About the event

PMTI partners with Tracey Moon, LMBT and Sharon Nash, MA to offer this course at The Sanctuary Retreat Center!

Depression and anxiety has become an epidemic in our society with more people than ever seeking relief through both conventional and alternative methods. Trauma, loss, and the everyday challenges of daily life can create constriction and loss of connection in the physical and emotional body.  The physical toll of depression and anxiety reveals itself in the body through tension, pain, misalignment, and discomfort. 

In this course you will learn specific hands-on massage techniques that unwind targeted areas of the body that have been contracted, bringing more flow and movement into the structure. We will look at the science behind depression and anxiety, what is happening in the brain as well as the importance of understanding conventional treatments. We will explore emotional anatomy, including how the body is shaped by our thoughts, feelings and beliefs, and discuss how mindfulness practices can help free us from negative thought patterns. We will incorporate movement and grounding body-centered practices can help support a distressed emotional body system.

You will learn simple body-centered practices to help people feel more alive, connected and embodied through breath, bioenergetics, hands-on work and a compassionate presence. Through these practices you will discover the body’s innate ability to recalibrate, reset, and restore to its natural flow beyond depression and anxiety.

This highly experiential class is intended for the bodywork practitioner to support clients in the healing of depression and anxiety.  However, this training is open to everyone interested in empowering massage and bodywork tools to help feel more vital in everyday life.
