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.
Training is given in small groups, and as such the teaching is completely personalized and quality of attention to detail absolutely guaranteed.

Californian massage, basic level, 50 hour course

Residential intensive training to learn and internalize the Californian massage technique. The main advantages offered by this format are:

. Morning and afternoon classes to study and practice Californian massage intensively and in depth for eight hours a day over a period of six days

. The extensive training program with its repetition of massage sequences (close in time) allows the practice to be well integrated in the student’s memory.

. Throughout the training course, we offer a mix of yoga, chikung and dance classes with Susana, with the sessions adapted according to the group. These classes help to clear the mind and activate the body and provide an excellent and enjoyable complement to Californian massage training.

. The stunning natural environment of the Jardín de Mar is the perfect location to enjoy peaceful walks in nature, a spot of meditation, a splash in the pool or a chill out in the hammocks provided.

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.
