Who doesn't love their neck massaged? Pretty much every client wants you to spend time there. Because it can feel SO GOOD!
The thing is, working in this area can be tiring if you don't use your own body well.
I want to show you simple and highly effective techniques that are easy on your own body while you're helping your clients. Students will learn how to position the client well and how to sink slowly deeper into the tissues without straining your hands, arms, and shoulders. You will leave this training with confidence in your ability to help your clients have an awesome massage experience while also taking care of your own self.

About the "Awesome" Series
Each class = 7 CEs NCBTMB
In each of the Awesome Massage Techniques workshops, you will learn time-tested skills from a well-loved veteran massage therapist. Cat has been a bodyworker for nearly 30 years and has worked with tens of thousands of humans over her career. Considered a master massage therapist, Cat is known as an effective trigger point therapist who helps people get out of pain. And what SHE knows about THAT is that you have to have a whole lot of good-feeling, soothing, awesome techniques to blend with the trigger point work or your client will leave feeling sore and unhappy. She is now offering you the opportunity to learn valuable strokes that will go along with any type of massage work that you are currently doing. Consider it an upgrade to your toolbox. These are super skills any massage therapist can put into practice, and your clients will love. One of Cat’s most popular offerings is called “Ridiculously Awesome Massage” for a reason.
Every Awesome workshop includes Cat’s signature anatomy discussions, some self care practices for YOU, and access to a video summary of the techniques, which means you can refresh your memory when you need some inspiration in your practice.
