Speak Your Mind FROM FACEBOOK Watsu. It is life changing, supporting one like a baby in warm water and taking the body through a water dance, allowing range of motion, stretching, and deep relaxation. MARINA SMITH-HICKMAN Learning Bowenwork with the American Bowen Academy changed my practice and my life. Bowenwork is very gentle for both clients and practitioners, it can be applied through clothing, on multiple clients at once and in many different settings, and it has very few contraindications. It has helped so many people with conditions or presentations they were not otherwise able to get relief for with other approaches. HEATHER BOYLE Neurokinetic therapy. It is muscle testing that shows you where the problem really is and gives longer-lasting pain relief results. CHRISTINE BAKER SMRT created and taught by Dawn Lewis. RACQUEL THEIS A modality lately referred to as Tragerwork. It is a natural branch and evolution of the Trager Approach, which is a unique form of bodywork developed by Milton Trager, MD, almost 100 years ago (in Switzerland Trager Therapy is sanctioned by regulatory agencies as a complementary health modality in its own right). Tragerwork is taught by a number of Trager-trained facilitators through NCBTMB-approved continuing education for massage therapists as a complement to the bodyworker toolbox. Avoiding bodyworker burnout, going "deeper" with less effort, and developing mindfulness in action are only a few of the benefits. FERNANDO ROJAS FROM INSTAGRAM Cupping.

Feels great and is incredibly effective and easy on the therapist's body. LEIL ANIDAVENBERRY Ashiatsu because it requires minimal use of the arms and hands.
