Scalp, Head & Neck “Match & Mirror” Massage
Tuesday, October 10, 9:00am-6:00p

8 CEs  $150

Students will receive instruction on how to provide optimal support with the match and mirror technique during scalp, head, neck and shoulder massage. Students will learn how to apply a matching shape of full-body support behind their hand application to clients on the table. Therapists will demonstrate how to “come into roundness.” Students will facilitate light, moderate, to deeper fascia work where indicated; as their hands become like a hammock of support; while learning modalities for scalp, head, neck, and shoulders. Therapists will compare their body’s mirroring with the ratio of client letting go with ease.
