Beginning Biodynamic Massage Sept 9-12th 2022 White Salmon, WA
Join us for a magical opportunity of learning Biodynamic Massage in the midst of 150 acres of forest, spring, creek and meadows! This weekend workshop will be offered at Atlan Center's Forest Camp right outside of White Salmon WA. Atlan is a living and learning village dedicated to the artful co-creation of healthy living systems celebrating the connectedness and diversity of all Life.
Biodynamic Massage as taught in the lineage of Todd Jackson LMT combines deep tissue massage with biodynamic cranial therapy. A balanced blend of direct and indirect approaches, it trains the practitioner to discover precisely where and how to work.
You will learn how to connect with the intelligence within the body and follow it, allowing the massage to be guided by the client’s own healing forces. This is very different than massage being guided by your ‘intuition’ or by a prescribed protocol for manipulation. During biodynamic massage, we learn to recognize, palpate and follow the body’s own inherent plan for self healing.
