YOU WILL LEARN
Andrew has devised this very thorough course incorporating different schools of thought in massage, cellular, skeletal and muscular studies, in order to advance your techniques and applications. It is a complete and detailed account of the structure of the body, as well as, attention to body mechanics, which will help you enhance your energy and remain present and free of bad postural habits while giving massage.
YOU WILL EXPERIENCE
This course offers a wide range of cultural and recreational information for learning and community building within our Alternative Answers community. You will embody the skills and practice of a lifestyle of wellness and wholeness. You will enter a relationship of reverence and stewardship toward the body and a respectful relationship to everyone you touch.
This course is very in depth on the muscular-skeletal lessons and the physiology of the body. It is a great foundation. I found it to be both challenging and rewarding (once I studied it a few times). Lots of quizzes to help you remember the material. The massage portion gives you Andrew’s incredible approach to massage. There is real emphasis on how you work with your body to avoid injury and muscle strain on the practitioner. Efficient and very well done.
I highly recommend this course. Although the body mechanics and learning muscles and skeletal information was difficult, I see now, how it has really helped me, especially for testing out of several of my anatomy classes in massage school. What this course offers, that even my school did not, was information on running your massage practice once you graduate. Andrew includes great information on this! Really worth the money!

THE ESSENTIALS OF MASSAGE
Anatomy and Physiology are the cornerstone of good massage training. As a massage therapist, you will need to have a basic understanding of how the body works. Anatomy refers to the structure of the body and the relationship between the structures. Physiology refers to the study of the function of body parts. Pathology is also closely related and is the structural and functional changes associated with diseases.

The home study student can work at their own pace and enjoy the benefits of learning whenever they have the time to do so. Everyone can work when they want, on their own time. You may take as long as you wish to complete this course. There are NO deadlines, NO expectations, NO pressure.

Andrew, what a great course! Really informative. Your approach to massage has been valuable in my approach to healing. Your “no hands leave the body” policy makes ALL the difference in my massage delivery. Your attention to the “musicality” of the massage brought my techniques to a whole new level, absolutely. My clients tell me so, every massage I give. You are definitely an expert in your field. I am so pleased.
