To support the creation of new economic opportunities for local Nicaraguans, we are offering a two-part professional massage training for Ometepe residents. Graduates of the course will be given skills that will allow them to offer massages at InanItah and local area hotels.
The course facilitator is Valerie Cherrin, who has been a practicing massage therapist since 1997 and a massage instructor since 2003. Her passion for bodywork is equaled only by her passion for travel, and she has traveled far and wide, incorporating techniques from teachers in Thailand, China, India, Australia, Hawaii, and Europe. She recently completed her yoga teacher training at Nosara Institute in Costa Rica. To learn more about Valerie, visit her website: www.bodywisdommassage.org.
The course is taught in English and translated into Spanish.
We will focus on more advanced bodywork techniques, including deep tissue and trigger point work, thai yoga massage, and myofacial release work.
This course builds on the foundation of week one, and includes a deeper discussion of anatomy and physiology. It is our intention that you will emerge from this week with basic tools to treat common soft tissue ailments, such as neck, shoulder, and back pain, as well as sciatica.
