Holistic Structural Release

It is a holistic bodywork system that includes releasing stress from the body, organ referral, movement education to create and support an opening for change, healthy lifestyle consulting, supportive body-mind release, holistic bodywork, and energetic interventions to create balance and tap the infinite possibilities of health for the individual.”
Massage Program Description
Our massage program is for mature students who have a strong desire to work with clients who deal with the challenging issues of chronic pain, tension and injury as well as the relaxing, health enhancing benefits of massage. An emotional maturity is required of therapeutic students that will allow therapists to relate to a broader client base rather than only, the ever so yummy, relaxation and stress reduction aspects of massage therapy. When clients see the massage therapist as a valuable part of their wellness program they stay even when money is tight, like in today's economy. It is deeply satisfying work and very rewarding to have a lifelong impact on the joy of daily living for your clients. Bear Heart School teaches Sheryl’s unique way of blending relaxation and holistic, therapeutic techniques that really make a difference on an ongoing basis for regular clients. Reaching beyond the basics, the Therapeutic program includes the Structural Release series for long lasting change for clients and greater marketability for the therapist. For the career minded student the Therapeutic Massage program is the best choice. The exposure to a wide variety of techniques in more than just an introductory format makes this program very competitive while keeping the emphasis on therapeutic bodywork courses and therapeutic practice development. Subjects covered will include basic relaxation massage, advanced techniques in clinical massage, introduction to the holistic healing paradigm, holistic nutrition, aromatherapy, remedies for self care, the mind-body connection, advanced soft tissue release protocols and techniques, a business class to ensure success, and therapeutic relationship and ethics. This program is an effective combination of hands-on techniques, science, advanced therapeutic methodology, and business success. The Therapeutic Massage Program will provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to: achieve excellence in the field of massage therapy, seek Colorado state registration, secure advanced level employment as a therapeutic massage therapist, and be able to create a successful private practice in massage therapy.
