Massage to Motion; Integrated and Intelligent Movement Solutions - 7hrs

When we allocate exercises for our clients do we question why we are giving them the movements? Is the movement or exercise the most effective for our client? Does it carry over into their everyday challenges?

This workshop identifies how to observe and listen to the body. Giving the client what they need but packaging it how they want it!

Applying "guiding principles" and defining "terms" in our industry and what they really mean, we can achieve greater results for our clients as well as empowering them to take responsibility for their own wellbeing.

Come and experience how feeding the body intelligent motion not only helps you move and feel better but changes your whole emotional state.


  • Define intelligent motion and how it fits into our programming
  • Expose a simple language that improves rapport for you and your client
  • Discover guiding principles that clarify motion and enhance your training modalities
  • Implement simple yet very powerful movements that enhance client outcome
  • Increase ENJOYMENT in your sessions for your clients.
