Approvals (MT/LMT): Click here for state-by-state information

Healthy boundaries are critical for any bodywork practice.

They allow individuals to identify the line between ethical and non-ethical feelings, tendencies and behaviors in the treatment room and help us to create an environment where establish and maintain ethical professional relationships can be maintained.

This course looks at the skill of “full body presence” as a way to develop and enhance boundary awareness and as a way to help clincians feel more grounded and energetically full. Participants explore the full theoretical spectrum from permeable to semi-permeable to rigid boundaries and what is necessary for dealing ethically with the intimacy of the therapeutic connection that’s intrinsic to bodywork.

The more fully one inhabits all aspects of oneself, the more capable that person is of listening to the quiet voice of Inner Wisdom.

The practices of Full Body Presence give clinicians the ability to accomplish this and to help find a deeper awareness in each moment, even in the midst of chaos, family and work demands, or the pressure to perform well professionally. It allows for better treatment outcomes and more refined palpation skills. This deeper awareness also brings a fuller sense of trust and confidence in oneself and in the world.
