Structural Deep Tissue Workshop: Somassage®

June 14-17, 2024 | Whidbey Island, WA

Developed based on the Soma Structural Integration® theories, Somassage® is a stand-alone, specialized form of bodywork that uses the fascial system, specific depth, and directionality to advance the client toward optimal efficiency, ease and wellness. It addresses the full-body organization of the fascial structure while recognizing the unique qualities of each individual. This extensively hands-on 4-day workshop gives you skills to improve your body mechanics so you can work with ease while helping your clients feel great.
