Honolulu, Hawaii (PressExposure) December 28, 2007 -- Touching from the Heart announces massage certification intensive in Hawaii.
Nicolay Kreidler and co-facilitators will be hosting an 11-day, 100-hour massage certification workshop at Kalani Honua Oceanside Retreat on the Big Island of Hawaii. Workshop space is limited and because travel bargains are still available early signup is recommended.
This workshop, approved by the Hawaii Board of Massage teaches a full therapeutic massage within an 11- day intensive. Participants learn everything they need to perform an adaptable massage routine based on the most effective strokes from modalities such as Swedish, Lomi Lomi, Acupressure, Trager, Reflexology, Reiki and many more.
The format is hands-on and past participants have reported that the format was most effective in learning and remembering the techniques. The workshop is open to all participants, and is suited for anyone who would like massage therapy education, whether as a career, as a life-skill or to share with friends, family and community. Accomplished and recently trained massage therapists have experienced this workshop as an excellent opportunity to revitalize and jumpstart their practice.
Massage licensing can be obtained following additional studies and practice based on licensing requirements that vary from State to State. Workshops include yoga and movement to enhance the experience. Massage and healing touch has become the most sought after modality within the context of complementary alternative medicine. This workshop offers the massage training that will qualify participants to approach this rewarding field with the necessary confidence and insight.
The 100 hour Touching from the Heart Massage intensive is a residential workshop. Participants are encouraged to stay at the facility during the workshop with the other program participants, even if they live close by. Past participants have confirmed that staying for the duration of the training is what makes the experience deeply meaningful and transformational. It is what distinguishes our program from many others. Facilitator Nicolay Kreidler says: "This retreat is about having fun and celebrating life. It is about waking up to a world that is alive and mysterious. It is about inquiry and exploration. The experience of the Heart is what we seek before seeking perfection of the technique". Facilitators encourage participants to look at this as a once-in-a-lifetime experience and opportunity to invest in themselves, in their personal development.
The Touching from the Heart massage sequence has been applied and refined over many years by massage therapist and yoga teacher Nicolay at renowned spas and in his private practice. Because this training emphasizes a hands-on approach, students learn these movements effortlessly on the deepest level - much like riding a bike - and are guaranteed to be able to apply it.
