whole sequences learnt as well as the new addition.

We will also be studying applied anatomy for the different parts of the body as we work through the course; with particular attention given to body posture, fluency of movement and quality of contact as well as a whole number of details that make this massage so unique.

Advanced Massage Course

The advanced Californian massage course aims to compliment and extend the training received in previous courses and also complete the full cycle with a wide range of specialized movements and new sequences that enable the therapist to offer a more complete, holistic and fluent body work practice.
This training is aimed at all therapists who have completed the basic and intermediate Californian massage courses.

The content of the advanced Californian massage course is based on a series of movement sequences that we will study throughout the course.

Californian Massage

Intensive summer residential training course in The Algarve, Portugal.

Basic Course:    9th to 15th August 2021      (50 hours)

Intermediate Course: 16th to 22nd August 2021 (50 hours)

Xavi and Linda offer to guide you on an exciting journey through the senses. Enjoy the present moment, breathe it, free yourself and transmit good energy.

We will take you to a truly natural environment, full of peace, with spectacular views located in the Sierra of Monchique, relatively close to the ocean. We will enjoy many days full of tranquility, peace with a lot of learning.

Step by step, you will learn to reconnect and become  aware of your own body’s ability  to carry out its own transformation and healing. You will learn to touch, feel and move through your  body using slow movements, stretches and rotations to create fluidity in order to relax the nervous system. You will also  learn to understand the mechanisms of the body and the muscular actions to release blockages, both physical and emotional.

We offer two training courses in Californian massage.

The Basic course is focused on making you aware of your own body, harmonizing your breath and energy to connect with your center (hara). You will learn to connect with this space within.

From relaxation, you will enter a meditative state that will connect you intuitively with your heart. Through this state you will be able to merge with the person being treated .

You will learn to work with your body weight, this way you will not injure yourself, and to fluently touch each part of the body, to release emotions and tensions, thus freeing the nervous system of your clients.

The Intermediate course focuses on complementing and expanding the training received in the basic course.

You will learn to understand and work the deeper layers of the body, its structure, its mechanisms, the muscular actions, the insertion and origin of the muscles etc.

The objective of the intermediate course is to release deep-rooted tensions in the body, using new techniques and sequences, such as: mobilizations, tractions, stretches, hammocks and  rotations.

The main advantages offered by the intensive residential training in Californian massage are the following:

. Intensive classes morning and afternoon: over six days we will do  very deep and intense work, for this we will spend around eight hours a day in the study and practice of Californian massage. 

. The training program is very extensive, but the method we use repeats massage sequences, and as it’s an intensive course, the practice will be well integrated into the student’s memory .

. We will complement the training with activities to develop your body awareness such as dance, Gestalt, meditation and  yoga. This will help to bring harmony to the overall course.

Esalen® Massage International Certification Training

(Algarve, Portugal 2022)

The 100-Hour Professional Certificate in Esalen® Massage Course offers a comprehensive training for certified bodyworkers who wish to add the Esalen approach to their professional repertoire. The Esalen Institute pioneered many approaches that integrate body, mind, and spirit, and Esalen Massage builds on this rich history in the depth of its curriculum. This method is a “presence-based” practice of awareness which uses simple human touch to awaken inherent processes of healing existing within every cell of the human body. A naturally arising feature of Esalen® Massage in the experience of the client is a sense of restored, embodied wholeness through this powerful healing art.

Because this training is designed for people having experience in another bodywork modality, some intermediate and advanced level techniques will be a part of this curriculum. Both Perry and Eva-Maria integrate Deep Bodywork® into their massage practice, and basic techniques from this form will be a part of this teaching.

Each day begins with training in centering, grounding, and awakening our senses through meditation, yoga, and Movement Practice™. Instruction in Esalen’s holistic approach to massage begins with a focus on our quality of touch through the signature long stroke. The long stroke is an integrating technique which connects all of the different aspects of this work into a flowing whole. It reminds the body that it is composed mostly of water, and that flowing, fluid motion is its birthright. Lectures, demonstrations, and supervised practice will be important parts of each day with special emphasis on proper body mechanics while massaging one another. Relevant knowledge in Anatomy and Physiology are integrated into the teaching of this art. Students will learn communication skills for interacting with clients in a clear, compassionate manner.

Deep Tissue

Deep tissue is a technique used for when our body generates rigidity and lack of flexibility, triggering a slight or noticeable limitation of movement. It focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue.

Its goal is to free chronic stress patterns. Slow and deep maneuvers are used that work with great precision. The thumbs, the fingers of the hand, the elbows and the forearms have to have a sensibility that is obtained with the experience.

In this technique joints are mobilized and elongations are made that help to release tension and reduce stress, but if we do not understand the mechanics, the work loses quality and precision. It is very effective when the muscles are tense, when this happens the circulation of oxygen and nutrients is blocked generating the accumulation of toxins that usually cause the inflammation of the fibers.

It is ideal to treat: chronic pain, high levels of stress, the release of emotions from the past that cause pain, restrictions or muscle tightness, athletes who accumulate a lot of muscle tension because of their training, postural problems, etc.

This technique is oriented to professionals with experience, since otherwise they would be exposing themselves and exposing their patients to possible injuries. The deep tissue takes the therapist to another level of work that requires constant attention and deeper knowledge at an anatomical, postural and sensitive level. The position of the therapist is very important to have control of the different maneuvers and for their personal care.

Throughout the training we will pay close attention to the correct position of the body, both the patient and the therapist. It is important to have knowledge of anatomy, during the course we will provide information of the musculature to work at that time. The groups are small, so the teaching is totally individualized and the quality of it is totally guaranteed.
