SPEAK YOUR MIND How many modalities do you know and use? Why? I am trained in eight different modalities, including Bowen Therapy and holistic bodywork treatments. I try to regularly practice all therapies and incorporate useful techniques from each one into every session. I have found that while it is good to specialize in one or two modalities, it is equally beneficial to expand your knowledge in as many therapies as you can, as doing so will only enrich you and your practice. Naomi Finochio Citrus Heights, California FROM MASSAGEPROFESSIONALS.COM I've been to classes for John Upledger's Craniosacral Therapy; Bruno Chickly's Lymph Drainage Therapy; Advanced Trainings'/Til Luchau's Myofascial Release; John Barnes's Myofascial Release. I've learned through DVDs: Val Guin's Forearm Dance Massage; Nathalie Cecilia's Bamboo Fusion; Eric Brown's Chair Massage. No formal training, but getting started in equine craniosacral therapy. I practice all of these, sometimes many of them in combination in the same session. Why? Upcoming Topics Because I believe in the philosophy "when something isn't working, try something else." These modalities all have one thing in common from my perspective: respect for clients—who they are, what they need, what the tissues need.
