Connected Body Therapy

Connected Body Therapy utilizes a dynamic view of the body offering a theoretical understanding and hands-on, practical applications. Discussing concepts as being grounded, centered, and present within the body, we will practice turning these abstract ideas into tangible hands-on experiences that will immediately enhance your massage practices. 

Designed to be a how-to guide to become more effective and efficient without working as hard, Connected Body Therapy infuses our massage practices with joy and creativity while learning innovative approaches to our long-established massage techniques.

This course teaches connective tissue techniques that are gentle on the client and very effective, without straining the therapist. We will practice palpation exercises to heighten our sensitivity and awareness, and myofascial release, gentle and potent techniques grounded in attentive listening and following the body's subtle signals. In addition, we revisit and explore various techniques such as compression, friction, traction, tapotement, and vibrational methods to enrich your practice, in this new light.

Connect Body Therapy prepares therapists to adapt our practices and meet diverse client needs. This work is safe and supportive for highly sensitive populations, and individuals with hypermobility. The vibrational techniques induce relaxation in systems plagued by chronic tension.

Lastly, and of great importance, we discuss self-care strategies and exercises to mitigate therapist burnout, fortify our energetic reserves, to remain fully present and attuned to clients without compromising our own well-being.

    Curiosity is the fundamental quality that makes Susan a lifelong learner who finds education everywhere, starting in childhood with her parents and the church, and continuing with studies Oxford College and Emory University. The Atlanta Harlequin Rugby team and ASHA School of Massage helped her connect with her own body and learn about bodies in general. Her spirit has been nourished by her many wonderful meditation teachers, and her skillset further enhanced by the good folks at the Barral Institute, as well as Paul Herscu and Amy Rothenberg at the New England School of Homeopathy.
