Details & Registration

It's time to release chronic holding patterns, restore functional movement, bring fresh, oxygenated blood to the surface and eliminate soft tissue pain without exhausting your hands and upper body. You'll be surprised how much massage you can do with your feet on the neck, shoulders, pecs, arms, upper and middle back. At the end of this class you will be able to demonstrate a one hour, upper body Swedish-style massage sequence using mostly your feet and key acupressure points as landmarks. 

Instructor Charlene Gaffney has been a licensed massage therapist for 21+ years and has over 18 years of teaching experience in both entry-level and continuing education environments. She is a registered instructor with the Thai Healing Alliance International, a Certified Massage and Bodywork Educator with the AFMTE and the founder/curriculum specialist for Elevate Massage Training.
